This is a fine-tuned arabic-t5-small on the task of question paraphrasing.

A demo of the trained model using HF Spaces can be found here

## Training data

The model was fine-tuned using the Semantic Question Similarity in Arabic data on kaggle.

Only the rows of the dataset where the label is True (the two questions have the same meaning) were taken.

The training data was then also mirrored; so if q1 and q2 were two questions with the same meaning, then (q1, q2) and (q2, q1) were both present in the training set. The evaluation set was kept unmirrored of course.
