Natural Language Inference

Breaking Numerical Reasoning in NLI

Are natural language inference (NLI) deep learning models capable of numerical reasoning? This is the question that led to my course project in “Natural Language Understanding and Computational Semantics” course at NYU Center for Data Science. In summary, my teammates and I tried adversarial data augmentation and modified numerical word embedding to show that some of SoTA NLI architectures at the time could not perform correct numerical reasoning that involve adding multiple number words.
