XLM-R base fine-tuned on English semantic role labeling

Model description

This model is the xlm-roberta-base fine-tuned on the English CoNLL formatted OntoNotes v5.0 semantic role labeling data. This is part of a project from which resulted the following models:

Intended uses & limitations

How to use

To use the transformers portion of this model:

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel



To use the full SRL model (transformers portion + a decoding layer), refer to the project's github.

Limitations and bias

• This model does not include a Tensorflow version. This is because the "type_vocab_size" in this model was changed (from 1 to 2) and, therefore, it cannot be easily converted to Tensorflow.
• The models were trained only for 5 epochs.
• The English data was preprocessed to match the Portuguese data, so there are some differences in role attributions and some roles were removed from the data.

Training procedure

The models were trained on the CoNLL-2012 dataset, preprocessed to match the Portuguese PropBank.Br data. They were tested on the PropBank.Br data set as well as on a smaller opinion dataset "Buscapé". For more information, please see the accompanying article (See BibTeX entry and citation info below) and the project's github.
