The project aims at developing the technologies for analyzing text in the Italian language in order to build a Question Answering system based on semantic relations.

An initial prototype is available called DeepSearch.

As part of this activity, we are developing a full pipeline of NLP tools, called Tanl (Text Analytics and Natural Language) and pronounced 'tunnel', that we are applying to the Italian Wikipedia, creating a large body of text annotated with semantic tags.
