POS tagger based on SlovakBERT

This is a POS tagger based on SlovakBERT. The model uses Universal POS tagset (UPOS). The model was fine-tuned using Slovak part of Universal Dependencies dataset [Zeman 2017] containing 10k manually annotated Slovak sentences.


The model was evaluated in our paper [Pikuliak et al 2021, Section 4.2]. It achieves 97.84%97.84\% accuracy.

    abstract = "We introduce a new Slovak masked language model called \textit{SlovakBERT}. This is to our best knowledge the first paper discussing Slovak transformers-based language models. We evaluate our model on several NLP tasks and achieve state-of-the-art results. This evaluation is likewise the first attempt to establish a benchmark for Slovak language models. We publish the masked language model, as well as the fine-tuned models for part-of-speech tagging, sentiment analysis and semantic textual similarity.",
