Model Card of research-backup/bart-base-squad-qg-no-answer

This model is fine-tuned version of facebook/bart-base for question generation task on the lmqg/qg_squad (dataset_name: default) via lmqg. This model is fine-tuned without answer information, i.e. generate a question only given a paragraph (note that normal model is fine-tuned to generate a question given a pargraph and an associated answer in the paragraph).



from lmqg import TransformersQG

# initialize model
model = TransformersQG(language="en", model="research-backup/bart-base-squad-qg-no-answer")

# model prediction
questions = model.generate_q(list_context="William Turner was an English painter who specialised in watercolour landscapes", list_answer="William Turner")
  • With transformers
from transformers import pipeline

pipe = pipeline("text2text-generation", "research-backup/bart-base-squad-qg-no-answer")
output = pipe("<hl>  Beyonce further expanded her acting career, starring as blues singer Etta James in the 2008 musical biopic, Cadillac Records. <hl>")
