Abstract. Natural language inference (NLI) is a well established part of natural language understanding (NLU). This task is usually stated as a 3-way classification of sentence pairs with respect to entailment relation (entailment, neutral, contradiction). In this work, we focus on a derived task of relation inference: we propose a method of transforming a general NLI corpus to an annotated corpus for relation inference that utilizes existing NLI annotations. We subsequently introduce a novel relation inference corpus obtained from a well known SNLI corpus and provide its brief characterization. We investigate several DNN siamese architectures for this task and this particular corresponding corpus. We set several baselines including hypothesis only baseline. Our best architecture achieved 96.92 \% accuracy.
