ErnieM

Overview

The ErnieM model was proposed in ERNIE-M: Enhanced Multilingual Representation by Aligning Cross-lingual Semantics with Monolingual Corpora by Xuan Ouyang, Shuohuan Wang, Chao Pang, Yu Sun, Hao Tian, Hua Wu, Haifeng Wang.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Recent studies have demonstrated that pre-trained cross-lingual models achieve impressive performance in downstream cross-lingual tasks. This improvement benefits from learning a large amount of monolingual and parallel corpora. Although it is generally acknowledged that parallel corpora are critical for improving the model performance, existing methods are often constrained by the size of parallel corpora, especially for lowresource languages. In this paper, we propose ERNIE-M, a new training method that encourages the model to align the representation of multiple languages with monolingual corpora, to overcome the constraint that the parallel corpus size places on the model performance. Our key insight is to integrate back-translation into the pre-training process. We generate pseudo-parallel sentence pairs on a monolingual corpus to enable the learning of semantic alignments between different languages, thereby enhancing the semantic modeling of cross-lingual models. Experimental results show that ERNIE-M outperforms existing cross-lingual models and delivers new state-of-the-art results in various cross-lingual downstream tasks.

Tips:

1. Ernie-M is a BERT-like model so it is a stacked Transformer Encoder.
2. Instead of using MaskedLM for pretraining (like BERT) the authors used two novel techniques: Cross-attention Masked Language Modeling and Back-translation Masked Language Modeling. For now these two LMHead objectives are not implemented here.
3. It is a multilingual language model.
4. Next Sentence Prediction was not used in pretraining process.

This model was contributed by Susnato Dhar. The original code can be found here.

Parameters

• vocab_size (int, optional, defaults to 250002) — Vocabulary size of inputs_ids in ErnieMModel. Also is the vocab size of token embedding matrix. Defines the number of different tokens that can be represented by the inputs_ids passed when calling ErnieMModel.
• hidden_size (int, optional, defaults to 768) — Dimensionality of the embedding layer, encoder layers and pooler layer.
• num_hidden_layers (int, optional, defaults to 12) — Number of hidden layers in the Transformer encoder.
• num_attention_heads (int, optional, defaults to 12) — Number of attention heads for each attention layer in the Transformer encoder.
• intermediate_size (int, optional, defaults to 3072) — Dimensionality of the feed-forward (ff) layer in the encoder. Input tensors to feed-forward layers are firstly projected from hidden_size to intermediate_size, and then projected back to hidden_size. Typically intermediate_size is larger than hidden_size.
• hidden_act (str, optional, defaults to "gelu") — The non-linear activation function in the feed-forward layer. "gelu", "relu" and any other torch supported activation functions are supported.
• hidden_dropout_prob (float, optional, defaults to 0.1) — The dropout probability for all fully connected layers in the embeddings and encoder.
• attention_probs_dropout_prob (float, optional, defaults to 0.1) — The dropout probability used in MultiHeadAttention in all encoder layers to drop some attention target.
• act_dropout (float, optional, defaults to 0.0) — This dropout probability is used in ErnieMEncoderLayer after activation.
• max_position_embeddings (int, optional, defaults to 512) — The maximum value of the dimensionality of position encoding, which dictates the maximum supported length of an input sequence.
• layer_norm_eps (float, optional, defaults to 1e-05) — The epsilon used by the layer normalization layers.
• classifier_dropout (float, optional) — The dropout ratio for the classification head.
• initializer_range (float, optional, defaults to 0.02) — The standard deviation of the normal initializer for initializing all weight matrices.
• pad_token_id(int, optional, defaults to 1) — The index of padding token in the token vocabulary.

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a ErnieMModel. It is used to instantiate a Ernie-M 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 Ernie-M susnato/ernie-m-base_pytorch architecture.

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

A normal_initializer initializes weight matrices as normal distributions. See ErnieMPretrainedModel._init_weights() for how weights are initialized in ErnieMModel.

Returns

transformers.modeling_outputs.TokenClassifierOutput or tuple(torch.FloatTensor)

A transformers.modeling_outputs.TokenClassifierOutput or a tuple of torch.FloatTensor (if return_dict=False is passed or when config.return_dict=False) comprising various elements depending on the configuration (ErnieMConfig) and inputs.

• loss (torch.FloatTensor of shape (1,), optional, returned when labels is provided) — Classification loss.

• logits (torch.FloatTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, config.num_labels)) — Classification scores (before SoftMax).

• hidden_states (tuple(torch.FloatTensor), optional, returned when output_hidden_states=True is passed or when config.output_hidden_states=True) — Tuple of torch.FloatTensor (one for the output of the embeddings, if the model has an embedding layer, + one for the output of each layer) of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, hidden_size).

Hidden-states of the model at the output of each layer plus the optional initial embedding outputs.

• attentions (tuple(torch.FloatTensor), optional, returned when output_attentions=True is passed or when config.output_attentions=True) — Tuple of torch.FloatTensor (one for each layer) of shape (batch_size, num_heads, sequence_length, sequence_length).

Attentions weights after the attention softmax, used to compute the weighted average in the self-attention heads.

The ErnieMForTokenClassification 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, ErnieMForTokenClassification
>>> import torch

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("susnato/ernie-m-base_pytorch")
>>> model = ErnieMForTokenClassification.from_pretrained("susnato/ernie-m-base_pytorch")

>>> inputs = tokenizer(
...     "HuggingFace is a company based in Paris and New York", add_special_tokens=False, return_tensors="pt"
... )

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

>>> predicted_token_class_ids = logits.argmax(-1)

>>> # Note that tokens are classified rather then input words which means that
>>> # there might be more predicted token classes than words.
>>> # Multiple token classes might account for the same word
>>> predicted_tokens_classes = [model.config.id2label[t.item()] for t in predicted_token_class_ids[0]]

>>> labels = predicted_token_class_ids
>>> loss = model(**inputs, labels=labels).loss

( config )

Parameters

• config (ErnieMConfig) — 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.

ErnieM Model with a span classification head on top for extractive question-answering tasks like SQuAD (a linear layers on top of the hidden-states output to compute span start logits and span end logits).

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 a PyTorch torch.nn.Module sub-class. Use it as a regular PyTorch Module and refer to the PyTorch documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.
