W2v-BERT 2.0 speech encoder

We are open-sourcing our Conformer-based W2v-BERT 2.0 speech encoder as described in Section 3.2.1 of the paper, which is at the core of our Seamless models.

This model was pre-trained on 4.5M hours of unlabeled audio data covering more than 143 languages. It requires finetuning to be used for downstream tasks such as Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), or Audio Classification.

This model and its training are supported by 🤗 Transformers, more on it in the docs.

🤗 Transformers usage

This is a bare checkpoint without any modeling head, and thus requires finetuning to be used for downstream tasks such as ASR. You can however use it to extract audio embeddings from the top layer with this code snippet:

from transformers import AutoFeatureExtractor, Wav2Vec2BertModel
import torch
from datasets import load_dataset

dataset = load_dataset("hf-internal-testing/librispeech_asr_demo", "clean", split="validation")
dataset = dataset.sort("id")
sampling_rate = dataset.features["audio"].sampling_rate

processor = AutoProcessor.from_pretrained("facebook/w2v-bert-2.0")
model = Wav2Vec2BertModel.from_pretrained("facebook/w2v-bert-2.0")

# audio file is decoded on the fly
inputs = processor(dataset[0]["audio"]["array"], sampling_rate=sampling_rate, return_tensors="pt")
with torch.no_grad():
    outputs = model(**inputs)

Seamless Communication usage

This model can be used in Seamless Communication, where it was released.

Here's how to make a forward pass through the voice encoder, after having completed the installation steps:

import torch

from fairseq2.data.audio import AudioDecoder, WaveformToFbankConverter
from fairseq2.memory import MemoryBlock
from fairseq2.nn.padding import get_seqs_and_padding_mask
from pathlib import Path
from seamless_communication.models.conformer_shaw import load_conformer_shaw_model

audio_wav_path, device, dtype = ...
audio_decoder = AudioDecoder(dtype=torch.float32, device=device)
fbank_converter = WaveformToFbankConverter(
collater = Collater(pad_value=1)

model = load_conformer_shaw_model("conformer_shaw", device=device, dtype=dtype)

with Path(audio_wav_path).open("rb") as fb:
    block = MemoryBlock(fb.read())

decoded_audio = audio_decoder(block)
src = collater(fbank_converter(decoded_audio))["fbank"]
seqs, padding_mask = get_seqs_and_padding_mask(src)

with torch.inference_mode():
  seqs, padding_mask = model.encoder_frontend(seqs, padding_mask)
  seqs, padding_mask = model.encoder(seqs, padding_mask)
