  • Abductive reasoning is inference to the most plausible explanation. [...] Key Method We conceptualize a new task of Abductive NLI and introduce a challenge dataset, ART, that consists of over 20k commonsense narrative contexts and 200k explanations, formulated as multiple choice questions for easy automatic evaluation. We establish comprehensive baseline performance on this task based on state-of-the-art NLI and language models, which leads to 68.9% accuracy, well below human performance (91.4%). Our analysis…Expand Abstract
