This is a test model that was fine-tuned using the Spanish datasets from stsb_multi_mt in order to understand and benchmark STS models.

Model and training data description

This model was built taking distiluse-base-multilingual-cased-v1 and training it on a Semantic Textual Similarity task using a modified version of the training script for STS from Sentece Transformers (the modified script is included in the repo). It was trained using the Spanish datasets from stsb_multi_mt which are the STSBenchmark datasets automatically translated to other languages using Refer to the dataset repository for more details.

Intended uses & limitations

This model was built just as a proof-of-concept on STS fine-tuning using Spanish data and no specific use other than getting a sense on how this training works.

How to use

You may use it as any other STS trained model to extract sentence embeddings. Check Sentence Transformers documentation.

Training procedure

This model was trained using this Colab Notebook

Evaluation results

Evaluating distiluse-base-multilingual-cased-v1 on the Spanish test dataset before training results in:

In our STS Evaluation repository we compare the performance of this model with other models from Sentence Transformers and Tensorflow Hub using the standard STSBenchmark and the 2017 STSBenchmark Task 3 for Spanish.
