CamemBERT: a Tasty French Language Model

Introduction

CamemBERT is a state-of-the-art language model for French based on the RoBERTa model.

It is now available on Hugging Face in 6 different versions with varying number of parameters, amount of pretraining data and pretraining data source domains.

For further information or requests, please go to Camembert Website

How to use CamemBERT with HuggingFace

Load CamemBERT and its sub-word tokenizer :
from transformers import CamembertModel, CamembertTokenizer

# You can replace "camembert-base" with any other model from the table, e.g. "camembert/camembert-large".
tokenizer = CamembertTokenizer.from_pretrained("camembert-base")
camembert = CamembertModel.from_pretrained("camembert-base")

camembert.eval()  # disable dropout (or leave in train mode to finetune)
Filling masks using pipeline
from transformers import pipeline 

camembert_fill_mask  = pipeline("fill-mask", model="camembert-base", tokenizer="camembert-base")
results = camembert_fill_mask("Le camembert est <mask> :)")
# results
#[{'sequence': '<s> Le camembert est délicieux :)</s>', 'score': 0.4909103214740753, 'token': 7200},
# {'sequence': '<s> Le camembert est excellent :)</s>', 'score': 0.10556930303573608, 'token': 2183}, 
# {'sequence': '<s> Le camembert est succulent :)</s>', 'score': 0.03453315049409866, 'token': 26202}, 
# {'sequence': '<s> Le camembert est meilleur :)</s>', 'score': 0.03303130343556404, 'token': 528}, 
# {'sequence': '<s> Le camembert est parfait :)</s>', 'score': 0.030076518654823303, 'token': 1654}]
Extract contextual embedding features from Camembert output
import torch
# Tokenize in sub-words with SentencePiece
tokenized_sentence = tokenizer.tokenize("J'aime le camembert !")
# ['▁J', "'", 'aime', '▁le', '▁ca', 'member', 't', '▁!'] 

# 1-hot encode and add special starting and end tokens 
encoded_sentence = tokenizer.encode(tokenized_sentence)
# [5, 121, 11, 660, 16, 730, 25543, 110, 83, 6] 
# NB: Can be done in one step : tokenize.encode("J'aime le camembert !")

# Feed tokens to Camembert as a torch tensor (batch dim 1)
encoded_sentence = torch.tensor(encoded_sentence).unsqueeze(0)
embeddings, _ = camembert(encoded_sentence)
# embeddings.detach()
# embeddings.size torch.Size([1, 10, 768])
# tensor([[[-0.0254,  0.0235,  0.1027,  ..., -0.1459, -0.0205, -0.0116],
#         [ 0.0606, -0.1811, -0.0418,  ..., -0.1815,  0.0880, -0.0766],
#         [-0.1561, -0.1127,  0.2687,  ..., -0.0648,  0.0249,  0.0446],
#         ...,
Extract contextual embedding features from all Camembert layers
from transformers import CamembertConfig
# (Need to reload the model with new config)
config = CamembertConfig.from_pretrained("camembert-base", output_hidden_states=True)
camembert = CamembertModel.from_pretrained("camembert-base", config=config)

embeddings, _, all_layer_embeddings = camembert(encoded_sentence)
#  all_layer_embeddings list of len(all_layer_embeddings) == 13 (input embedding layer + 12 self attention layers)
all_layer_embeddings[5]
# layer 5 contextual embedding : size torch.Size([1, 10, 768])
#tensor([[[-0.0032,  0.0075,  0.0040,  ..., -0.0025, -0.0178, -0.0210],
