In this study, we extracted articles describing problems, articles describing their solutions, and articles describing their causes from a Japanese Q&A style Web forum using a supervised machine learning with 0.70, 0.86, and 0.56 F values, respectively. We confirmed that these values are significantly better than their baselines. This extraction will be useful to construct an application that can search for problems provided by users and display causes and potential solutions.
