Understanding the Importance of Entities and Roles in Natural Language Inference : A Model and Datasets


Abstract In this thesis, I present two new datasets and a modification to the existing models in the form of a novel attention mechanism for Natural Language Inference (NLI). The new datasets have been carefully synthesized from various existing corpora released for different tasks.

The task of NLI is to determine the possibility of a sentence referred to as “Hypothesis” being true given that another sentence referred to as “Premise” is true. In other words, the task is to identify whether the “Premise” entails, contradicts or remains neutral with regards to the “Hypothesis”.
