Large-Scale Simple Question Answering with Memory Networks

ArXiv PrePrint

This paper studies the impact of multitask and transfer learning for simple question answering; a setting for which the reasoning required to answer is quite easy, as long as one can retrieve the correct evidence given a question, which can be difficult in large-scale conditions.
