Arc of the Conversation Model

Model Details

  • Model Name: arc_of_conversation
  • Model Type: Fine-tuned google/t5-small
  • Language: English
  • License: MIT


The Conversation Arc Predictor model is designed to predict the arc of a conversation given its text. It is based on the google/t5-small model, fine-tuned on a custom dataset of conversations and their corresponding arcs. This model can be used to analyze and categorize conversation texts into predefined arcs.

Model Description

Model Architecture

The base model architecture is T5 (Text-To-Text Transfer Transformer), which treats every NLP problem as a text-to-text problem. The specific version used here is google/t5-small, which has been fine-tuned to understand and predict conversation arcs.

Fine-Tuning Data

The model was fine-tuned on a dataset consisting of conversation texts and their corresponding arcs. The dataset should be formatted in a CSV file with two columns: conversation and arc.

Intended Use

The model is intended for categorizing the arc of conversation texts. It can be useful for applications in customer service, chatbots, conversational analysis, and other areas where understanding the flow of a conversation is important.

How to Use


To use this model for inference, you need to load the fine-tuned model and tokenizer. Here is an example of how to do this using the transformers library:

Running Pipeline

# Use a pipeline as a high-level helper
from transformers import pipeline

convo1 = 'Your conversation text here.'
pipe = pipeline("summarization", model="Falconsai/arc_of_conversation")
res1 = pipe(convo1, max_length=1024, min_length=512, do_sample=False)

Running on CPU

# Load model directly
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("Falconsai/arc_of_conversation")
model = AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.from_pretrained("Falconsai/arc_of_conversation")

input_text = "Your conversation Here"
input_ids = tokenizer(input_text, return_tensors="pt").input_ids

outputs = model.generate(input_ids)

Running on GPU

# pip install accelerate
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("Falconsai/arc_of_conversation")
model = AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.from_pretrained("Falconsai/arc_of_conversation", device_map="auto")

input_text = "Your conversation Here"
input_ids = tokenizer(input_text, return_tensors="pt").input_ids.to("cuda")

outputs = model.generate(input_ids)


The training process involves the following steps:

  1. Load and Explore Data: Load the dataset and perform initial exploration to understand the data distribution.
  2. Preprocess Data: Tokenize the conversations and prepare them for the T5 model.
  3. Fine-Tune Model: Fine-tune the google/t5-small model using the preprocessed data.
  4. Evaluate Model: Evaluate the model's performance on a validation set to ensure it's learning correctly.
  5. Save Model: Save the fine-tuned model for future use.


The model's performance should be evaluated on a separate validation set to ensure it accurately predicts the conversation arcs. Metrics such as accuracy, precision, recall, and F1 score can be used to assess its performance.


  • Data Dependency: The model's performance is highly dependent on the quality and representativeness of the training data.
  • Generalization: The model may not generalize well to conversation texts that are significantly different from the training data.

Ethical Considerations

When deploying the model, be mindful of the ethical implications, including but not limited to:

  • Privacy: Ensure that conversation data used for training and inference does not contain sensitive or personally identifiable information.
  • Bias: Be aware of potential biases in the training data that could affect the model's predictions.
