Generating and Ranking Distractors for Multiple-Choice Questions in Portuguese

Authors: Hugo Gonçalo Oliveira, Igor Caetano, Renato Matos, and Hugo Amaro

Published in: OASIcs, Volume 113, 12th Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies (SLATE 2023)


Abstract
In the process of multiple-choice question generation, different methods are often considered for distractor acquisition, as an attempt to cover as many questions as possible. Some, however, result in many candidate distractors of variable quality, while only three or four are necessary. We implement some distractor generation methods for Portuguese and propose their combination and ranking with language models. Experimentation results confirm that this increases both coverage and suitability of the selected distractors.

Question Answering For Toxicological Information Extraction

Authors: Bruno Carlos Luís Ferreira, Hugo Gonçalo Oliveira, Hugo Amaro, Ângela Laranjeiro, and Catarina Silva

Published in: OASIcs, Volume 104, 11th Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies (SLATE 2022)


Abstract
Working with large amounts of text data has become hectic and time-consuming. In order to reduce human effort, costs, and make the process more efficient, companies and organizations resort to intelligent algorithms to automate and assist the manual work. This problem is also present in the field of toxicological analysis of chemical substances, where information needs to be searched from multiple documents. That said, we propose an approach that relies on Question Answering for acquiring information from unstructured data, in our case, English PDF documents containing information about physicochemical and toxicological properties of chemical substances. Experimental results confirm that our approach achieves promising results which can be applicable in the business scenario, especially if further revised by humans.
