Question Similarity in Community Question Answering: A Systematic Exploration of Preprocessing Methods and Models

In this talk, I describe a study that systematically combines and compares different approaches to the task of question-question similarity, thereby shedding light on the best practice for preprocessing and vector similarity. In addition, I present an error analysis to gain insight into the differences in performance between the system set-ups and show the results of a real-world evaluation through A/B testing.c.
