Abstract

While the general idea of self-supervised learning is identical across modalities, the actual algorithms and objectives differ widely because they were developed with a single modality in mind. To get us closer to general self-supervised learning, we present data2vec, a framework that uses the same learning method for either speech, NLP or computer vision. The core idea is to predict latent representations of the full input data based on a masked view of the input in a self-distillation setup using a standard Transformer architecture. Instead of predicting modality-specific targets such as words, visual tokens or units of human speech which are local in nature, data2vec predicts contextualized latent representations that contain information from the entire input. Experiments on the major benchmarks of speech recognition, image classification, and natural language understanding demonstrate a new state of the art or competitive performance to predominant approaches.

# Usage

To transcribe audio files the model can be used as a standalone acoustic model as follows:

 from transformers import Wav2Vec2Processor, Data2VecAudioForCTC
import torch

# tokenize
input_values = processor(ds[0]["audio"]["array"],, return_tensors="pt", padding="longest").input_values  # Batch size 1

# retrieve logits
logits = model(input_values).logits

# take argmax and decode
predicted_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
transcription = processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids)


## Evaluation

This code snippet shows how to evaluate facebook/data2vec-audio-large-960h on LibriSpeech's "clean" and "other" test data.

 from transformers import Wav2Vec2Processor, Data2VecAudioForCTC
import torch
from jiwer import wer

def map_to_pred(batch):
logits = model(input_values.to("cuda")).logits

predicted_ids = torch.argmax(logits, dim=-1)
transcription = processor.batch_decode(predicted_ids)
batch["transcription"] = transcription
return batch

result = librispeech_eval.map(map_to_pred, batched=True, batch_size=1, remove_columns=["audio"])

print("WER:", wer(result["text"], result["transcription"]))


Result (WER):

"clean" "other"
