What is the current status of systems which can answer questions framed from a given text article?

Question Generation (QG) [1] and Question Answering (QA) [2] are two different things.  In terms of question answering systems (QA systems), I suggest looking at the Ephyra Question Answering System (OpenEphyra) [3].

As part of my Meta-Guide.com project, I’m currently running an experiment on Twitter, parsing travel questions off the Twitter firehose and running them into two different conversational agents (chatbots) at @VagaBot [4] and @TwavelAdvisor [5].  Over the past year I have accumulated more than 36,000 unique travel questions.
