Cross ontology query answering on the semantic web: an initial evaluation
PowerAqua1 is a Question Answering system, which takes as input a natural language query and is able to return answers drawn from relevant semantic resources found anywhere on the Semantic Web.

Second, we provide a first evaluation of the system, which in addition to providing data about PowerAqua’s competence, also gives us important insights into the issues related to using the Semantic Web as the target answer set in Question Answering. In particular, we show that, despite the problems related to the noisy and incomplete conceptualizations, which can be found on the Semantic Web, good results can already be obtained.
