Text classification model based on `EMBEDDIA/sloberta` and fine-tuned on the [FRENK dataset](https://www.clarin.si/repository/xmlui/handle/11356/1433) comprising of LGBT and migrant hatespeech. Only the slovenian subset of the data was used for fine-tuning and the dataset has been relabeled for binary classification (offensive or acceptable).
## Fine-tuning hyperparameters
Fine-tuning was performed with `simpletransformers`. Beforehand a brief hyperparameter optimisation was performed and the presumed optimal hyperparameters are:
```python
model_args = {
"num_train_epochs": 14,
"learning_rate": 1e-5,
"train_batch_size": 21,
}
```
## Performance
The same pipeline was run with two other transformer models and `fasttext` for comparison. Accuracy and macro F1 score were recorded for each of the 6 fine-tuning sessions and post festum analyzed.
| model | average accuracy | average macro F1|
|---|---|---|
|sloberta-frenk-hate|0.7785|0.7764|
|EMBEDDIA/crosloengual-bert |0.7616|0.7585|
|xlm-roberta-base |0.686|0.6827|
|fasttext|0.709 |0.701 |
From recorded accuracies and macro F1 scores p-values were also calculated:
Comparison with `crosloengual-bert`:
| test | accuracy p-value | macro F1 p-value|
| --- | --- | --- |
|Wilcoxon|0.00781|0.00781|
|Mann Whithney U test|0.00163|0.00108|
|Student t-test |0.000101|3.95e-05|
Comparison with `xlm-roberta-base`:
| test | accuracy p-value | macro F1 p-value|
| --- | --- | --- |
|Wilcoxon|0.00781|0.00781|
|Mann Whithney U test|0.00108|0.00108|
|Student t-test |9.46e-11|6.94e-11|
## Use examples
```python
from simpletransformers.classification import ClassificationModel
model_args = {
"num_train_epochs": 6,
"learning_rate": 3e-6,
"train_batch_size": 69}
model = ClassificationModel(
"camembert", "5roop/sloberta-frenk-hate", use_cuda=True,
args=model_args
)
predictions, logit_output = model.predict(["Silva, ti si grda in neprijazna", "Naša hiša ima dimnik"])
predictions
### Output:
### array([1, 0])
