There have been promising developments in this subfield of natural language processing (NLP), with systems showing steady improvement and investigations of a range of approaches to the problem. A number of researchers appear to have converged on some defining characteristics of the problem and on characteristics of practical approaches to solving it. RTE solutions have been ...
