Introduced by Amirkhani et al. in FarsTail: A Persian Natural Language Inference Dataset

Natural Language Inference (NLI), also called Textual Entailment, is an important task in NLP with the goal of determining the inference relationship between a premise p and a hypothesis h. It is a three-class problem, where each pair (p, h) is assigned to one of these classes: "ENTAILMENT" if the hypothesis can be inferred from the premise, "CONTRADICTION" if the hypothesis contradicts the premise, and "NEUTRAL" if none of the above holds. There are large datasets such as SNLI, MNLI, and SciTail for NLI in English, but there are few datasets for poor-data languages like Persian. Persian (Farsi) language is a pluricentric language spoken by around 110 million people in countries like Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. FarsTail is the first relatively large-scale Persian dataset for NLI task. A total of 10,367 samples are generated from a collection of 3,539 multiple-choice questions. The train, validation, and test portions include 7,266, 1,537, and 1,564 instances, respectively.
