BioASQ Task Synergy on Biomedical Semantic QA for COVID-19

In this task, biomedical experts pose unanswered questions for the developing problem of COVID-19. Participating systems are required to provide answers, which will in turn be assessed by the experts and fed back to the systems, together with updated questions. This task involves IR, QA, summarization and more on an continuously expanding dataset of documents for COVID-19. Through this process, this task aims to facilitate the incremental understanding of COVID-19 and contribute to the discovery of new solutions.

The introductory version of BioASQ Task Synergy has already been completed. Stay tuned for the next version that will take place in spring 2021.
