This paper introduces BIUTEE1, an open- source system for recognizing textual entail- ment. Its main advantages are its ability to uti- lize various types of knowledge resources, and its extensibility by which new knowledge re- sources and inference components can be eas- ily integrated. These abilities make BIUTEE an appealing RTE system for two research communities: (1) researchers of end applica- tions, that can benefit from generic textual in- ference, and (2) RTE researchers, who can in- tegrate their novel algorithms and knowledge resources into our system, saving the time and effort of developing a complete RTE system from scratch. Notable assistance for these re- searchers is provided by a visual tracing tool, by which researchers can refine and ?debug? their knowledge resources an...
