A Knowledge-based Textual Entailment Approach applied to the QA Answer Validation at CLEF 2006

Óscar Ferrández, Rafael M. Terol, Rafael Muñoz, Patricio Martínez-Barco, Manuel Palomar
2006 Conference and Labs of the Evaluation Forum  
In our participation in AVE, we propose a system that has been initially used for other task as Recognising Textual Entailment (RTE).  ...  Moreover, due to the fact that these two task (AVE and RTE) have the same main idea, which is to find semantic implications between two fragments of text, our system has been able to be directly applied  ...  Acknowledgements This research has been partially funded by the Spanish Government under project CICyT number TIC2003-07158-C04-01.  ...

Validating Contradiction in Texts Using Online Co-Mention Pattern Checking

Chengwei Shih, Chengwei Lee, Richard Tzonghan Tsai, Wenlian Hsu
2012 ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing  
Detecting contradictive statements is a foundational and challenging task for text understanding applications such as textual entailment.  ...  A novel contradiction detecting approach based on the distribution of the query composed of critical mismatch combinations on the Internet is proposed to tackle the problem.  ...  But few previous works apply Web mining to obtain the required background knowledge for contradiction detection in the textual entailment framework.  ...

Experimenting a "General Purpose" Textual Entailment Learner in AVE [chapter]

Fabio Massimo Zanzotto, Alessandro Moschitti
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present the use of a "general purpose" textual entailment recognizer in the Answer Validation Exercise (AVE) task.  ...  Although, the high variability of the outcome prevents us to derive definitive conclusions, the results show that our approach is quite promising and improvable in the future.  ...  We applied our textual entailment recognition system [4] , developed for the second RTE challenge [3] , to AVE.  ...

Acquisition and Reuse of Reasoning Knowledge from Textual Cases for Automated Analysis [chapter]

Gleb Sizov, Pinar Öztürk, Jozef Štyrák
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this approach a new problem is analysed by reusing reasoning knowledge from the analysis of a similar problem.  ...  It is a non-trivial process even for human experts. To assist experts in this process we propose a CBR-based approach for automated problem analysis.  ...  Our approach relies on a textual graph-based representation TRG, which captures reasoning/explanatory knowledge through causal, entailment and paraphrase relations automatically extracted from text.  ...

Asymmetric Attributional Word Similarity Measures to Detect the Relations of Textual Generality

Sebastião Pais, Gaël Dias
2020 Computers  
Since 2005, in the TE Recognition (RTE) task, systems have been asked to automatically judge whether the meaning of a portion of the text, the Text (T), entails the meaning of another text, the Hypothesis  ...  In line with this direction, in this work, we focus on a particular case of entailment, entailment by generality, to detect the relations of textual generality.  ...  The authors of [55] combined two approaches, a shallow method based mainly on word-overlap and a method based on logical inference, using the first-order theorem proving and model building techniques  ...
