How to use this model directly from the 🤗/transformers library:

Copy to clipboard
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelWithLMHead tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("gsarti/scibert-nli") model = AutoModelWithLMHead.from_pretrained("gsarti/scibert-nli")


This is the model SciBERT [1] fine-tuned on the SNLI and the MultiNLI datasets using the sentence-transformers library to produce universal sentence embeddings [2].

The model uses the original scivocab wordpiece vocabulary and was trained using the average pooling strategy and a softmax loss.

Base model: allenai/scibert-scivocab-cased from HuggingFace's AutoModel.

Training time: ~4 hours on the NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU provided in Kaggle Notebooks.


Parameter Value
Batch size 64
Training steps 20000
Warmup steps 1450
Lowercasing True
Max. Seq. Length 128

Performances: The performance was evaluated on the test portion of the STS dataset using Spearman rank correlation and compared to the performances of a general BERT base model obtained with the same procedure to verify their similarity.

Model Score
scibert-nli (this) 74.50
bert-base-nli-mean-tokens[3] 77.12
