Development of a web service for creating tests based on text analysis using natural language processing technologies


The purpose of the work is to analyze models, natural language processing methods, and select modern technologies for training these models, as well as to develop a web service for creating tests based on text analysis using natural language processing technologies. The study considers methods and algorithms for
intelligent data analysis to generate questions and correct and incorrect answers from the text. The authors justify the choice of a neural network for generating tests based on English and Ukrainian text, and characterize data sources for training. The study also describes the activity of the proposed model, which will serve as a basis for creating a web service. After a detailed review of these datasets, the necessary data for the experiment were extracted and transformed into a convenient format for use. The training algorithm for 6 models was designed and implemented, and valuable metrics were obtained after their training. Additionally, a server-side and web interface were developed to interact with each other.
