Bangla Benchmark runs


Can these scores be improved? YES!

Rerunning with more training data, more epochs of training, or using other libraries to set a learning rate / other hyperparameters before training.

  • Experimenting with epochs - when I doubled the number of epochs, MuRIL improves only slightly (69.5->69.7 on one task)

The point of a benchmark is to run these models through a reasonable and identical process; you can tweak hyperparameters on any model to improve results.

Releasing Hindi ELECTRA model

This is a first attempt at a Hindi language model trained with Google Research's ELECTRA. I don't modify ELECTRA until we get into finetuning, and only then because there's hardcoded train and test files
