# ALBERT Persian
A Lite BERT for Self-supervised Learning of Language Representations for the Persian Language
> میتونی بهش بگی برت_کوچولو
[ALBERT-Persian](https://github.com/m3hrdadfi/albert-persian) is the first attempt on ALBERT for the Persian Language. The model was trained based on Google's ALBERT BASE Version 2.0 over various writing styles from numerous subjects (e.g., scientific, novels, news) with more than 3.9M documents, 73M sentences, and 1.3B words, like the way we did for ParsBERT.
Please follow the [ALBERT-Persian](https://github.com/m3hrdadfi/albert-persian) repo for the latest information about previous and current models.
## Persian Sentiment [Digikala, SnappFood, DeepSentiPers]
It aims to classify text, such as comments, based on their emotional bias. We tested three well-known datasets for this task: `Digikala` user comments, `SnappFood` user comments, and `DeepSentiPers` in two binary-form and multi-form types.
### Digikala
Digikala user comments provided by [Open Data Mining Program (ODMP)](https://www.digikala.com/opendata/). This dataset contains 62,321 user comments with three labels:
| Label | # |
| no_idea | 10394 |
| not_recommended | 15885 |
| recommended | 36042 |
You can download the dataset from [here](https://www.digikala.com/opendata/)
## Results
The following table summarizes the F1 score obtained as compared to other models and architectures.
| Dataset | ALBERT-fa-base-v2 | ParsBERT-v1 | mBERT | DeepSentiPers |
| Digikala User Comments | 81.12 | 81.74 | 80.74 | - |
