  • Question Answering (QA) naturally reduces to an entailment problem, namely, verifying whether some text entails the answer to a question. [...] Key Method Multee uses (i) a local module that helps locate important sentences, thereby avoiding distracting information, and (ii) a global module that aggregates information by effectively incorporating importance weights. Importantly, we show that both modules can use entailment functions pre-trained on a large scale NLI datasets. We evaluate performance on MultiRC…Expand Abstract
