Pre-trained BERT on Twitter US Election 2020 for Stance Detection towards Donald Trump (f-BERT)

Pre-trained weights for f-BERT in Knowledge Enhance Masked Language Model for Stance Detection, NAACL 2021.

Training Data

This model is pre-trained on over 5 million English tweets about the 2020 US Presidential Election. Then fine-tuned using our stance-labeled data for stance detection towards Donald Trump.

Training Objective

This model is initialized with BERT-base and trained with normal MLM objective with classification layer fine-tuned for stance detection towards Donald Trump.

Usage

This pre-trained language model is fine-tuned to the stance detection task specifically for Donald Trump.
