Utilities for Generation

This page lists all the utility functions used by generate(), greedy_search(), contrastive_search(), sample(), beam_search(), beam_sample(), group_beam_search(), and constrained_beam_search().

Most of those are only useful if you are studying the code of the generate methods in the library.

Generate Outputs

The output of generate() is an instance of a subclass of ModelOutput. This output is a data structure containing all the information returned by generate(), but that can also be used as tuple or dictionary.

Here’s an example:

from transformers import GPT2Tokenizer, GPT2LMHeadModel

tokenizer = GPT2Tokenizer.from_pretrained("gpt2")
model = GPT2LMHeadModel.from_pretrained("gpt2")

inputs = tokenizer("Hello, my dog is cute and ", return_tensors="pt")
generation_output = model.generate(**inputs, return_dict_in_generate=True, output_scores=True)

The generation_output object is a GreedySearchDecoderOnlyOutput, as we can see in the documentation of that class below, it means it has the following attributes:

  • sequences: the generated sequences of tokens
  • scores (optional): the prediction scores of the language modelling head, for each generation step
  • hidden_states (optional): the hidden states of the model, for each generation step
  • attentions (optional): the attention weights of the model, for each generation step

Here we have the scores since we passed along output_scores=True, but we don’t have hidden_states and attentions because we didn’t pass output_hidden_states=True or output_attentions=True.

You can access each attribute as you would usually do, and if that attribute has not been returned by the model, you will get None. Here for instance generation_output.scores are all the generated prediction scores of the language modeling head, and generation_output.attentions is None.

When using our generation_output object as a tuple, it only keeps the attributes that don’t have None values. Here, for instance, it has two elements, loss then logits, so

generation_output[:2]

will return the tuple (generation_output.sequences, generation_output.scores) for instance.

When using our generation_output object as a dictionary, it only keeps the attributes that don’t have None values. Here, for instance, it has two keys that are sequences and scores.

We document here all output types.

LogitsWarper that performs epsilon-sampling, i.e. restricting to tokens with prob >= epsilon. Takes the largest min_tokens_to_keep tokens if no tokens satisfy this constraint. See Truncation Sampling as Language Model Desmoothing for more information.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM, set_seed

>>> set_seed(0)
>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")

>>> # With epsilon sampling, the output gets restricted to high-probability tokens. Note that this is similar to
>>> # Top P sampling, which restricts tokens based on their cumulative probability.

class transformers.EtaLogitsWarper

< >

( epsilon: float filter_value: float = -inf min_tokens_to_keep: int = 1 )

Parameters

  • epsilon (float) — A float value in the range (0, 1). Hyperparameter used to calculate the dynamic cutoff value, eta. The suggested values from the paper ranges from 3e-4 to 4e-3 depending on the size of the model.
  • filter_value (float, optional, defaults to -float("Inf")) — All values that are found to be below the dynamic cutoff value, eta, are set to this float value. This parameter is useful when logits need to be modified for very low probability tokens that should be excluded from generation entirely.
  • min_tokens_to_keep (int, optional, defaults to 1) — Specifies the minimum number of tokens that must be kept for generation, regardless of their probabilities. For example, if min_tokens_to_keep is set to 1, at least one token will always be kept for generation, even if all tokens have probabilities below the cutoff eta.

LogitsWarper that performs eta-sampling, a technique to filter out tokens with probabilities below a dynamic cutoff value, eta, which is calculated based on a combination of the hyperparameter epsilon and the entropy of the token probabilities, i.e. eta := min(epsilon, sqrt(epsilon * e^-entropy(probabilities))). Takes the largest min_tokens_to_keep tokens if no tokens satisfy this constraint. It addresses the issue of poor quality in long samples of text generated by neural language models leading to more coherent and fluent text. See Truncation Sampling as Language Model Desmoothing for more information. Note: do_sample must be set to True for this LogitsWarper to work.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM, set_seed

>>> set_seed(0)
>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")

>>> # With sampling, the output is unexpected -- sometimes too unexpected.
>>> outputs = model.generate(**inputs, do_sample=True)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(outputs, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
A sequence: 1, 2, 0, 2, 2. 2, 2, 2, 2

>>> # With eta sampling, the output gets restricted to high-probability tokens. You can see it as a dynamic form of
>>> # epsilon sampling that adapts its cutoff probability based on the entropy (high entropy = lower cutoff).
>>> # Pro tip: The paper recomends using `eta_cutoff` values between 3e-4 to 4e-3
>>> outputs = model.generate(**inputs, do_sample=True, eta_cutoff=0.1)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(outputs, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
A sequence: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

class transformers.HammingDiversityLogitsProcessor

< >

( diversity_penalty: float num_beams: int num_beam_groups: int )

Parameters

  • diversity_penalty (float) — This value is subtracted from a beam’s score if it generates a token same as any beam from other group at a particular time. Note that diversity_penalty is only effective if group beam search is enabled. The penalty applied to a beam’s score when it generates a token that has already been chosen by another beam within the same group during the same time step. A higher diversity_penalty will enforce greater diversity among the beams, making it less likely for multiple beams to choose the same token. Conversely, a lower penalty will allow beams to more freely choose similar tokens. Adjusting this value can help strike a balance between diversity and natural likelihood.
  • num_beams (int) — Number of beams used for group beam search. Beam search is a method used that maintains beams (or “multiple hypotheses”) at each step, expanding each one and keeping the top-scoring sequences. A higher num_beams will explore more potential sequences. This can increase chances of finding a high-quality output but also increases computational cost.
  • num_beam_groups (int) — Number of groups to divide num_beams into in order to ensure diversity among different groups of beams. Each group of beams will operate independently, selecting tokens without considering the choices of other groups. This division promotes diversity by ensuring that beams within different groups explore different paths. For instance, if num_beams is 6 and num_beam_groups is 2, there will be 2 groups each containing 3 beams. The choice of num_beam_groups should be made considering the desired level of output diversity and the total number of beams. See this paper for more details.

LogitsProcessor that enforces diverse beam search.

Note that this logits processor is only effective for PreTrainedModel.group_beam_search(). See Diverse Beam Search: Decoding Diverse Solutions from Neural Sequence Models for more details.

Diverse beam search can be particularly useful in scenarios where a variety of different outputs is desired, rather than multiple similar sequences. It allows the model to explore different generation paths and provides a broader coverage of possible outputs.

This logits processor can be resource-intensive, especially when using large models or long sequences.

Traditional beam search often generates very similar sequences across different beams. HammingDiversityLogitsProcessor addresses this by penalizing beams that generate tokens already chosen by other beams in the same time step.

How It Works:

  • Grouping Beams: Beams are divided into groups. Each group selects tokens independently of the others.
  • Penalizing Repeated Tokens: If a beam in a group selects a token already chosen by another group in the same step, a penalty is applied to that token’s score.
  • Promoting Diversity: This penalty discourages beams within a group from selecting the same tokens as beams in other groups.

Benefits:

  • Diverse Outputs: Produces a variety of different sequences.
  • Exploration: Allows the model to explore different paths.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM
>>> import torch

>>> # Initialize the model and tokenizer
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("t5-base")
>>> model = AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.from_pretrained("t5-base")

Of the objects that orbit the Sun directly, the largest are the eight planets, with the remainder being smaller objects, such as the five dwarf planets and small Solar System bodies. The Solar System formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant interstellar molecular cloud."
>>> inputs = tokenizer("summarize: " + text, return_tensors="pt")

>>> # Generate diverse summary

class transformers.NoBadWordsLogitsProcessor

< >

( bad_words_ids: typing.List[typing.List[int]] eos_token_id: typing.Union[int, typing.List[int]] )

Parameters

  • bad_words_ids (List[List[int]]) — List of list of token ids that are not allowed to be generated.
  • eos_token_id (Union[int, List[int]]) — The id of the end-of-sequence token. Optionally, use a list to set multiple end-of-sequence tokens.

LogitsProcessor that enforces that specified sequences will never be selected.

In order to get the token ids of the words that should not appear in the generated text, make sure to set add_prefix_space=True when initializing the tokenizer, and use tokenizer(bad_words, add_special_tokens=False).input_ids. The add_prefix_space argument is only supported for some slow tokenizers, as fast tokenizers’ prefixing behaviours come from pre tokenizers. Read more here.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM

>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("gpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("gpt2")
>>> inputs = tokenizer(["In a word, the cake is a"], return_tensors="pt")

class transformers.NoRepeatNGramLogitsProcessor

< >

( ngram_size: int )

Parameters

  • ngram_size (int) — All ngrams of size ngram_size can only occur once.

N-grams are groups of “n” consecutive words, characters, or tokens taken from a sequence of text. Given the sentence: “She runs fast”, the bi-grams (n=2) would be (“she”, “runs”) and (“runs”, “fast”). In text generation, avoiding repetitions of word sequences provides a more diverse output. This LogitsProcessor enforces no repetition of n-grams by setting the scores of banned tokens to negative infinity which eliminates those tokens from consideration when further processing the scores. Fairseq.

Use n-gram penalties with care. For instance, penalizing 2-grams (bigrams) in an article about the city of New York might lead to undesirable outcomes where the city’s name appears only once in the entire text. Reference

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM

>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> inputs = tokenizer(["Today I"], return_tensors="pt")

class transformers.RepetitionPenaltyLogitsProcessor

< >

( penalty: float )

Parameters

  • repetition_penalty (float) — The parameter for repetition penalty. 1.0 means no penalty. See this paper for more details.

LogitsProcessor that prevents the repetition of previous tokens through an exponential penalty. This technique shares some similarities with coverage mechanisms and other aimed at reducing repetition. During the text generation process, the probability distribution for the next token is determined using a formula that incorporates token scores based on their occurrence in the generated sequence. Tokens with higher scores are less likely to be selected. The formula can be seen in the original paper. According to the paper a penalty of around 1.2 yields a good balance between truthful generation and lack of repetition.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM

>>> # Initializing the model and tokenizer for it
>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("distilgpt2")
>>> inputs = tokenizer(["I'm not going to"], return_tensors="pt")

>>> # This shows a normal generate without any specific parameters
>>> summary_ids = model.generate(**inputs)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(summary_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
I'm not going to be able to do that. I'm going to be able to do that

>>> # This generates a penalty for repeated tokens
>>> penalized_ids = model.generate(**inputs, repetition_penalty=1.1)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(penalized_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
I'm not going to be able to do that. I'll just have to go out and play

class transformers.SequenceBiasLogitsProcessor

< >

( sequence_bias: typing.Dict[typing.Tuple[int], float] )

Parameters

  • sequence_bias (Dict[Tuple[int], float]) — Dictionary that maps a sequence of tokens to its bias term. Positive biases increase the odds of the sequence being selected, while negative biases do the opposite. If a sequence has a length of 1, its bias will always be applied. Otherwise, the bias will only be applied if the sequence in question is about to be completed (in the token selection step after this processor is applied).

LogitsProcessor that applies an additive bias on sequences. The bias is applied to the last token of a sequence when the next generated token can complete it. Consequently, to take the most of biasing sequences with more than one token, consider using beam methods (to gracefully work around partially completed sequences that have a negative bias) and applying the bias to their prefixes (to ensure the bias is applied earlier).

In order to get the token ids of the sequences that you want to bias, make sure to set add_prefix_space=True when initializing the tokenizer, and use tokenizer(bad_words, add_special_tokens=False).input_ids. The add_prefix_space argument is only supported for some slow tokenizers, as fast tokenizers’ prefixing behaviours come from pre tokenizers. Read more here.

Examples:

>>> from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM

>>> model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained("gpt2")
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("gpt2")
>>> inputs = tokenizer(["The full name of Donald is Donald"], return_tensors="pt")

>>> summary_ids = model.generate(inputs["input_ids"], max_new_tokens=4)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(summary_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
The full name of Donald is Donald J. Trump Jr

>>> # Now let's control generation through a bias. Please note that the tokenizer is initialized differently!
>>> tokenizer_with_prefix_space = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("gpt2", add_prefix_space=True)


>>> def get_tokens_as_tuple(word):
...     return tuple(tokenizer_with_prefix_space([word], add_special_tokens=False).input_ids[0])


>>> # If we add a negative bias without beam search, it may become "stuck" in a prefix without good continuations
>>> sequence_bias = {get_tokens_as_tuple("Trump"): -10.0}
>>> biased_ids = model.generate(inputs["input_ids"], max_new_tokens=4, sequence_bias=sequence_bias)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(biased_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
The full name of Donald is Donald J. Donald,

>>> biased_ids = model.generate(inputs["input_ids"], max_new_tokens=4, num_beams=4, sequence_bias=sequence_bias)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(biased_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])
The full name of Donald is Donald Rumsfeld,

>>> # We can also add a positive bias to nudge the model towards specific tokens or continuations
>>> sequence_bias = {get_tokens_as_tuple("Donald Duck"): 10.0}
>>> biased_ids = model.generate(inputs["input_ids"], max_new_tokens=4, num_beams=4, sequence_bias=sequence_bias)
>>> print(tokenizer.batch_decode(biased_ids, skip_special_tokens=True)[0])

class transformers.UnbatchedClassifierFreeGuidanceLogitsProcessor

< >

( guidance_scale: float model unconditional_ids: typing.Optional[torch.LongTensor] = None unconditional_attention_mask: typing.Optional[torch.LongTensor] = None use_cache: typing.Optional[bool] = True )

Parameters

  • guidance_scale (float) — The guidance scale for classifier free guidance (CFG). CFG is enabled by setting guidance_scale != 1. Higher guidance scale encourages the model to generate samples that are more closely linked to the input prompt, usually at the expense of poorer quality. A value smaller than 1 has the opposite effect, while making the negative prompt provided with negative_prompt_ids (if any) act as a positive prompt.
  • unconditional_ids (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary for the unconditional branch. If unset, will default to the last token of the prompt.
  • unconditional_attention_mask (torch.LongTensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) — Attention mask for unconditional_ids.
  • model (PreTrainedModel) — The model computing the unconditional scores. Supposedly the same as the one computing the conditional scores. Both models must use the same tokenizer.
  • smooth_factor (float, optional) — The interpolation weight for CFG Rescale. 1 means no rescaling, 0 reduces to the conditional scores without CFG. Turn it lower if the output degenerates.
  • use_cache (bool, optional) — Whether to cache key/values during the negative prompt forward pass.

Logits processor for Classifier-Free Guidance (CFG). The processors computes a weighted average across scores from prompt conditional and prompt unconditional (or negative) logits, parameterized by the guidance_scale. The unconditional scores are computed internally by prompting model with the unconditional_ids branch.
