Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), as a multi-dimensional complex system that connects the physical world and the cyber world, has a strong demand for processing large amounts of heterogeneous data. These tasks also include Natural Language Inference (NLI) tasks based on text from different sources. However, the current research on natural language processing in CPS does not involve exploration in this field. Therefore, this study proposes a Siamese Network structure that combines Stacked Residual Long Short-Term Memory (bidirectional) with the Attention mechanism and Capsule Network for the NLI module in CPS, which is used to infer the relationship between text/language data from different sources. This model is mainly used to implement NLI tasks and conduct a detailed evaluation in three main NLI benchmarks as the basic semantic understanding module in CPS. Comparative experiments prove that the proposed method achieves competitive performance, has a certain generalization ability, and can balance the performance and the number of trained parameters.
