SinNer@CLEF-HIPE2020: Sinful Adaptation of SotA models for Named Entity Recognition in Historical French and German Newspapers

In this article we present the approaches developed by the Sorbonne-INRIA for NER (SinNer) team for the CLEF-HIPE 2020 challenge on Named Entity Processing on old newspapers.

A Monolingual Approach to Contextualized Word Embeddings for Mid-Resource Languages

We explore the impact of the training corpus on contextualized word embeddings in five mid-resource languages.

CamemBERT: a Tasty French Language Model

We explore the impact of the training data size on a French version of RoBERTa. (Equal contribution by the first three authors).
