No One is Perfect: Analysing the Performance of Question Answering Components Over the Dbpedia Knowledge Graph
12 Pages Posted: 20 Jan 2021 Publication Status: Accepted
Question answering (QA) over knowledge graphs has gained significant momentum over the past five years due to the increasing availability of large knowledge graphs and the rising importance of question answering for user interaction. DBpedia has been the most prominently used knowledge graph in this setting and most approaches currently use a pipeline of processing steps connecting a sequence of components. In this article, we analyse and micro evaluate the behaviour of 29 available QA components for the DBpedia knowledge graph that were released by the research community since 2010. As a result, we provide a perspective on collective failure cases, suggest characteristics of QA components that prevent them from performing better and provide future challenges and research directions in the field.
