BART-LARGE finetuned on SQuADv2

This is bart-large model finetuned on SQuADv2 dataset for question answering task

Model details

BART was propsed in the paper BART: Denoising Sequence-to-Sequence Pre-training for Natural Language Generation, Translation, and Comprehension. BART is a seq2seq model intended for both NLG and NLU tasks.

To use BART for question answering tasks, we feed the complete document into the encoder and decoder, and use the top hidden state of the decoder as a representation for each word. This representation is used to classify the token. As given in the paper bart-large achives comparable to ROBERTa on SQuAD. Another notable thing about BART is that it can handle sequences with upto 1024 tokens.

all_tokens = tokenizer.convert_ids_to_tokens(input_ids[0])
answer = ' '.join(all_tokens[torch.argmax(start_scores) : torch.argmax(end_scores)+1])
answer = tokenizer.convert_tokens_to_ids(answer.split())
answer = tokenizer.decode(answer)
#answer => 'a nice puppet'
