Deprecation Notice
This model is deprecated. New Filipino Transformer models trained with a much larger corpora are available.
Use jcblaise/roberta-tagalog-base or jcblaise/roberta-tagalog-large instead for better performance.

ELECTRA Tagalog Base Uncased Discriminator

Tagalog ELECTRA model pretrained with a large corpus scraped from the internet. This model is part of a larger research project. We open-source the model to allow greater usage within the Filipino NLP community.

This is the discriminator model, which is the main Transformer used for finetuning to downstream tasks. For generation, mask-filling, and retraining, refer to the Generator models.


All model details and training setups can be found in our papers. If you use our model or find it useful in your projects, please cite our work:
