GPT-2 recycled for Italian (small, adapted lexical embeddings)

Wietse de VriesMalvina Nissim

Model description

This model is based on the small OpenAI GPT-2 (gpt2) model.

The Transformer layer weights in this model are identical to the original English, model but the lexical layer has been retrained for an Italian vocabulary.

For details, check out our paper on arXiv and the code on Github.

How to use

from transformers import pipeline

pipe = pipeline("text-generation", model="GroNLP/gpt2-small-italian-embeddings")
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel, TFAutoModel

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("GroNLP/gpt2-small-italian-embeddings")
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("GroNLP/gpt2-small-italian-embeddings")  # PyTorch
model = TFAutoModel.from_pretrained("GroNLP/gpt2-small-italian-embeddings")  # Tensorflow
