xlm-roberta-base-finetuned-naija

Model description

xlm-roberta-base-finetuned-naija is a Nigerian Pidgin RoBERTa model obtained by fine-tuning xlm-roberta-base model on Nigerian Pidgin language texts. It provides better performance than the XLM-RoBERTa on named entity recognition datasets.

Specifically, this model is a xlm-roberta-base model that was fine-tuned on Nigerian Pidgin corpus.

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-naija')
>>> unmasker("Another attack on ambulance happen for Koforidua in March <mask> year where robbers kill Ambulance driver")


Limitations and bias

This model is limited by its training dataset of entity-annotated news articles from a specific span of time. This may not generalize well for all use cases in different domains.

Training data

This model was fine-tuned on JW300 + BBC Pidgin

Training procedure

This model was trained on a single NVIDIA V100 GPU
