  • Publication number: 20210125516
    Abstract: A question that can be answered with polarity can be accurately answered with polarity. A machine comprehension unit 210 estimates the start and the end of a range serving as a basis for an answer to the question in text by using a reading comprehension model trained in advance to estimate the range based on the inputted text and question. A determination unit 220 determines the polarity of the answer to the question by using a determination model trained in advance to determine whether the polarity of the answer to the question is positive or not based on information obtained by the processing of the machine comprehension unit 210.
