We used three variations of this For example, accuracy of BioBERT on consumer health question answering is improved from 68.29% to 72.09%, while new SOTA results are observed in two datasets. Therefore, the model predicts that Wu is the start of the answer. Inside the question answering head are two sets of weights, one for the start token and another for the end token, which have the same dimensions as the output embeddings. Token “##han” has the highest probability score followed by “##bei” and “China”. Pre-training was based on the original BERT codeprovided by Google, and training details are described in our paper. 2019;28. BioBERT needs to predict a span of a text containing the answer.
