Position statement: Inference in Question Answering


One can only exploit inference in Question-Answering (QA) and assess its contribution systematically, if one knows what inference is contributing to. Thus we identify a set of tasks specific to QA and discuss what inference could contribute to their achievement. We conclude with a proposal for {\em graduated test suites} as a tool for assessing the performance and impact of inference.
