The DeepQA pipeline is a composite engine made up of numerous sub-components that work together to answer questions put to the system in natural language. These components include NLP question analysis, search and search result processing, result typing, and scoring algorithms. The pipeline runs on the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA), a software platform designed for the development and deployment of multi-modal analytics for the analysis of unstructured information.
