Intended uses & limitations

How to use

You can use this model with Transformers pipeline for masked token prediction.

>>> from transformers import pipeline
>>> unmasker = pipeline('fill-mask', model='Davlan/xlm-roberta-base-finetuned-hausa')
>>> unmasker("Shugaban <mask> Muhammadu Buhari ya amince da shawarar da ma’aikatar sufuri karkashin jagoranci")
