BLOOM (0.56B) fine-tuned on ToTTo for Table-to-text 📋 ➡️ 🔤 aka NARRATABLE

This model is a fine-tuned version of bigscience/bloom-560m on the ToTTo dataset.

The model 🧠

It is a 560M params version of BLOOM 🌸

The dataset 📚

ToTTo is an open-domain English table-to-text dataset with over 120,000 training examples that proposes a controlled generation task: given a Wikipedia table and a set of highlighted table cells, produce a one-sentence description.

During the dataset creation process, tables from English Wikipedia are matched with (noisy) descriptions. Each table cell mentioned in the description is highlighted and the descriptions are iteratively cleaned and corrected to faithfully reflect the content of the highlighted cells.
