Training Machines to Answer Questions Better
Microsoft has published a dataset of 100,000 question and answer pairs called Microsoft Machine Reading Comprehension (MS MARCO) that can help AI developers train their systems to interpret and answer questions. The data is comprised of anonymized real-world English-language searches on Microsoft’s Bing and Cortana virtual assistant. The goal of MS MARCO is to spur the development of AI systems that can answer questions as well as a human.
