HerBERT

# HerBERT

## Overview

The HerBERT model was proposed in KLEJ: Comprehensive Benchmark for Polish Language Understanding by Piotr Rybak, Robert Mroczkowski, Janusz Tracz, and Ireneusz Gawlik. It is a BERT-based Language Model trained on Polish Corpora using only MLM objective with dynamic masking of whole words.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

In recent years, a series of Transformer-based models unlocked major improvements in general natural language understanding (NLU) tasks. Such a fast pace of research would not be possible without general NLU benchmarks, which allow for a fair comparison of the proposed methods. However, such benchmarks are available only for a handful of languages. To alleviate this issue, we introduce a comprehensive multi-task benchmark for the Polish language understanding, accompanied by an online leaderboard. It consists of a diverse set of tasks, adopted from existing datasets for named entity recognition, question-answering, textual entailment, and others. We also introduce a new sentiment analysis task for the e-commerce domain, named Allegro Reviews (AR). To ensure a common evaluation scheme and promote models that generalize to different NLU tasks, the benchmark includes datasets from varying domains and applications. Additionally, we release HerBERT, a Transformer-based model trained specifically for the Polish language, which has the best average performance and obtains the best results for three out of nine tasks. Finally, we provide an extensive evaluation, including several standard baselines and recently proposed, multilingual Transformer-based models.

Examples of use:

>>> from transformers import HerbertTokenizer, RobertaModel

>>> tokenizer = HerbertTokenizer.from_pretrained("allegro/herbert-klej-cased-tokenizer-v1")
>>> model = RobertaModel.from_pretrained("allegro/herbert-klej-cased-v1")

>>> encoded_input = tokenizer.encode("Kto ma lepszą sztukę, ma lepszy rząd – to jasne.", return_tensors='pt')
>>> outputs = model(encoded_input)

>>> # HerBERT can also be loaded using AutoTokenizer and AutoModel:
>>> import torch
>>> from transformers import AutoModel, AutoTokenizer

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("allegro/herbert-klej-cased-tokenizer-v1")
>>> model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("allegro/herbert-klej-cased-v1")

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

## HerbertTokenizer

class transformers.HerbertTokenizer < >

( vocab_file merges_file tokenizer_file = None cls_token = '<s>' unk_token = '<unk>' pad_token = '<pad>' mask_token = '<mask>' sep_token = '</s>' do_lowercase_and_remove_accent = False **kwargs )

Construct a BPE tokenizer for HerBERT.

Peculiarities:

• uses BERT’s pre-tokenizer: BaseTokenizer splits tokens on spaces, and also on punctuation. Each occurrence of a punctuation character will be treated separately.

• Such pretokenized input is BPE subtokenized

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

## HerbertTokenizerFast

class transformers.HerbertTokenizerFast < >

( vocab_file = None merges_file = None tokenizer_file = None cls_token = '<s>' unk_token = '<unk>' pad_token = '<pad>' mask_token = '<mask>' sep_token = '</s>' **kwargs )

Parameters

• vocab_file (str) — Path to the vocabulary file.
• merges_file (str) — Path to the merges file.

Construct a “Fast” BPE tokenizer for HerBERT (backed by HuggingFace’s tokenizers library).

Peculiarities:

• uses BERT’s pre-tokenizer: BertPreTokenizer splits tokens on spaces, and also on punctuation. Each occurrence of a punctuation character will be treated separately.

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

build_inputs_with_special_tokens < >

( token_ids_0: typing.List[int] token_ids_1: typing.Optional[typing.List[int]] = None ) List[int]

Parameters

• token_ids_0 (List[int]) — List of IDs to which the special tokens will be added.
• token_ids_1 (List[int], optional) — Optional second list of IDs for sequence pairs.

Returns

List[int]

List of input IDs with the appropriate special tokens.

Build model inputs from a sequence or a pair of sequence for sequence classification tasks by concatenating and adding special tokens. An HerBERT, like BERT sequence has the following format:

• single sequence: <s> X </s>
• pair of sequences: <s> A </s> B </s>
create_token_type_ids_from_sequences < >

( token_ids_0: typing.List[int] token_ids_1: typing.Optional[typing.List[int]] = None ) List[int]

Parameters

• token_ids_0 (List[int]) — List of IDs.
• token_ids_1 (List[int], optional) — Optional second list of IDs for sequence pairs.

Returns

List[int]

List of token type IDs according to the given sequence(s).

Create a mask from the two sequences passed to be used in a sequence-pair classification task. HerBERT, like BERT sequence pair mask has the following format:

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
| first sequence    | second sequence |

( token_ids_0: typing.List[int] token_ids_1: typing.Optional[typing.List[int]] = None already_has_special_tokens: bool = False ) List[int]

Parameters

• token_ids_0 (List[int]) — List of IDs.
• token_ids_1 (List[int], optional) — Optional second list of IDs for sequence pairs.
• already_has_special_tokens (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not the token list is already formatted with special tokens for the model.

Returns

List[int]

A list of integers in the range [0, 1]: 1 for a special token, 0 for a sequence token.

Retrieve sequence ids from a token list that has no special tokens added. This method is called when adding special tokens using the tokenizer prepare_for_model method.
