πŸ€— + πŸ“š dbmdz BERT model

In this repository the MDZ Digital Library team (dbmdz) at the Bavarian State Library open sources French Europeana BERT models πŸŽ‰

French Europeana BERT

We extracted all French texts using the language metadata attribute from the Europeana corpus.

The resulting corpus has a size of 63GB and consists of 11,052,528,456 tokens.

Based on the metadata information, texts from the 18th - 20th century are mainly included in the training corpus.

Detailed information about the data and pretraining steps can be found in this repository.

Model weights

BERT model weights for PyTorch and TensorFlow are available.
