Commonsense Validation and Explanation has been a difficult task for machines since the dawn of computing. Although very trivial to humans it poses a high complexity for machines due to the necessity of inference over a pre-existing knowledge base. In order to try and solve this problem the SemEval 2020 Task 4 - ”Commonsense Validation and Explanation (ComVE)” aims to evaluate systems capable of multiple stages of ComVE. The challenge includes 3 tasks (A, B and C), each with it’s own requirements. Our team participated only in task A which required selecting the statement that made the least sense. We choose to use a bidirectional transformer in order to solve the challenge, this paper presents the details of our method, runs and result.
