# BART for Gigaword

• This model was created by fine-tuning the facebook/bart-large-cnn weights (also on HuggingFace) for the Gigaword dataset. The model was fine-tuned on the Gigaword training set for 3 epochs, and the model with the highest ROUGE-1 score on the training set batches was kept.
• The BART Tokenizer for CNN-Dailymail was used in the fine-tuning process and that is the tokenizer that will be loaded automatically when doing:
from transformers import AutoTokenizer
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("a1noack/bart-large-gigaword")


# Summary generation

• This model achieves ROUGE-1 / ROUGE-2 / ROUGE-L of 37.28 / 18.58 / 34.53 on the Gigaword test set; this is pretty good when compared to PEGASUS, google/pegasus-gigaword, which achieves 39.12 / 19.86 / 36.24.
• To achieve these results, generate text using the code below. text_list is a list of input text string.
input_ids_list = tokenizer(text_list, truncation=True, max_length=128,
