Belebele is a multiple-choice machine reading comprehension (MRC) dataset spanning 122 language variants. This dataset enables the evaluation of mono- and multi-lingual models in high-, medium-, and low-resource languages. Each question has four multiple-choice answers and is linked to a short passage from the FLORES-200 dataset. The human annotation procedure was carefully curated to create questions that discriminate between different levels of generalizable language comprehension and is reinforced by extensive quality checks. While all questions directly relate to the passage, the English dataset on its own proves difficult enough to challenge state-of-the-art language models. Being fully parallel, this dataset enables direct comparison of model performance across all languages. Belebele opens up new avenues for evaluating and analyzing the multilingual abilities of language models and NLP systems.

GeoCoV19 is a large-scale Twitter dataset containing more than 524 million multilingual tweets. The dataset contains around 378K geotagged tweets and 5.4 million tweets with Place information. The annotations include toponyms from the user location field and tweet content and resolve them to geolocations such as country, state, or city level. In this case, 297 million tweets are annotated with geolocation using the user location field and 452 million tweets using tweet content.
