“Researchers in broad disciplines … usually conduct their research by breaking the general problem down into many small problems. … It is rare for many researchers to coordinate their efforts and demonstrate what progress has been made to solve the general problem. This book documents one such effort. … The book is a collection of chapters written by various researchers in the IMIX project. … Anyone who wants to know about the state of the art in question answering will be interested in this book.” (D. L. Chester, ACM Computing Reviews, August, 2011)
