This is the Amharic RoBERTa transformer-based LM. It is part of the effort to build benchmark datasets and models for Amharic NLP.


If you want to test the model in the Hosted inference API, copy the following texts to the box (right side)

Example 1:

አበበ <mask> በላ ።

Example 2:

የአገሪቱ አጠቃላይ የስንዴ አቅርቦት ሶስት አራተኛው የሚመረተው በአገር <mask> ነው።

The example shows possible words for the fill in the blank -- mask task
