Supporting Human Answers for Advice-Seeking Questions in CQA Sites
In many questions in Community Question Answering sites users look for the advice or opinion of other users who might offer diverse perspectives on a topic at hand. The novel task we address is providing supportive evidence for human answers to such questions, which will potentially help the asker in choosing answers that fit her needs. We present a support retrieval model that ranks sentences from Wikipedia by their presumed support for a human answer. The model outperforms a stateof-the-art textual entailment system designed to infer factual claims from texts. An important aspect of the model is the integration of relevance oriented and support oriented features.
