The host name or IP address of the IDOL Eduction Server that the system must connect to. You must also specify the component ACI port, by using the EductionACIPort parameter.

This parameter is required for a system that has Type set to Factbank or passageextractor.

In a Fact Bank system, the Eduction Server parses incoming questions to find the entities and qualifiers that define the question, and then uses the parsed information to search the fact store for an answer.

In a Passage Extractor system, the Eduction Server identifies entities in text that might form legitimate answers. It also identifies sentences and paragraphs that might form legitimate answers, by using pattern matching.
