Furthermore, we develop AfriCOMET, a COMET evaluation metric for African languages by leveraging DA training data from high-resource languages and African-centric multilingual encoder (AfroXLM-Roberta) to create the state-of-the-art evaluation metric for African languages MT with respect to Spearman-rank correlation with human judgments (+0. 406).
While there has been significant progress in ASR, African-accented clinical ASR has been understudied due to a lack of training datasets.
In this paper, we propose a methodology for task 10 of SemEval23, focusing on detecting and classifying online sexism in social media posts.

For task B, we fine-tuned multilingual pre-trained language models that support many of the languages in the task.

In this work, we explore the applicability of low-compute approaches such as language adapters in the context of this low-resource double-bind.
Hence, we also contribute a new, large Swedish bias-labelled dataset (of 2 million samples), translated from the English version and train the SotA mT5 model on it.

We participated in the WMT 2022 Large-Scale Machine Translation Evaluation for the African Languages Shared Task.
Our motivation is to determine which of the recent SoTA models is best for automatic hate speech detection and what advantage methods like data augmentation and ensemble may have on the best model, if any.

This problem is especially pertinent in natural language generation which requires ever-improving suites of datasets, metrics, and human evaluation to make definitive claims.
We experiment with three instances of the SoTA dialogue model, Dialogue Generative Pre-trained Transformer (DialoGPT), for conversation generation.
Results of the survey show that progress has been made with recent SoTA conversational AI, but there are still persistent challenges that need to be solved, and the female gender is more common than the male for conversational AI.

The language with the most transferable properties is the Nigerian Pidgin English, with a human-likeness score of 78. 1%, of which 34. 4% are unanimous.
This paper describes the system used by the Machine Learning Group of LTU in subtask 1 of the SemEval-2022 Task 4: Patronizing and Condescending Language (PCL) Detection.
We investigate the performance of a state-of-the art (SoTA) architecture T5 (available on the SuperGLUE) and compare with it 3 other previous SoTA architectures across 5 different tasks from 2 relatively diverse datasets.
Perplexity score (an automated intrinsic language model metric) and surveys by human evaluation were used to assess the performances of the fine-tuned models, with results that indicate that the capacity for transfer learning can be exploited with considerable success.
