OmniTab is a table-based QA model proposed in OmniTab: Pretraining with Natural and Synthetic Data for Few-shot Table-based Question Answering. The original Github repository is https://github.com/jzbjyb/OmniTab.


neulab/omnitab-large-16shot-finetuned-wtq-16shot (based on BART architecture) is initialized with neulab/omnitab-large-16shot and fine-tuned on WikiTableQuestions in the 16-shot setting.
