Adapter AdapterHub/roberta-base-pf-pmb_sem_tagging for roberta-base

An adapter for the roberta-base model that was trained on the semtag/pmb dataset and includes a prediction head for tagging.

This adapter was created for usage with the adapter-transformers library.


First, install adapter-transformers:

pip install -U adapter-transformers

Note: adapter-transformers is a fork of transformers that acts as a drop-in replacement with adapter support. More

Now, the adapter can be loaded and activated like this:

from transformers import AutoModelWithHeads

model = AutoModelWithHeads.from_pretrained("roberta-base")
adapter_name = model.load_adapter("AdapterHub/roberta-base-pf-pmb_sem_tagging", source="hf")
model.active_adapters = adapter_name

Architecture & Training

The training code for this adapter is available at In particular, training configurations for all tasks can be found here.
