# roberta-base-squad2 for QA on COVID-19
## Overview
**Language model:** deepset/roberta-base-squad2
**Language:** English
**Downstream-task:** Extractive QA
**Training data:** [SQuAD-style CORD-19 annotations from 23rd April](https://github.com/deepset-ai/COVID-QA/blob/master/data/question-answering/200423_covidQA.json)
**Code:** See [example](https://github.com/deepset-ai/FARM/blob/master/examples/question_answering_crossvalidation.py) in [FARM](https://github.com/deepset-ai/FARM)
**Infrastructure**: Tesla v100

## Performance
5-fold cross-validation on the data set led to the following results:
**Single EM-Scores:** [0.222, 0.123, 0.234, 0.159, 0.158]
**Single F1-Scores:** [0.476, 0.493, 0.599, 0.461, 0.465]
**Single top\\_3\\_recall Scores:** [0.827, 0.776, 0.860, 0.771, 0.777]
**XVAL EM:** 0.17890995260663506
**XVAL f1:** 0.49925444207319924
**XVAL top\\_3\\_recall:** 0.8021327014218009
This model is the model obtained from the **third** fold of the cross-validation.
## Usage
### In Haystack
For doing QA at scale (i.e. many docs instead of single paragraph), you can load the model also in [haystack](https://github.com/deepset-ai/haystack/):
```python
reader = FARMReader(model_name_or_path="deepset/roberta-base-squad2-covid")
# or
reader = TransformersReader(model="deepset/roberta-base-squad2",tokenizer="deepset/roberta-base-squad2-covid")
```
### In Transformers
```python
from transformers import AutoModelForQuestionAnswering, AutoTokenizer, pipeline
model_name = "deepset/roberta-base-squad2-covid"
# a) Get predictions
nlp = pipeline('question-answering', model=model_name, tokenizer=model_name)
QA_input = {
'question': 'Why is model conversion important?',
'context': 'The option to convert models between FARM and transformers gives freedom to the user and let people easily switch between frameworks.'
}
res = nlp(QA_input)
# b) Load model & tokenizer
model = AutoModelForQuestionAnswering.from_pretrained(model_name)
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name)
```
