πŸ€— + πŸ“š dbmdz BERT models

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

German Europeana BERT

We use the open source Europeana newspapers that were provided by The European Library. The final training corpus has a size of 51GB and consists of 8,035,986,369 tokens.

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

Model weights

Currently only PyTorch-Transformers compatible weights are available. If you need access to TensorFlow checkpoints, please raise an issue!

With Transformers >= 2.3 our German Europeana BERT models can be loaded like:

from transformers import AutoModel, AutoTokenizer

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("dbmdz/bert-base-german-europeana-cased")
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("dbmdz/bert-base-german-europeana-cased")
