GigaBERT-v3 is a customized bilingual BERT for English and Arabic. It was pre-trained in a large-scale corpus (Gigaword+Oscar+Wikipedia) with ~10B tokens, showing state-of-the-art zero-shot transfer performance from English to Arabic on information extraction (IE) tasks. More details can be found in the following paper:
