It was introduced in the paper [BART: Denoising Sequence-to-Sequence Pre-training for Natural Language Generation, Translation, and Comprehension](https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.13461) by Lewis et al. and first released in [this repository](https://github.com/pytorch/fairseq/tree/master/examples/bart). Disclaimer: The team releasing BART did not write a model card for this model so this model card has been written by the Hugging Face team. ## Model description BART is a transformer encoder-decoder (seq2seq) model with a bidirectional (BERT-like) encoder and an autoregressive (GPT-like) decoder. BART is pre-trained by (1) corrupting text with an arbitrary noising function, and (2) learning a model to reconstruct the original text. BART is particularly effective when fine-tuned for text generation (e.g. summarization, translation) but also works well for comprehension tasks (e.g. text classification, question answering). ## Intended uses & limitations You can use the raw model for text infilling. However, the model is mostly meant to be fine-tuned on a supervised dataset. See the [model hub](https://huggingface.co/models?search=bart) to look for fine-tuned versions on a task that interests you. ### How to use Here is how to use this model in PyTorch: python from transformers import BartTokenizer, BartModel tokenizer = BartTokenizer.from_pretrained('facebook/bart-large') model = BartModel.from_pretrained('facebook/bart-large') inputs = tokenizer("Hello, my dog is cute", return_tensors="pt") outputs = model(**inputs) last_hidden_states = outputs.last_hidden_state  ### BibTeX entry and citation info bibtex @article{DBLP:journals/corr/abs-1910-13461, author = {Mike Lewis and Yinhan Liu and Naman Goyal and Marjan Ghazvininejad and Abdelrahman Mohamed and Omer Levy and Veselin Stoyanov and Luke Zettlemoyer}, title = {{BART:} Denoising Sequence-to-Sequence Pre-training for Natural Language Generation, Translation, and Comprehension}, journal = {CoRR}, volume = {abs/1910.13461}, year = {2019}, url = {http://arxiv.org/abs/1910.13461}, eprinttype = {arXiv}, eprint = {1910.13461}, timestamp = {Thu, 31 Oct 2019 14:02:26 +0100}, biburl = {https://dblp.org/rec/journals/corr/abs-1910-13461.bib}, bibsource = {dblp computer science bibliography, https://dblp.org} }
