Model description

This is a ported version of fairseq-based wmt19 transformer for de-en.

Intended uses & limitations

How to use

from transformers import FSMTForConditionalGeneration, FSMTTokenizer
mname = "allenai/wmt19-de-en-6-6-base"
tokenizer = FSMTTokenizer.from_pretrained(mname)
model = FSMTForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained(mname)

input = "Maschinelles Lernen ist großartig, nicht wahr?"
input_ids = tokenizer.encode(input, return_tensors="pt")
outputs = model.generate(input_ids)
decoded = tokenizer.decode(outputs[0], skip_special_tokens=True)
print(decoded) # Machine learning is great, isn't it?

Limitations and bias

Training data

Pretrained weights were left identical to the original model released by allenai. For more details, please, see the paper.

Eval results

Here are the BLEU scores:

model transformers
wmt19-de-en-6-6-base 38.37

The score was calculated using this code:

git clone https://github.com/huggingface/transformers
cd transformers
export PAIR=de-en
export DATA_DIR=data/$PAIR
export SAVE_DIR=data/$PAIR
export BS=8
export NUM_BEAMS=5
mkdir -p $DATA_DIR
sacrebleu -t wmt19 -l $PAIR --echo src > $DATA_DIR/val.source
sacrebleu -t wmt19 -l $PAIR --echo ref > $DATA_DIR/val.target
echo $PAIR
PYTHONPATH="src:examples/seq2seq" python examples/seq2seq/run_eval.py allenai/wmt19-de-en-6-6-base $DATA_DIR/val.source $SAVE_DIR/test_translations.txt --reference_path $DATA_DIR/val.target --score_path $SAVE_DIR/test_bleu.json --bs $BS --task translation --num_beams $NUM_BEAMS
