According to NIST TREC a system that can answer both Factoid and Definition questions is AI.
-- "As a quick reminder: a factoid QA is about providing concise facts. For example, "who is the headmaster of Hogwarts?", "What is the population of Mars", and so on, so forth."
-- "Question definition is - an interrogative expression often used to test knowledge. How to use question in a sentence."
So, AI does seem made for.
