Many of the chatbots today are still based on rule-based backends. They are, effectively, regurgitating pre-configured contents by traversing a tree-like conversational flow based on the intents of the text entered by human users. The main issue arises when a human user enters some text that has not been included in the conversational tree. Therefore, there has been strong interest in approaches that can solve the challenging problem of Question Answering. The goal is to automatically answer questions posed by human users in natural language, without conversational trees. This talk will address the roles that open source softwares play in the use of deep learning and neural networks on our journey to tackle the Question Answering problem. We will also discuss how this approach differs from classical approaches.
