How to use this model directly from the 🤗/transformers library:

Copy to clipboard
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("monsoon-nlp/dv-wave") model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("monsoon-nlp/dv-wave")


This is a second attempt at a Dhivehi language model trained with Google Research's ELECTRA.

Tokenization and pre-training CoLab:

Using SimpleTransformers to classify news

V1: similar performance to mBERT on news classification task after finetuning for 3 epochs (52%)

V2: fixed tokenizers do_lower_case=False and strip_accents=False to preserve vowel signs of Dhivehi dv-wave: 89% to mBERT: 52%


Trained on @Sofwath's 307MB corpus of Dhivehi text: - this repo also contains the news classification task CSV

OSCAR was considered but has not been added to pretraining; as of this writing their web crawl has 126MB of Dhivehi text (79MB deduped).
