Longformer

Overview

The Longformer model was presented in Longformer: The Long-Document Transformer by Iz Beltagy, Matthew E. Peters, Arman Cohan.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Transformer-based models are unable to process long sequences due to their self-attention operation, which scales quadratically with the sequence length. To address this limitation, we introduce the Longformer with an attention mechanism that scales linearly with sequence length, making it easy to process documents of thousands of tokens or longer. Longformer’s attention mechanism is a drop-in replacement for the standard self-attention and combines a local windowed attention with a task motivated global attention. Following prior work on long-sequence transformers, we evaluate Longformer on character-level language modeling and achieve state-of-the-art results on text8 and enwik8. In contrast to most prior work, we also pretrain Longformer and finetune it on a variety of downstream tasks. Our pretrained Longformer consistently outperforms RoBERTa on long document tasks and sets new state-of-the-art results on WikiHop and TriviaQA.

Tips:

  • Since the Longformer is based on RoBERTa, it doesn’t have token_type_ids. You don’t need to indicate which token belongs to which segment. Just separate your segments with the separation token tokenizer.sep_token (or </s>).

This model was contributed by beltagy. The Authors’ code can be found here.

Longformer Self Attention

Longformer self attention employs self attention on both a “local” context and a “global” context. Most tokens only attend “locally” to each other meaning that each token attends to its 12w\frac{1}{2} w previous tokens and 12w\frac{1}{2} w succeeding tokens with ww being the window length as defined in config.attention_window. Note that config.attention_window can be of type List to define a different ww for each layer. A selected few tokens attend “globally” to all other tokens, as it is conventionally done for all tokens in BertSelfAttention.

Note that “locally” and “globally” attending tokens are projected by different query, key and value matrices. Also note that every “locally” attending token not only attends to tokens within its window ww, but also to all “globally” attending tokens so that global attention is symmetric.

The user can define which tokens attend “locally” and which tokens attend “globally” by setting the tensor global_attention_mask at run-time appropriately. All Longformer models employ the following logic for global_attention_mask:

  • 0: the token attends “locally”,
  • 1: the token attends “globally”.

For more information please also refer to forward() method.

Using Longformer self attention, the memory and time complexity of the query-key matmul operation, which usually represents the memory and time bottleneck, can be reduced from O(ns×ns)\mathcal{O}(n_s \times n_s) to O(ns×w)\mathcal{O}(n_s \times w), with nsn_s being the sequence length and ww being the average window size. It is assumed that the number of “globally” attending tokens is insignificant as compared to the number of “locally” attending tokens.

For more information, please refer to the official paper.

Training

LongformerForMaskedLM is trained the exact same way RobertaForMaskedLM is trained and should be used as follows:

input_ids = tokenizer.encode("This is a sentence from [MASK] training data", return_tensors="pt")
mlm_labels = tokenizer.encode("This is a sentence from the training data", return_tensors="pt")

loss = model(input_ids, labels=input_ids, masked_lm_labels=mlm_labels)[0]

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a LongformerModel or a TFLongformerModel. It is used to instantiate a Longformer model according to the specified arguments, defining the model architecture.

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a LongformerModel. It is used to instantiate an Longformer model according to the specified arguments, defining the model architecture. Instantiating a configuration with the defaults will yield a similar configuration to that of the LongFormer allenai/longformer-base-4096 architecture with a sequence length 4,096.

Configuration objects inherit from PretrainedConfig and can be used to control the model outputs. Read the documentation from PretrainedConfig for more information.

Example:

>>> from transformers import LongformerConfig, LongformerModel

>>> # Initializing a Longformer configuration
>>> configuration = LongformerConfig()

>>> # Initializing a model from the configuration
>>> model = LongformerModel(configuration)

>>> # Accessing the model configuration
>>> configuration = model.config

Parameters

  • vocab_file (str) — Path to the vocabulary file.
  • merges_file (str) — Path to the merges file.
  • errors (str, optional, defaults to "replace") — Paradigm to follow when decoding bytes to UTF-8. See bytes.decode for more information.
  • bos_token (str, optional, defaults to "<s>") — The beginning of sequence token that was used during pretraining. Can be used a sequence classifier token.

    When building a sequence using special tokens, this is not the token that is used for the beginning of sequence. The token used is the cls_token.

  • eos_token (str, optional, defaults to "</s>") — The end of sequence token.

    When building a sequence using special tokens, this is not the token that is used for the end of sequence. The token used is the sep_token.

  • sep_token (str, optional, defaults to "</s>") — The separator token, which is used when building a sequence from multiple sequences, e.g. two sequences for sequence classification or for a text and a question for question answering. It is also used as the last token of a sequence built with special tokens.
  • cls_token (str, optional, defaults to "<s>") — The classifier token which is used when doing sequence classification (classification of the whole sequence instead of per-token classification). It is the first token of the sequence when built with special tokens.
  • unk_token (str, optional, defaults to "<unk>") — The unknown token. A token that is not in the vocabulary cannot be converted to an ID and is set to be this token instead.
  • pad_token (str, optional, defaults to "<pad>") — The token used for padding, for example when batching sequences of different lengths.
  • mask_token (str, optional, defaults to "<mask>") — The token used for masking values. This is the token used when training this model with masked language modeling. This is the token which the model will try to predict.
  • add_prefix_space (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to add an initial space to the input. This allows to treat the leading word just as any other word. (Longformer tokenizer detect beginning of words by the preceding space).

Constructs a Longformer tokenizer, derived from the GPT-2 tokenizer, using byte-level Byte-Pair-Encoding.

This tokenizer has been trained to treat spaces like parts of the tokens (a bit like sentencepiece) so a word will

be encoded differently whether it is at the beginning of the sentence (without space) or not:

>>> from transformers import LongformerTokenizer
>>> tokenizer = LongformerTokenizer.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")
>>> tokenizer("Hello world")['input_ids']
[0, 31414, 232, 328, 2]
>>> tokenizer(" Hello world")['input_ids']
[0, 20920, 232, 2]

You can get around that behavior by passing add_prefix_space=True when instantiating this tokenizer or when you call it on some text, but since the model was not pretrained this way, it might yield a decrease in performance.

When used with is_split_into_words=True, this tokenizer will add a space before each word (even the first one).

This tokenizer inherits from PreTrainedTokenizer which contains most of the main methods. Users should refer to this superclass for more information regarding those methods.

Construct a “fast” Longformer tokenizer (backed by HuggingFace’s tokenizers library), derived from the GPT-2 tokenizer, using byte-level Byte-Pair-Encoding.

This tokenizer has been trained to treat spaces like parts of the tokens (a bit like sentencepiece) so a word will

be encoded differently whether it is at the beginning of the sentence (without space) or not:

>>> from transformers import LongformerTokenizerFast
>>> tokenizer = LongformerTokenizerFast.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")
>>> tokenizer("Hello world")['input_ids']
[0, 31414, 232, 328, 2]

LongformerModel

class transformers.LongformerModel

< >

( config add_pooling_layer = True )

Parameters

  • config (LongformerConfig) — Model configuration class with all the parameters of the model. Initializing with a config file does not load the weights associated with the model, only the configuration. Check out the from_pretrained() method to load the model weights.

The bare Longformer Model outputting raw hidden-states without any specific head on top.

This model inherits from PreTrainedModel. Check the superclass documentation for the generic methods the library implements for all its model (such as downloading or saving, resizing the input embeddings, pruning heads etc.)

This model is also a PyTorch torch.nn.Module subclass. Use it as a regular PyTorch Module and refer to the PyTorch documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

This class copied code from RobertaModel and overwrote standard self-attention with longformer self-attention to provide the ability to process long sequences following the self-attention approach described in Longformer: the Long-Document Transformer by Iz Beltagy, Matthew E. Peters, and Arman Cohan. Longformer self-attention combines a local (sliding window) and global attention to extend to long documents without the O(n^2) increase in memory and compute.

The self-attention module LongformerSelfAttention implemented here supports the combination of local and global attention but it lacks support for autoregressive attention and dilated attention. Autoregressive and dilated attention are more relevant for autoregressive language modeling than finetuning on downstream tasks. Future release will add support for autoregressive attention, but the support for dilated attention requires a custom CUDA kernel to be memory and compute efficient.

Parameters

  • input_ids (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) — Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

    Indices can be obtained using AutoTokenizer. See PreTrainedTokenizer.encode() and PreTrainedTokenizer.call() for details.

    What are input IDs?

  • attention_mask (torch.FloatTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Mask to avoid performing attention on padding token indices. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

    • 1 for tokens that are not masked,
    • 0 for tokens that are masked.

    What are attention masks?

  • global_attention_mask (torch.FloatTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Mask to decide the attention given on each token, local attention or global attention. Tokens with global attention attends to all other tokens, and all other tokens attend to them. This is important for task-specific finetuning because it makes the model more flexible at representing the task. For example, for classification, the token should be given global attention. For QA, all question tokens should also have global attention. Please refer to the Longformer paper for more details. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

    • 0 for local attention (a sliding window attention),
    • 1 for global attention (tokens that attend to all other tokens, and all other tokens attend to them).

TFLongformerModel

class transformers.TFLongformerModel

< >

( *args **kwargs )

Parameters

  • config (LongformerConfig) — Model configuration class with all the parameters of the model. Initializing with a config file does not load the weights associated with the model, only the configuration. Check out the from_pretrained() method to load the model weights.

The bare Longformer Model outputting raw hidden-states without any specific head on top.

This model inherits from TFPreTrainedModel. Check the superclass documentation for the generic methods the library implements for all its model (such as downloading or saving, resizing the input embeddings, pruning heads etc.)

This model is also a tf.keras.Model subclass. Use it as a regular TF 2.0 Keras Model and refer to the TF 2.0 documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

TensorFlow models and layers in transformers accept two formats as input:

  • having all inputs as keyword arguments (like PyTorch models), or
  • having all inputs as a list, tuple or dict in the first positional argument.

The reason the second format is supported is that Keras methods prefer this format when passing inputs to models and layers. Because of this support, when using methods like model.fit() things should “just work” for you - just pass your inputs and labels in any format that model.fit() supports! If, however, you want to use the second format outside of Keras methods like fit() and predict(), such as when creating your own layers or models with the Keras Functional API, there are three possibilities you can use to gather all the input Tensors in the first positional argument:

  • a single Tensor with input_ids only and nothing else: model(input_ids)
  • a list of varying length with one or several input Tensors IN THE ORDER given in the docstring: model([input_ids, attention_mask]) or model([input_ids, attention_mask, token_type_ids])
  • a dictionary with one or several input Tensors associated to the input names given in the docstring: model({"input_ids": input_ids, "token_type_ids": token_type_ids})

Note that when creating models and layers with subclassing then you don’t need to worry about any of this, as you can just pass inputs like you would to any other Python function!

This class copies code from TFRobertaModel and overwrites standard self-attention with longformer self-attention to provide the ability to process long sequences following the self-attention approach described in Longformer: the Long-Document Transformer by Iz Beltagy, Matthew E. Peters, and Arman Cohan. Longformer self-attention combines a local (sliding window) and global attention to extend to long documents without the O(n^2) increase in memory and compute.

The self-attention module TFLongformerSelfAttention implemented here supports the combination of local and global attention but it lacks support for autoregressive attention and dilated attention. Autoregressive and dilated attention are more relevant for autoregressive language modeling than finetuning on downstream tasks. Future release will add support for autoregressive attention, but the support for dilated attention requires a custom CUDA kernel to be memory and compute efficient.

Note that the firstxvalues refer to tokens with fixed positions in the text, but the remainingattention_window + 1values refer to tokens with relative positions: the attention weight of a token to itself is located at indexx + attention_window / 2and theattention_window / 2preceding (succeeding) values are the attention weights to theattention_window / 2preceding (succeeding) tokens. If the attention window contains a token with global attention, the attention weight at the corresponding index is set to 0; the value should be accessed from the firstxattention weights. If a token has global attention, the attention weights to all other tokens inattentionsis set to 0, the values should be accessed fromglobal_attentions`.

    Global attentions weights after the attention softmax, used to compute the weighted average in the self-attention heads. Those are the attention weights from every token with global attention to every token in the sequence.

The TFLongformerForMaskedLM forward method, overrides the __call__ special method.

Although the recipe for forward pass needs to be defined within this function, one should call the Module instance afterwards instead of this since the former takes care of running the pre and post processing steps while the latter silently ignores them.

Example:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, TFLongformerForMaskedLM
>>> import tensorflow as tf

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")
>>> model = TFLongformerForMaskedLM.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")

>>> inputs = tokenizer("The capital of France is <mask>.", return_tensors="tf")
>>> logits = model(**inputs).logits

>>> # retrieve index of <mask>
>>> mask_token_index = tf.where((inputs.input_ids == tokenizer.mask_token_id)[0])
>>> selected_logits = tf.gather_nd(logits[0], indices=mask_token_index)

>>> predicted_token_id = tf.math.argmax(selected_logits, axis=-1)
>>> tokenizer.decode(predicted_token_id)
' Paris'
>>> labels = tokenizer("The capital of France is Paris.", return_tensors="tf")["input_ids"]
>>> # mask labels of non-<mask> tokens
>>> labels = tf.where(inputs.input_ids == tokenizer.mask_token_id, labels, -100)

>>> outputs = model(**inputs, labels=labels)
>>> round(float(outputs.loss), 2)

The TFLongformerForSequenceClassification forward method, overrides the __call__ special method.

Although the recipe for forward pass needs to be defined within this function, one should call the Module instance afterwards instead of this since the former takes care of running the pre and post processing steps while the latter silently ignores them.

>>> import tensorflow as tf

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")
>>> model = TFLongformerForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained("allenai/longformer-base-4096")

>>> logits = model(**inputs).logits

TFLongformerForTokenClassification

class transformers.TFLongformerForTokenClassification

< >

( *args **kwargs )

Parameters

  • config (LongformerConfig) — Model configuration class with all the parameters of the model. Initializing with a config file does not load the weights associated with the model, only the configuration. Check out the from_pretrained() method to load the model weights.

Longformer Model with a token classification head on top (a linear layer on top of the hidden-states output) e.g. for Named-Entity-Recognition (NER) tasks.

This model inherits from TFPreTrainedModel. Check the superclass documentation for the generic methods the library implements for all its model (such as downloading or saving, resizing the input embeddings, pruning heads etc.)

This model is also a tf.keras.Model subclass. Use it as a regular TF 2.0 Keras Model and refer to the TF 2.0 documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

TensorFlow models and layers in transformers accept two formats as input:

  • having all inputs as keyword arguments (like PyTorch models), or
  • having all inputs as a list, tuple or dict in the first positional argument.

The reason the second format is supported is that Keras methods prefer this format when passing inputs to models and layers. Because of this support, when using methods like model.fit() things should “just work” for you - just pass your inputs and labels in any format that model.fit() supports! If, however, you want to use the second format outside of Keras methods like fit() and predict(), such as when creating your own layers or models with the Keras Functional API, there are three possibilities you can use to gather all the input Tensors in the first positional argument:

  • a single Tensor with input_ids only and nothing else: model(input_ids)
  • a list of varying length with one or several input Tensors IN THE ORDER given in the docstring: model([input_ids, attention_mask]) or model([input_ids, attention_mask, token_type_ids])
  • a dictionary with one or several input Tensors associated to the input names given in the docstring: model({"input_ids": input_ids, "token_type_ids": token_type_ids})

Note that when creating models and layers with subclassing then you don’t need to worry about any of this, as you can just pass inputs like you would to any other Python function!

Parameters

  • input_ids (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) — Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

    Indices can be obtained using AutoTokenizer. See PreTrainedTokenizer.call() and PreTrainedTokenizer.encode() for details.

    What are input IDs?

  • attention_mask (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Mask to avoid performing attention on padding token indices. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

    • 1 for tokens that are not masked,
    • 0 for tokens that are masked.

    What are attention masks?

  • head_mask (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (encoder_layers, encoder_attention_heads), optional) — Mask to nullify selected heads of the attention modules. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

    • 1 indicates the head is not masked,
    • 0 indicates the head is masked.
  • global_attention_mask (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Mask to decide the attention given on each token, local attention or global attention. Tokens with global attention attends to all other tokens, and all other tokens attend to them. This is important for task-specific finetuning because it makes the model more flexible at representing the task. For example, for classification, the token should be given global attention. For QA, all question tokens should also have global attention. Please refer to the Longformer paper for more details. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

    • 0 for local attention (a sliding window attention),
    • 1 for global attention (tokens that attend to all other tokens, and all other tokens attend to them).
  • token_type_ids (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Segment token indices to indicate first and second portions of the inputs. Indices are selected in [0, 1]:

    • 0 corresponds to a sentence A token,

    What are position IDs?

  • inputs_embeds (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, hidden_size), optional) — Optionally, instead of passing input_ids you can choose to directly pass an embedded representation. This is useful if you want more control over how to convert input_ids indices into associated vectors than the model’s internal embedding lookup matrix.
  • output_attentions (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return the attentions tensors of all attention layers. See attentions under returned tensors for more detail. This argument can be used only in eager mode, in graph mode the value in the config will be used instead.
  • output_hidden_states (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return the hidden states of all layers. See hidden_states under returned tensors for more detail. This argument can be used only in eager mode, in graph mode the value in the config will be used instead.
  • return_dict (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return a ModelOutput instead of a plain tuple. This argument can be used in eager mode, in graph mode the value will always be set to True.
  • training (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to use the model in training mode (some modules like dropout modules have different behaviors between training and evaluation).
  • labels (tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Labels for computing the token classification loss. Indices should be in [0, ..., config.num_labels - 1].

    Local attentions weights after the attention softmax, used to compute the weighted average in the self-attention heads. Those are the attention weights from every token in the sequence to every token with global attention (first x values) and to every token in the attention window (remaining `attention_window
