About the Model

An English sequence classification model, trained on MBAD Dataset to detect bias and fairness in sentences (news articles). This model was built on top of distilbert-base-uncased model and trained for 30 epochs with a batch size of 16, a learning rate of 5e-5, and a maximum sequence length of 512.

The easiest way is to load the inference api from huggingface and second method is through the pipeline object offered by transformers library.

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, TFAutoModelForSequenceClassification
from transformers import pipeline
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("d4data/bias-detection-model")
model = TFAutoModelForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained("d4data/bias-detection-model")

classifier = pipeline('text-classification', model=model, tokenizer=tokenizer) # cuda = 0,1 based on gpu availability
classifier("The irony, of course, is that the exhibit that invites people to throw trash at vacuuming Ivanka Trump lookalike reflects every stereotype feminists claim to stand against, oversexualizing Ivanka’s body and ignoring her hard work.")
