We present a new kind of question answering dataset, OpenBookQA, modeled after open book exams for assessing human understanding of a subject.

This requires combining an open book fact (e.g., metals conduct electricity) with broad common knowledge (e.g., a suit of armor is made of metal) obtained from… CONTINUE READING
