Model description

CAMeLBERT-MSA POS-MSA Model is a Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) POS tagging model that was built by fine-tuning the CAMeLBERT-MSA model. For the fine-tuning, we used the PATB dataset . 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-MSA POS-MSA model as part of the transformers pipeline. This model will also be available in CAMeL Tools soon.

How to use

To use the model with a transformers pipeline:

>>> from transformers import pipeline
>>> pos = pipeline('token-classification', model='CAMeL-Lab/bert-base-arabic-camelbert-msa-pos-msa')
>>> text = 'إمارة أبوظبي هي إحدى إمارات دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة السبع'
>>> pos(text)
[{'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.9999764, 'index': 1, 'word': 'إمارة', 'start': 0, 'end': 5}, {'entity': 'noun_prop', 'score': 0.99991846, 'index': 2, 'word': 'أبوظبي', 'start': 6, 'end': 12}, {'entity': 'pron', 'score': 0.9998356, 'index': 3, 'word': 'هي', 'start': 13, 'end': 15}, {'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.99368894, 'index': 4, 'word': 'إحدى', 'start': 16, 'end': 20}, {'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.9999426, 'index': 5, 'word': 'إما', 'start': 21, 'end': 24}, {'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.9999339, 'index': 6, 'word': '##رات', 'start': 24, 'end': 27}, {'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.99996775, 'index': 7, 'word': 'دولة', 'start': 28, 'end': 32}, {'entity': 'noun', 'score': 0.99996895, 'index': 8, 'word': 'الإمارات', 'start': 33, 'end': 41}, {'entity': 'adj', 'score': 0.99990183, 'index': 9, 'word': 'العربية', 'start': 42, 'end': 49}, {'entity': 'adj', 'score': 0.9999347, 'index': 10, 'word': 'المتحدة', 'start': 50, 'end': 57}, {'entity': 'noun_num', 'score': 0.99931145, 'index': 11, 'word': 'السبع', 'start': 58, 'end': 63}]

    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.",
