ByT5-base fine-tuned for Hate Speech Detection (on Tweets)

ByT5 base fine-tuned on tweets hate speech detection dataset for Sequence Classification downstream task.

Details of ByT5 - Base 🧠

ByT5 is a tokenizer-free version of Google's T5 and generally follows the architecture of MT5. ByT5 was only pre-trained on mC4 excluding any supervised training with an average span-mask of 20 UTF-8 characters. Therefore, this model has to be fine-tuned before it is useable on a downstream task. ByT5 works especially well on noisy text data,e.g., google/byt5-base significantly outperforms mt5-base on TweetQA.

Details of the downstream task (Sequence Classification as Text generation) - Dataset πŸ“š


The objective of this task is to detect hate speech in tweets. For the sake of simplicity, we say a tweet contains hate speech if it has a racist or sexist sentiment associated with it. So, the task is to classify racist or sexist tweets from other tweets.

Formally, given a training sample of tweets and labels, where label β€˜1’ denotes the tweet is racist/sexist and label β€˜0’ denotes the tweet is not racist/sexist, your objective is to predict the labels on the given test dataset.

  • Data Instances:

The dataset contains a label denoting is the tweet a hate speech or not

{'label': 0,  # not a hate speech
 'tweet': ' @user when a father is dysfunctional and is so selfish he drags his kids into his dysfunction.   #run'}
  • Data Fields:

label: 1 - it is a hate speech, 0 - not a hate speech

tweet: content of the tweet as a string

  • Data Splits:

The data contains training data with 31962 entries

Test set metrics 🧾

We created a representative test set with the 5% of the entries.

The dataset is so imbalanced and we got a F1 score of 79.8

    inputs = tokenizer([tweet], padding='max_length', truncation=True, max_length=512, return_tensors='pt')
    input_ids = inputs.input_ids.to('cuda')
    attention_mask = inputs.attention_mask.to('cuda')
    output = model.generate(input_ids, attention_mask=attention_mask)
    return tokenizer.decode(output[0], skip_special_tokens=True)
classify_tweet('here goes your tweet...')
