from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelWithLMHead tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("jannesg/takalane_nbl_roberta") model = AutoModelWithLMHead.from_pretrained("jannesg/takalane_nbl_roberta")
Updates will be added continously to improve performance. This is a very low resource language, results may be poor at first.
