[Objective] This paper aims to help computer answer questions accurately based on text comprehension. [Methods] First, we proposed a neural network model based on hirrarchical interaction mechanism. We introduced various human thinking mechanism to build this model, which contained hierarchical processing, content filtering and multi-dimensional attention. Then, we ran the proposed model with dataset from Chinese Machine Reading Comprehension (CMRC) 2017. [Results] The precision of the proposed method on test-set was 0.78, which was better than the best result of other published models. [Limitations] There was no further optimization for the potential answers. [Conclusions] The proposed hierarchical interactive network improves machine’s ability to answer questions based on text comprehension.
