The need for automated text evaluation is common to several AI disciplines. In this work, we explore the use of Machine Translation (MT) evaluation metrics for Textual Case Based Reasoning (TCBR). MT and TCBR typically propose textual solutions and both rely on human reference texts for evaluation purposes. Current TCBR evaluation metrics such as precision and recall employ a single human reference but these metrics are misleading when semantically similar texts are expressed with different… CONTINUE READING
