Natural language inference (NLI) is the basic task of many applications such as question answering and paraphrase recognition. Existing methods have solved the key issue of how the NLI model can benefit from external knowledge. Inspired by this, we attempt to further explore the following two problems: (1) how to make better use of external knowledge when the total amount of such knowledge is constant and (2) how to bring external knowledge to the NLI model more conveniently in the application

We demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms the existing method which introduces external knowledge, and we improve the performance of multiple NLI models without additional external knowledge.
