This paper describes the PASCAL Network of Excellence
first Recognising Textual Entailment (RTE-1) Challenge benchmark1.
The RTE task is defined as recognizing, given two text fragments,
whether the meaning of one text can be inferred (entailed) from the other.
This application-independent task is suggested as capturing major inferences
about the variability of semantic expression which are commonly
needed across multiple applications. The Challenge has raised noticeable
attention in the research community, attracting 17 submissions from diverse
groups, suggesting the generic relevance of the task.
