This paper presents the task on the evaluation of Compositional Distributional Semantics Models on full sentences organized for the first time within SemEval2014. Participation was open to systems based on any approach. Systems were presented with pairs of sentences and were evaluated on their ability to predict human judgments on (i) semantic relatedness(More)
Shared and internationally recognized benchmarks are fundamental for the development of any computational system. We aim to help the research community working on compositional distributional semantic models (CDSMs) by providing SICK (Sentences Involving Compositional Knowldedge), a large size English benchmark tailored for them. SICK consists of about(More)
The continuous expansion of the multilingual information society has led in recent years to a pressing demand for multilingual linguistic resources suitable to be used for different applications. In this paper we present the WordNet Domains Hierarchy (WDH), a language-independent resource composed of 164, hierarchically organized, domain labels (e.g.(More)
Within the field of Statistical Machine Translation (SMT), the neural approach (NMT) has recently emerged as the first technology able to challenge the long-standing dominance of phrase-based approaches (PBMT). In particular, at the IWSLT 2015 evaluation campaign, NMT outperformed well established state-ofthe-art PBMT systems on English-German, a language(More)
The paper overviews the tenth evaluation campaign organized by the IWSLT workshop. The 2013 evaluation offered multiple tracks on lecture transcription and translation based on the TED Talks corpus. In particular, this year IWSLT included two automatic speech recognition tracks, on English and German, three speech translation tracks, from English to French,(More)
This paper presents the Sixth Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE-6) challenge. This year a major innovation was introduced, as the traditional Main Task was replaced by a new task, similar to the RTE-5 Search Pilot, in which Textual Entailment is performed on a real corpus in the Update Summarization scenario. A subtask was also proposed, aimed at(More)
We present the results of the Joint Student Response Analysis and 8th Recognizing Textual Entailment Challenge, aiming to bring together researchers in educational NLP technology and textual entailment. The task of giving feedback on student answers requires semantic inference and therefore is related to recognizing textual entailment. Thus, we offered to(More)
This paper presents the Seventh Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE-7) challenge. This year’s challenge replicated the exercise proposed in RTE-6, consisting of a Main Task, in which Textual Entailment is performed on a real corpus in the Update Summarization scenario; a Main subtask aimed at detecting novel information; and a KBP Validation Task, in which(More)
In this paper we illustrate and evaluate an approach to the creation of high quality linguistically annotated resources based on the exploitation of aligned parallel corpora. This approach is based on the assumption that if a text in one language has been annotated and its translation has not, annotations can be transferred from the source text to the(More)
In this article we illustrate and evaluate an approach to create high quality linguistically annotated resources based on the exploitation of aligned parallel corpora. This approach is based on the assumption that if a text in one language has been annotated and its translation has not, annotations can be transferred from the source text to the target using(More)
