T-verifier: Verifying truthfulness of fact statements

Xian Li, Weiyi Meng, Clement Yu
2011 2011 IEEE 27th International Conference on Data Engineering  
In the first step, we try to find a small number of alternative statements of the same topic as the given statement and make sure that one of these statements is truthful.  ...  In the second step, we identify the truthful statement from the given statement and the alternative statements.  ...  Alternative statements to DS are very important to the truthfulness judgment, because they provide the users with different versions of the fact.  ...

Here it serves to set forth divergent statements of the facts 2 Keigwin, Cases in Code Pleading (1926) 614. with a view simply to avoiding a variance between allegation and proof of these facts.  ...  In this case the use of plural counts seems to be more defensible, for alternative statement of facts may not here be in order at all, or, if in order, will not accomplish the end in view.  ...

In sub-task B, the focus was on identifying the specific cells of a table that provide evidence for the statement. 69 teams signed up to participate in the task with 19 successful submissions to subtask  ...  Our dataset contains 981 manually-generated tables and an auto-generated dataset of 1980 tables providing over 180K statement and over 16M evidence annotations. SEM-TAB-FACTS featured two sub-tasks.  ...  We believe the future of fact verification and AI in general will be in cooperation with humans rather than in replacement.  ...

Beyond Structured Programming [article]

M.H. van Emden
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In 1971 this mode of verification was declared by Dijkstra as too hard to be of practical use---he advised that proof and code were to grow together.  ...  To verify a structured program according to Hoare's method one is faced with the problem of finding assertions to fit existing code.  ...  By choosing verification conditions with sufficiently simple program components their truth is obvious. Because of this simplicity, the verification condition is a mere "snippet of truth".  ...
