Releasing Hindi ELECTRA model

This is a first attempt at a Hindi language model trained with Google Research's ELECTRA. I don't modify ELECTRA until we get into finetuning

I was greatly influenced by:



The corpus is two files:

Bonus notes:

  • Adding English wiki text or parallel corpus could help with cross-lingual tasks and training


Bonus notes:

  • Created with HuggingFace Tokenizers; could be longer or shorter, review ELECTRA vocab_size param


Structure your files, with data-dir named "trainer" here

- vocab.txt
