# Danish BERT for hate speech (offensive language) detection

The BERT HateSpeech model detects whether a Danish text is offensive or not. It is based on the pretrained Danish BERT model by BotXO which has been fine-tuned on social media data.

See the DaNLP documentation for more details.

Here is how to use the model:

from transformers import BertTokenizer, BertForSequenceClassification

model = BertForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained("alexandrainst/da-hatespeech-detection-base")
tokenizer = BertTokenizer.from_pretrained("alexandrainst/da-hatespeech-detection-base")


## Training data

The data used for training has not been made publicly available. It consists of social media data manually annotated in collaboration with Danmarks Radio.
