# LayoutLM

## Overview

The LayoutLM model was proposed in the paper LayoutLM: Pre-training of Text and Layout for Document Image Understanding by Yiheng Xu, Minghao Li, Lei Cui, Shaohan Huang, Furu Wei, and Ming Zhou. It’s a simple but effective pretraining method of text and layout for document image understanding and information extraction tasks, such as form understanding and receipt understanding. It obtains state-of-the-art results on several downstream tasks:

• form understanding: the FUNSD dataset (a collection of 199 annotated forms comprising more than 30,000 words).
• receipt understanding: the SROIE dataset (a collection of 626 receipts for training and 347 receipts for testing).
• document image classification: the RVL-CDIP dataset (a collection of 400,000 images belonging to one of 16 classes).

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Pre-training techniques have been verified successfully in a variety of NLP tasks in recent years. Despite the widespread use of pretraining models for NLP applications, they almost exclusively focus on text-level manipulation, while neglecting layout and style information that is vital for document image understanding. In this paper, we propose the LayoutLM to jointly model interactions between text and layout information across scanned document images, which is beneficial for a great number of real-world document image understanding tasks such as information extraction from scanned documents. Furthermore, we also leverage image features to incorporate words’ visual information into LayoutLM. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that text and layout are jointly learned in a single framework for document-level pretraining. It achieves new state-of-the-art results in several downstream tasks, including form understanding (from 70.72 to 79.27), receipt understanding (from 94.02 to 95.24) and document image classification (from 93.07 to 94.42).

Tips:

• In addition to input_ids, forward() also expects the input bbox, which are the bounding boxes (i.e. 2D-positions) of the input tokens. These can be obtained using an external OCR engine such as Google’s Tesseract (there’s a Python wrapper available). Each bounding box should be 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. Note that one first needs to normalize the bounding boxes to be on a 0-1000 scale. To normalize, you can use the following function:
def normalize_bbox(bbox, width, height):
return [
int(1000 * (bbox[0] / width)),
int(1000 * (bbox[1] / height)),
int(1000 * (bbox[2] / width)),
int(1000 * (bbox[3] / height)),
]

Here, width and height correspond to the width and height of the original document in which the token occurs. Those can be obtained using the Python Image Library (PIL) library for example, as follows:

from PIL import Image

# Document can be a png, jpg, etc. PDFs must be converted to images.
image = Image.open(name_of_your_document).convert("RGB")

width, height = image.size

This model was contributed by liminghao1630. The original code can be found here.

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a LayoutLMModel. It is used to instantiate a LayoutLM 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 LayoutLM microsoft/layoutlm-base-uncased architecture.

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

Examples:

>>> from transformers import LayoutLMConfig, LayoutLMModel

>>> # Initializing a LayoutLM configuration
>>> configuration = LayoutLMConfig()

>>> # Initializing a model (with random weights) from the configuration
>>> model = LayoutLMModel(configuration)

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

• 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.

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

The LayoutLMModel 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.

What are input IDs?

• 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.

• 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) — If set to True, the hidden states of all layers are returned. See hidden_states under returned tensors for more detail.

( *args **kwargs )

Parameters

• config (LayoutLMConfig) — 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 LayoutLM Model transformer 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.

TensorFlow models and layers in transformers accept two formats as input:

• having all inputs as keyword arguments (like PyTorch models), or
• having all inputs as a list, tuple or dict in the first positional argument.

The reason the second format is supported is that Keras methods prefer this format when passing inputs to models and layers. Because of this support, when using methods like model.fit() things should “just work” for you - just pass your inputs and labels in any format that model.fit() supports! If, however, you want to use the second format outside of Keras methods like fit() and predict(), such as when creating your own layers or models with the Keras Functional API, there are three possibilities you can use to gather all the input Tensors in the first positional argument:

• a single Tensor with input_ids only and nothing else: model(input_ids)
• a list of varying length with one or several input Tensors IN THE ORDER given in the docstring: model([input_ids, attention_mask]) or model([input_ids, attention_mask, token_type_ids])
• a dictionary with one or several input Tensors associated to the input names given in the docstring: model({"input_ids": input_ids, "token_type_ids": token_type_ids})

Note that when creating models and layers with subclassing then you don’t need to worry about any of this, as you can just pass inputs like you would to any other Python function!

• 1 for tokens that are not masked,
• 0 for tokens that are masked.

• token_type_ids (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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]:

• inputs_embeds (tf.Tensor 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.

The Linear layer weights are trained from the next sentence prediction (classification) objective during pretraining.

This output is usually not a good summary of the semantic content of the input, you’re often better with averaging or pooling the sequence of hidden-states for the whole input sequence.

If, however, you want to use the second format outside of Keras methods like fit() and predict(), such as when creating your own layers or models with the Keras Functional API, there are three possibilities you can use to gather all the input Tensors in the first positional argument:

• a single Tensor with input_ids only and nothing else: model(input_ids)
• a list of varying length with one or several input Tensors IN THE ORDER given in the docstring: model([input_ids, attention_mask]) or model([input_ids, attention_mask, token_type_ids])
• a dictionary with one or several input Tensors associated to the input names given in the docstring: model({"input_ids": input_ids, "token_type_ids": token_type_ids})

Note that when creating models and layers with subclassing then you don’t need to worry about any of this, as you can just pass inputs like you would to any other Python function!

Parameters

• input_ids (Numpy array or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) — Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

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

What are input IDs?

• bbox (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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].
• attention_mask (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (tf.Tensor 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.
• training (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to use the model in training mode (some modules like dropout modules have different behaviors between training and evaluation).
• labels (tf.Tensor or np.ndarray of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Labels for computing the masked language modeling loss. Indices should be in [-100, 0, ..., config.vocab_size] (see input_ids docstring) Tokens with indices set to -100 are ignored (masked), the loss is only computed for the tokens with labels in [0, ..., config.vocab_size]

Returns

transformers.modeling_tf_outputs.TFMaskedLMOutput or tuple(tf.Tensor)

• attentions (tuple(tf.Tensor), optional, returned when output_attentions=True is passed or when config.output_attentions=True) — Tuple of tf.Tensor (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 TFLayoutLMForMaskedLM 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, TFLayoutLMForMaskedLM
>>> import tensorflow as tf

>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("microsoft/layoutlm-base-uncased")

>>> normalized_word_boxes = [637, 773, 693, 782], [698, 773, 733, 782]

• bbox (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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].
• attention_mask (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor 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 (tf.Tensor 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.
• training (bool, optional, defaults to False) — Whether or not to use the model in training mode (some modules like dropout modules have different behaviors between training and evaluation).
• start_positions (tf.Tensor or np.ndarray of shape (batch_size,), optional) — Labels for position (index) of the start of the labelled span for computing the token classification loss. Positions are clamped to the length of the sequence (sequence_length). Position outside of the sequence are not taken into account for computing the loss.
• end_positions (tf.Tensor or np.ndarray of shape (batch_size,), optional) — Labels for position (index) of the end of the labelled span for computing the token classification loss. Positions are clamped to the length of the sequence (sequence_length). Position outside of the sequence are not taken into account for computing the loss.

Returns

transformers.modeling_tf_outputs.TFQuestionAnsweringModelOutput or tuple(tf.Tensor)

A transformers.modeling_tf_outputs.TFQuestionAnsweringModelOutput or a tuple of tf.Tensor (if return_dict=False is passed or when config.return_dict=False) comprising various elements depending on the configuration (LayoutLMConfig) and inputs.

• loss (tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, ), optional, returned when start_positions and end_positions are provided) — Total span extraction loss is the sum of a Cross-Entropy for the start and end positions.

• start_logits (tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) — Span-start scores (before SoftMax).

• end_logits (tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) — Span-end scores (before SoftMax).

• hidden_states (tuple(tf.Tensor), optional, returned when output_hidden_states=True is passed or when config.output_hidden_states=True) — Tuple of tf.Tensor (one for the output of the embeddings + 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 initial embedding outputs.

• attentions (tuple(tf.Tensor), optional, returned when output_attentions=True is passed or when config.output_attentions=True) — Tuple of tf.Tensor (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 TFLayoutLMForQuestionAnswering 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:

>>> import tensorflow as tf
>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, TFLayoutLMForQuestionAnswering

>>> example = dataset[0]
>>> question = "what's his name?"
>>> words = example["words"]
>>> boxes = example["bboxes"]

>>> encoding = tokenizer(
...     question.split(), words, is_split_into_words=True, return_token_type_ids=True, return_tensors="tf"
... )
>>> bbox = []
>>> for i, s, w in zip(encoding.input_ids[0], encoding.sequence_ids(0), encoding.word_ids(0)):
...     if s == 1:
...         bbox.append(boxes[w])
...     elif i == tokenizer.sep_token_id:
...         bbox.append([1000] * 4)
...     else:
...         bbox.append([0] * 4)
>>> encoding["bbox"] = tf.convert_to_tensor([bbox])

>>> word_ids = encoding.word_ids(0)
>>> outputs = model(**encoding)
>>> loss = outputs.loss
>>> start_scores = outputs.start_logits
>>> end_scores = outputs.end_logits
>>> start, end = word_ids[tf.math.argmax(start_scores, -1)[0]], word_ids[tf.math.argmax(end_scores, -1)[0]]
>>> print(" ".join(words[start : end + 1]))
