# Whisper

## Overview

The Whisper model was proposed in Robust Speech Recognition via Large-Scale Weak Supervision by Alec Radford, Jong Wook Kim, Tao Xu, Greg Brockman, Christine McLeavey, Ilya Sutskever.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

We study the capabilities of speech processing systems trained simply to predict large amounts of transcripts of audio on the internet. When scaled to 680,000 hours of multilingual and multitask supervision, the resulting models generalize well to standard benchmarks and are often competitive with prior fully supervised results but in a zeroshot transfer setting without the need for any finetuning. When compared to humans, the models approach their accuracy and robustness. We are releasing models and inference code to serve as a foundation for further work on robust speech processing.

Tips:

• The model usually performs well without requiring any finetuning.
• The architecture follows a classic encoder-decoder architecture, which means that it relies on the generate() function for inference.
• Inference is currently only implemented for short-form i.e. audio is pre-segmented into <=30s segments. Long-form (including timestamps) will be implemented in a future release.
• One can use WhisperProcessor to prepare audio for the model, and decode the predicted ID’s back into text.

This model was contributed by Arthur Zucker. The Tensorflow version of this model was contributed by amyeroberts. The original code can be found here.

>>> # Initializing a model (with random weights) from the tiny style configuration
>>> model = WhisperModel(configuration)

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

## WhisperModel

### class transformers.WhisperModel

< >

( config: WhisperConfig )

Parameters

• config (WhisperConfig) — 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 Whisper 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.

Parameters

• input_features (torch.FloatTensor of shape (batch_size, feature_size, sequence_length)) — Float values mel features extracted from the raw speech waveform. Raw speech waveform can be obtained by loading a .flac or .wav audio file into an array of type List[float] or a numpy.ndarray, e.g. via the soundfile library (pip install soundfile). To prepare the array into input_features, the WhisperFeatureExtractor should be used for extracting the mel features, padding and conversion into a tensor of type torch.FloatTensor. See call()
• decoder_input_ids (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, target_sequence_length), optional) — Indices of decoder input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

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

What are decoder input IDs?

Whisper uses the decoder_start_token_id as the starting token for decoder_input_ids generation. If past_key_values is used, optionally only the last decoder_input_ids have to be input (see past_key_values).

• decoder_attention_mask (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, target_sequence_length), optional) — Default behavior: generate a tensor that ignores pad tokens in decoder_input_ids. Causal mask will also be used by default.

If you want to change padding behavior, you should read modeling_whisper._prepare_decoder_attention_mask and modify to your needs. See diagram 1 in the BART paper for more information on the default strategy.

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

Used in the cross-attention of the decoder.
• past_key_values (tuple(tuple(torch.FloatTensor)), optional, returned when use_cache=True is passed or when config.use_cache=True) — Tuple of tuple(torch.FloatTensor) of length config.n_layers, with each tuple having 2 tensors of shape (batch_size, num_heads, sequence_length, embed_size_per_head)) and 2 additional tensors of shape (batch_size, num_heads, encoder_sequence_length, embed_size_per_head).

Contains pre-computed hidden-states (key and values in the self-attention blocks and in the cross-attention blocks) that can be used (see past_key_values input) to speed up sequential decoding.

If past_key_values are used, the user can optionally input only the last decoder_input_ids (those that don’t have their past key value states given to this model) of shape (batch_size, 1) instead of all decoder_input_ids of shape (batch_size, sequence_length). decoder_inputs_embeds (torch.FloatTensor of shape (batch_size, target_sequence_length, hidden_size), optional): Optionally, instead of passing decoder_input_ids you can choose to directly pass an embedded representation. If past_key_values is used, optionally only the last decoder_inputs_embeds have to be input (see past_key_values). This is useful if you want more control over how to convert decoder_input_ids indices into associated vectors than the model’s internal embedding lookup matrix.

If decoder_input_ids and decoder_inputs_embeds are both unset, decoder_inputs_embeds takes the value of inputs_embeds.

• use_cache (bool, optional) — If set to True, past_key_values key value states are returned and can be used to speed up decoding (see past_key_values).
• output_attentions (bool, optional) — Whether or not to return the attentions tensors of all attention layers. See attentions under returned tensors for more detail.

The WhisperModel 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:

>>> import torch
>>> from transformers import WhisperFeatureExtractor, WhisperModel

>>> model = WhisperModel.from_pretrained("openai/whisper-base")
>>> feature_extractor = WhisperFeatureExtractor.from_pretrained("openai/whisper-base")
>>> ds = load_dataset("hf-internal-testing/librispeech_asr_dummy", "clean", split="validation")
>>> inputs = feature_extractor(ds[0]["audio"]["array"], return_tensors="pt")
>>> input_features = inputs.input_features
>>> decoder_input_ids = torch.tensor([[1, 1]]) * model.config.decoder_start_token_id
>>> last_hidden_state = model(input_features, decoder_input_ids=decoder_input_ids).last_hidden_state
>>> list(last_hidden_state.shape)

Example:

>>> import torch
>>> from transformers import WhisperProcessor, WhisperForConditionalGeneration

>>> processor = WhisperProcessor.from_pretrained("openai/whisper-tiny.en")
>>> model = WhisperForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained("openai/whisper-tiny.en")

>>> ds = load_dataset("hf-internal-testing/librispeech_asr_dummy", "clean", split="validation")

>>> inputs = processor(ds[0]["audio"]["array"], return_tensors="pt")
>>> input_features = inputs.input_features

## TFWhisperModel

### class transformers.TFWhisperModel

< >

( *args **kwargs )

Parameters

• config (WhisperConfig) — 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 Whisper 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.
