Textual entailment by generality

Abstract : Textual Entailment consists in determining if an entailment relation exists between two texts. In this paper, we present an Informative Asymmetric Measure called the Asymmetric InfoSimba (AIS), which we combine with different asym-metric association measures to recognize the specific case of Textual Entailment by Generality. In particular, the AIS proposes an unsupervised, language-independent, threshold free solution. This new measure is tested against the first Recognizing Textual Entailment dataset for an exhaustive number of asymmetric association measures and shows that the combination of the AIS with the Braun-Blanket steadily improves results against competitive measures such as the one proposed by [1].
