Javanese BERT Small

Javanese BERT Small is a masked language model based on the BERT model. It was trained on the latest (late December 2020) Javanese Wikipedia articles.

The model was originally HuggingFace's pretrained English BERT model and is later fine-tuned on the Javanese dataset. It achieved a perplexity of 22.00 on the validation dataset (20% of the articles). Many of the techniques used are based on a Hugging Face tutorial notebook written by Sylvain Gugger, and fine-tuning tutorial notebook written by Pierre Guillou.

Hugging Face's Transformers library was used to train the model -- utilizing the base BERT model and their Trainer class. PyTorch was used as the backend framework during training, but the model remains compatible with TensorFlow nonetheless.

How to Use

As Masked Language Model

from transformers import pipeline

pretrained_name = "w11wo/javanese-bert-small"

fill_mask = pipeline(
    "fill-mask",
    model=pretrained_name,
    tokenizer=pretrained_name
)

fill_mask("Aku mangan sate ing [MASK] bareng konco-konco")

Feature Extraction in PyTorch

from transformers import BertModel, BertTokenizerFast

pretrained_name = "w11wo/javanese-bert-small"
model = BertModel.from_pretrained(pretrained_name)
tokenizer = BertTokenizerFast.from_pretrained(pretrained_name)

prompt = "Indonesia minangka negara gedhe."
encoded_input = tokenizer(prompt, return_tensors='pt')
output = model(**encoded_input)

Disclaimer

Do remember that although the dataset originated from Wikipedia, the model may not always generate factual texts. Additionally, the biases which came from the Wikipedia articles may be carried over into the results of this model.
