Glot500 (base-sized model)

Glot500 model (Glot500-m) pre-trained on 500+ languages using a masked language modeling (MLM) objective. It was introduced in this paper (ACL 2023) and first released in this repository.


You can use this model directly with a pipeline for masked language modeling:

>>> from transformers import pipeline
>>> unmasker = pipeline('fill-mask', model='cis-lmu/glot500-base')
>>> unmasker("Hello I'm a <mask> model.")

Here is how to use this model to get the features of a given text in PyTorch:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForMaskedLM

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained('cis-lmu/glot500-base')
>>> model = AutoModelForMaskedLM.from_pretrained("cis-lmu/glot500-base")

>>> # prepare input
>>> text = "Replace me by any text you'd like."
>>> encoded_input = tokenizer(text, return_tensors='pt')

>>> # forward pass
>>> output = model(**encoded_input)
