# LiLT

## Overview

The LiLT model was proposed in LiLT: A Simple yet Effective Language-Independent Layout Transformer for Structured Document Understanding by Jiapeng Wang, Lianwen Jin, Kai Ding. LiLT allows to combine any pre-trained RoBERTa text encoder with a lightweight Layout Transformer, to enable LayoutLM-like document understanding for many languages.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Structured document understanding has attracted considerable attention and made significant progress recently, owing to its crucial role in intelligent document processing. However, most existing related models can only deal with the document data of specific language(s) (typically English) included in the pre-training collection, which is extremely limited. To address this issue, we propose a simple yet effective Language-independent Layout Transformer (LiLT) for structured document understanding. LiLT can be pre-trained on the structured documents of a single language and then directly fine-tuned on other languages with the corresponding off-the-shelf monolingual/multilingual pre-trained textual models. Experimental results on eight languages have shown that LiLT can achieve competitive or even superior performance on diverse widely-used downstream benchmarks, which enables language-independent benefit from the pre-training of document layout structure.

Tips:

• To combine the Language-Independent Layout Transformer with a new RoBERTa checkpoint from the hub, refer to this guide. The script will result in config.json and pytorch_model.bin files being stored locally. After doing this, one can do the following (assuming you’re logged in with your HuggingFace account):
from transformers import LiltModel

model = LiltModel.from_pretrained("path_to_your_files")
model.push_to_hub("name_of_repo_on_the_hub")
LiLT architecture. Taken from the original paper.

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

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a LiltModel. It is used to instantiate a LiLT 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 LiLT SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base architecture. Configuration objects inherit from PretrainedConfig and can be used to control the model outputs. Read the documentation from PretrainedConfig for more information.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import LiltConfig, LiltModel

>>> # Initializing a LiLT SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base style configuration
>>> configuration = LiltConfig()
>>> # Randomly initializing a model from the SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base style configuration
>>> model = LiltModel(configuration)
>>> # Accessing the model configuration
>>> configuration = model.config

## LiltModel

### class transformers.LiltModel

< >

( config add_pooling_layer = True )

Parameters

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.)

• bbox (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, 4), optional) — Bounding boxes of each input sequence tokens. Selected in the range [0, config.max_2d_position_embeddings-1]. Each bounding box should be a normalized version in (x0, y0, x1, y1) format, where (x0, y0) corresponds to the position of the upper left corner in the bounding box, and (x1, y1) represents the position of the lower right corner. See Overview for normalization.
• 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]:

• 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_hidden_states (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return the hidden states of all layers. See hidden_states under returned tensors for more detail.

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

The LiltModel 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.

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base")
>>> model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base")

• 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 LiltForQuestionAnswering 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.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForQuestionAnswering

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("SCUT-DLVCLab/lilt-roberta-en-base")

>>> predicted_answer = tokenizer.decode(predict_answer_tokens)
