To get the answers of a question there are lots of search engine availbale. But the problem with the search engine is that instead of giving a straight forrward answer they usually gives the links/URL to the webpages which might have the answers. Instead of providing links Question Answering System will provide the straighforward answer to user's question. Tasks intended by the project : • Takes question as an input from the user. • Analyses the sentiment behinds the question. • Lookover the information availbale in the knowledge base related to question. • Compute the answer of the question from the knowledge base. • Present the answer to the user if it is available. Strightforward answer will be very useful and time efficient and it is really helpful for the users who are using small screen devices, since in those devices it is very hard to find answers in webpage with lots of irrelevant content.
