Abstract

The Node of Knowledge (NOK) method is a method for knowledge representation. It is used as a basis for development of formalism for textual knowledge representation (FNOK). Two versions of formalization methods and, respectively, two Question Answering (QA) systems are developed. The first system uses grammars; it is written and implemented in Python. The second, improved system is based on storing text in relational databases without losing semantics and it is implemented in Oracle.

This paper presents the results of comparison of the two QA systems. The first system was tested using 42 sentences. It received 88 questions from users and provided answers. After improving the formalization method, the second system was tested with the same set of sentences and questions. The paper presents the results of the testing, the comparison of answers received from both systems and the analysis of correctness of the answers received.
