Greek (el) GPT2 model - small

A new version (recommended) trained on 5x more data is available at: https://huggingface.co/lighteternal/gpt2-finetuned-greek

By the Hellenic Army Academy (SSE) and the Technical University of Crete (TUC)

  • language: el
  • licence: apache-2.0
  • dataset: ~5GB of Greek corpora
  • model: GPT2 (12-layer, 768-hidden, 12-heads, 117M parameters. OpenAI GPT-2 English model, finetuned for the Greek language)
  • pre-processing: tokenization + BPE segmentation

Model description

A text generation (autoregressive) model, using Huggingface transformers and fastai based on the English GPT-2(small).

Finetuned with gradual layer unfreezing. This is a more efficient and sustainable alternative compared to training from scratch, especially for low-resource languages.

Based on the work of Thomas Dehaene (ML6) for the creation of a Dutch GPT2: https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1Y31tjMkB8TqKKFlZ5OJ9fcMp3p8suvs4?usp=sharing

How to use

from transformers import pipeline

model = "lighteternal/gpt2-finetuned-greek-small"

generator = pipeline(
    'text-generation',
    device=0,
    model=f'{model}',
    tokenizer=f'{model}')
    
text = "Μια φορά κι έναν καιρό"

print("\\\\
".join([x.get("generated_text") for x in generator(
    text,
    max_length=len(text.split(" "))+15,
    do_sample=True,
    top_k=50,
    repetition_penalty = 1.2,
    add_special_tokens=False,
    num_return_sequences=5,
    temperature=0.95,
    top_p=0.95)]))
    

Training data

We used a small (~5GB) sample from a consolidated Greek corpus based on CC100, Wikimatrix, Tatoeba, Books, SETIMES and GlobalVoices. A bigger corpus is expected to provide better results (T0D0).
