xlm-roberta-base-finetuned-swahili is a Swahili RoBERTa model obtained by fine-tuning xlm-roberta-base model on Swahili language texts. It provides better performance than the XLM-RoBERTa on text classification and named entity recognition datasets.

Specifically, this model is a xlm-roberta-base model that was fine-tuned on Swahili 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-swahili')
>>> unmasker("Jumatatu, Bwana Kagame alielezea shirika la France24 huko <mask> kwamba hakuna uhalifu ulitendwa")
