## bert-base-uncased model fine-tuned on SST-2
This model was created using the [nn_pruning](https://github.com/huggingface/nn_pruning) python library: the linear layers contains **37%** of the original weights.
The model contains **51%** of the original weights **overall** (the embeddings account for a significant part of the model, and they are not pruned by this method).

In terms of perfomance, its **accuracy** is **91.17**.
## Fine-Pruning details
This model was fine-tuned from the HuggingFace [model](https://huggingface.co/bert-base-uncased) checkpoint on task, and distilled from the model [textattack/bert-base-uncased-SST-2](https://huggingface.co/textattack/bert-base-uncased-SST-2).
This model is case-insensitive: it does not make a difference between english and English.
A side-effect of the block pruning method is that some of the attention heads are completely removed: 88 heads were removed on a total of 144 (61.1%).
Here is a detailed view on how the remaining heads are distributed in the network after pruning.

## Example Usage
Install nn_pruning: it contains the optimization script, which just pack the linear layers into smaller ones by removing empty rows/columns.
`pip install nn_pruning`
Then you can use the `transformers library` almost as usual: you just have to call `optimize_model` when the pipeline has loaded.
```python
from transformers import pipeline
from nn_pruning.inference_model_patcher import optimize_model
cls_pipeline = pipeline(
"text-classification",
model="echarlaix/bert-base-uncased-sst2-acc91.1-d37-hybrid",
tokenizer="echarlaix/bert-base-uncased-sst2-acc91.1-d37-hybrid",
)
print(f"Parameters count (includes only head pruning, no feed forward pruning)={int(cls_pipeline.model.num_parameters() / 1E6)}M")
cls_pipeline.model = optimize_model(cls_pipeline.model, "dense")
print(f"Parameters count after optimization={int(cls_pipeline.model.num_parameters() / 1E6)}M")
predictions = cls_pipeline("This restaurant is awesome")
print(predictions)
```
