Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) has shown marvelous improvements across various NLP tasks, and various variants have been proposed to further improve the performance of the pre-trained models. In this paper, we target on revisiting Chinese pre-trained models to examine their effectiveness in a non-English language and release the Chinese pre-trained model series to the community. We also propose a simple but effective model called MacBERT, which improves upon RoBERTa in several ways, especially the masking strategy. We carried out extensive experiments on various Chinese NLP tasks, covering sentence-level to document-level, to revisit the existing pre-trained models as well as the proposed MacBERT. Experimental results show that MacBERT could achieve state-of-the-art performances on many NLP tasks, and we also ablate details with several findings that may help future research.
