# CANINE

## Overview

The CANINE model was proposed in CANINE: Pre-training an Efficient Tokenization-Free Encoder for Language Representation by Jonathan H. Clark, Dan Garrette, Iulia Turc, John Wieting. It’s among the first papers that trains a Transformer without using an explicit tokenization step (such as Byte Pair Encoding (BPE), WordPiece or SentencePiece). Instead, the model is trained directly at a Unicode character-level. Training at a character-level inevitably comes with a longer sequence length, which CANINE solves with an efficient downsampling strategy, before applying a deep Transformer encoder.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Pipelined NLP systems have largely been superseded by end-to-end neural modeling, yet nearly all commonly-used models still require an explicit tokenization step. While recent tokenization approaches based on data-derived subword lexicons are less brittle than manually engineered tokenizers, these techniques are not equally suited to all languages, and the use of any fixed vocabulary may limit a model’s ability to adapt. In this paper, we present CANINE, a neural encoder that operates directly on character sequences, without explicit tokenization or vocabulary, and a pre-training strategy that operates either directly on characters or optionally uses subwords as a soft inductive bias. To use its finer-grained input effectively and efficiently, CANINE combines downsampling, which reduces the input sequence length, with a deep transformer stack, which encodes context. CANINE outperforms a comparable mBERT model by 2.8 F1 on TyDi QA, a challenging multilingual benchmark, despite having 28% fewer model parameters.

Tips:

• CANINE uses no less than 3 Transformer encoders internally: 2 “shallow” encoders (which only consist of a single layer) and 1 “deep” encoder (which is a regular BERT encoder). First, a “shallow” encoder is used to contextualize the character embeddings, using local attention. Next, after downsampling, a “deep” encoder is applied. Finally, after upsampling, a “shallow” encoder is used to create the final character embeddings. Details regarding up- and downsampling can be found in the paper.

• CANINE uses a max sequence length of 2048 characters by default. One can use CanineTokenizer to prepare text for the model.

• Classification can be done by placing a linear layer on top of the final hidden state of the special [CLS] token (which has a predefined Unicode code point). For token classification tasks however, the downsampled sequence of tokens needs to be upsampled again to match the length of the original character sequence (which is 2048). The details for this can be found in the paper.

• Models:

• google/canine-c: Pre-trained with autoregressive character loss, 12-layer, 768-hidden, 12-heads, 121M parameters (size ~500 MB).

• google/canine-s: Pre-trained with subword loss, 12-layer, 768-hidden, 12-heads, 121M parameters (size ~500 MB).

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

### Example

CANINE works on raw characters, so it can be used without a tokenizer:

>>> from transformers import CanineModel
>>> import torch

>>> model = CanineModel.from_pretrained("google/canine-c")  # model pre-trained with autoregressive character loss

>>> text = "hello world"
>>> # use Python's built-in ord() function to turn each character into its unicode code point id
>>> input_ids = torch.tensor([[ord(char) for char in text]])

>>> outputs = model(input_ids)  # forward pass
>>> pooled_output = outputs.pooler_output
>>> sequence_output = outputs.last_hidden_state

For batched inference and training, it is however recommended to make use of the tokenizer (to pad/truncate all sequences to the same length):

>>> from transformers import CanineTokenizer, CanineModel

>>> inputs = ["Life is like a box of chocolates.", "You never know what you gonna get."]
>>> encoding = tokenizer(inputs, padding="longest", truncation=True, return_tensors="pt")

>>> outputs = model(**encoding)  # forward pass
>>> pooled_output = outputs.pooler_output
>>> sequence_output = outputs.last_hidden_state

( config )

Parameters

• config (CanineConfig) — 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.

CANINE 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 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.

Parameters

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

Indices can be obtained using CanineTokenizer. 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.

• token_type_ids (torch.LongTensor 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,
• 1 corresponds to a sentence B token.

What are token type IDs?

• position_ids (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Indices of positions of each input sequence tokens in the position embeddings. Selected in the range [0, config.max_position_embeddings - 1].

What are position IDs?

• head_mask (torch.FloatTensor of shape (num_heads,) or (num_layers, num_heads), optional) — Mask to nullify selected heads of the self-attention modules. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

• inputs_embeds (torch.FloatTensor 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.
• 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.
• return_dict (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return a ModelOutput instead of a plain tuple.
• labels (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Labels for computing the token classification loss. Indices should be in [0, ..., config.num_labels - 1].

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 (CanineConfig) 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 CanineForTokenClassification 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 CanineTokenizer, CanineForTokenClassification
>>> import torch

>>> 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]]
>>> predicted_tokens_classes

>>> labels = predicted_token_class_ids
>>> loss = model(**inputs, labels=labels).loss
>>> round(loss.item(), 2)
