Paraphrase Identification (State of the art)
- source: Microsoft Research Paraphrase Corpus (MSRP)
- task: given a pair of sentences, classify them as paraphrases or not paraphrases
- see: Dolan et al. (2004)
- train: 4,076 sentence pairs (2,753 positive: 67.5%)
- test: 1,725 sentence pairs (1,147 positive: 66.5%)
- Sentence 1: Amrozi accused his brother, whom he called "the witness", of deliberately distorting his evidence.
- Sentence 2: Referring to him as only "the witness", Amrozi accused his brother of deliberately distorting his evidence.
- Class: 1 (true paraphrase)
