Model description

CAMeLBERT-DA SA Model is a Sentiment Analysis (SA) model that was built by fine-tuning the CAMeLBERT Dialectal Arabic (DA) model. For the fine-tuning, we used the ASTD, ArSAS, and SemEval datasets. Our fine-tuning procedure and the hyperparameters we used can be found in our paper *"The Interplay of Variant, Size, and Task Type in Arabic Pre-trained Language Models."

  • Our fine-tuning code can be found here.

Intended uses

You can use the CAMeLBERT-DA SA model directly as part of our CAMeL Tools SA component (recommended) or as part of the transformers pipeline.

How to use

To use the model with the CAMeL Tools SA component:

>>> from camel_tools.sentiment import SentimentAnalyzer
>>> sa = SentimentAnalyzer("CAMeL-Lab/bert-base-arabic-camelbert-da-sentiment")
>>> sentences = ['أنا بخير', 'أنا لست بخير']
>>> sa.predict(sentences)
>>> ['positive', 'negative']

You can also use the SA model directly with a transformers pipeline:

>>> from transformers import pipeline
>>> sa = pipeline('text-classification', model='CAMeL-Lab/bert-base-arabic-camelbert-da-sentiment')
>>> sentences = ['أنا بخير', 'أنا لست بخير']
>>> sa(sentences)
[{'label': 'positive', 'score': 0.9616648554801941},
 {'label': 'negative', 'score': 0.9779177904129028}]

Note: to download our models, you would need transformers>=3.5.0. Otherwise, you could download the models manually.

    abstract = "In this paper, we explore the effects of language variants, data sizes, and fine-tuning task types in Arabic pre-trained language models. To do so, we build three pre-trained language models across three variants of Arabic: Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), dialectal Arabic, and classical Arabic, in addition to a fourth language model which is pre-trained on a mix of the three. We also examine the importance of pre-training data size by building additional models that are pre-trained on a scaled-down set of the MSA variant. We compare our different models to each other, as well as to eight publicly available models by fine-tuning them on five NLP tasks spanning 12 datasets. Our results suggest that the variant proximity of pre-training data to fine-tuning data is more important than the pre-training data size. We exploit this insight in defining an optimized system selection model for the studied tasks.",
