How to use

>>> from transformers import pipeline, AutoModelForTokenClassification, AutoTokenizer

>>> ner_model = AutoModelForTokenClassification.from_pretrained("ychenNLP/arabic-ner-ace")
>>> ner_tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("ychenNLP/arabic-ner-ace")
>>> ner_pip = pipeline("ner", model=ner_model, tokenizer=ner_tokenizer, grouped_entities=True)

>>> output = ner_pip('Protests break out across the US after Supreme Court overturns.')
>>> print(output)

>>> output = ner_pip('قال وزير العدل التركي بكير بوزداغ إن أنقرة تريد 12 مشتبهاً بهم من فنلندا و 21 من السويد')
