Statistics Automation in a Query-Answering System

Thomas Fletcher, Alan Bundy, Kwabena Nuamah

Research output: Working paperPreprint


FRANK is a multi-domain Query Answering (QA) system which performs inferential and simple statistical reasoning on data which it automatically identifies and retrieves (e.g. to provide predictions). SMART is a statistics-advisor system designed to allow FRANK to answer queries of types which have not previously been within the purview of QA systems, including statistical significance, functional shape description and analysis of variance. The combined SMART FRANK system will allow users to quickly obtain answers to data-oriented questions involving choices of analysis, modelling and visualisation which are tedious for an expert and beyond the knowledge of the novice.
