I am interested in knowing more about major algorithms on question answering. Where should I start and can you please suggest a book?

Also I'd like to know if there are open source software tools (preferably in Python) that can get me started

I'd start by looking at the ACL anthology: a search for question. While I don't know of any tools specific to question answering, you'll probably need a dependency parser and some form of information extraction (Yao, Riedel, and McCallum) or semantic parsing (Poon and Domingos).

Thanks for pointing out the search over the ACL anthology, this is really useful :)

In addition to "question" keyword one can search for "interrogation". In particular the "logic of interrogation".
