## Model description

ELECTRA-Base model (google/electra-base-discriminator) fine-tuned on the MS MARCO passage classification task. It is intended to be used as a ForSequenceClassification model, but requires some modification since it contains a BERT classification head rather than the standard ELECTRA classification head. See the TFElectraRelevanceHead in the Capreolus BERT-MaxP implementation for a usage example.

This corresponds to the ELECTRA-Base model used to initialize PARADE (ELECTRA) in PARADE: Passage Representation Aggregation for Document Reranking by Li et al. It was converted from the released TFv1 checkpoint. Please cite the PARADE paper if you use these weights.
