## RAG

This is a non-finetuned version of the RAG-Token model of the the paper Retrieval-Augmented Generation for Knowledge-Intensive NLP Tasks by Patrick Lewis, Ethan Perez, Aleksandara Piktus et al.

Rag consits of a question encoder, retriever and a generator. The retriever should be a RagRetriever instance. The question encoder can be any model that can be loaded with AutoModel and the generator can be any model that can be loaded with AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.

This model is a non-finetuned RAG-Token model and was created as follows:

from transformers import RagTokenizer, RagRetriever, RagTokenForGeneration, AutoTokenizer

tokenizer = RagTokenizer(question_encoder_tokenizer, generator_tokenizer)
model.config.use_dummy_dataset = True
model.config.index_name = "exact"
retriever = RagRetriever(model.config, question_encoder_tokenizer, generator_tokenizer)

model.save_pretrained("./")
tokenizer.save_pretrained("./")
retriever.save_pretrained("./")

Note that the model is uncased so that all capital input letters are converted to lower-case.

## Usage:

Note: the model uses the dummy retriever as a default. Better results are obtained by using the full retriever, by setting config.index_name="legacy" and config.use_dummy_dataset=False. The model can be fine-tuned as follows:

from transformers import RagTokenizer, RagRetriever, RagTokenForGeneration

model = RagTokenForGeneration.from_pretrained("facebook/rag-token-base", retriever=retriever)

input_dict = tokenizer.prepare_seq2seq_batch("who holds the record in 100m freestyle", "michael phelps", return_tensors="pt")

outputs = model(input_dict["input_ids"], labels=input_dict["labels"])

loss = outputs.loss

# train on loss
