While there is an increasing interest in developing natural language question answering systems, it is widely understood that it requires expertise in various technologies. There is thus a need for collaboration among interested parties. This paper presents the OKBQA framework, which is designed to organize collaboration for development of natural language question answering systems. The prototype demo system with two reference workflows, for question answering in English and Korean, will demonstrate how the framework works, and also how it can support distributed voluntary collaboration for further development.
