Model description

This model was trained on the MultiNLI dataset, which consists of 392 702 NLI hypothesis-premise pairs. The base model is DeBERTa-v3-base from Microsoft. The v3 variant of DeBERTa substantially outperforms previous versions of the model by including a different pre-training objective, see annex 11 of the original DeBERTa paper. For a more powerful model, check out DeBERTa-v3-base-mnli-fever-anli which was trained on even more data.

Intended uses & limitations

How to use the model

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSequenceClassification
import torch
model_name = "MoritzLaurer/DeBERTa-v3-base-mnli"
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name)
model = AutoModelForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained(model_name)
premise = "I first thought that I liked the movie, but upon second thought it was actually disappointing."
hypothesis = "The movie was good."
input = tokenizer(premise, hypothesis, truncation=True, return_tensors="pt")
output = model(input["input_ids"].to(device))  # device = "cuda:0" or "cpu"
prediction = torch.softmax(output["logits"][0], -1).tolist()
label_names = ["entailment", "neutral", "contradiction"]
prediction = {name: round(float(pred) * 100, 1) for pred, name in zip(prediction, label_names)}

Training data

This model was trained on the MultiNLI dataset, which consists of 392 702 NLI hypothesis-premise pairs.

Training procedure

DeBERTa-v3-base-mnli was trained using the Hugging Face trainer with the following hyperparameters.

training_args = TrainingArguments(
    num_train_epochs=5,              # total number of training epochs
    per_device_train_batch_size=32,   # batch size per device during training
    per_device_eval_batch_size=32,    # batch size for evaluation
    warmup_ratio=0.1,                # number of warmup steps for learning rate scheduler
    weight_decay=0.06,               # strength of weight decay
    fp16=True                        # mixed precision training

Eval results

The model was evaluated using the matched test set and achieves 0.90 accuracy.

Limitations and bias

Please consult the original DeBERTa paper and literature on different NLI datasets for potential biases.

Debugging and issues

Note that DeBERTa-v3 was released recently and older versions of HF Transformers seem to have issues running the model (e.g. resulting in an issue with the tokenizer). Using Transformers==4.13 might solve some issues.
