transformers-ud-japanese-electra-ginza (sudachitra-wordpiece, mC4 Japanese) - MIYAGINO

This is an ELECTRA model pretrained on approximately 200M Japanese sentences.

The input text is tokenized by SudachiTra with the WordPiece subword tokenizer. See tokenizer_config.json for the setting details.

How to use

from transformers import ElectraModel
from sudachitra import ElectraSudachipyTokenizer
model = ElectraModel.from_pretrained("megagonlabs/transformers-ud-japanese-electra-base-discriminator")
tokenizer = ElectraSudachipyTokenizer.from_pretrained("megagonlabs/transformers-ud-japanese-electra-base-discriminator")
model(**tokenizer("まさにオールマイティーな商品だ。", return_tensors="pt")).last_hidden_state
tensor([[[-0.0498, -0.0285,  0.1042,  ...,  0.0062, -0.1253,  0.0338],
         [-0.0686,  0.0071,  0.0087,  ..., -0.0210, -0.1042, -0.0320],
         [-0.0636,  0.1465,  0.0263,  ...,  0.0309, -0.1841,  0.0182],
         [-0.1500, -0.0368, -0.0816,  ..., -0.0303, -0.1653,  0.0650],
         [-0.0457,  0.0770, -0.0183,  ..., -0.0108, -0.1903,  0.0694],
         [-0.0981, -0.0387,  0.1009,  ..., -0.0150, -0.0702,  0.0455]]],

Model architecture

The model architecture is the same as the original ELECTRA base model; 12 layers, 768 dimensions of hidden states, and 12 attention heads.

Training data and libraries

This model is trained on the Japanese texts extracted from the mC4 Common Crawl's multilingual web crawl corpus. We used the Sudachi to split texts into sentences, and also applied a simple rule-based filter to remove nonlinguistic segments of mC4 multilingual corpus. The extracted texts contains over 600M sentences in total, and we used approximately 200M sentences for pretraining.

We used NVIDIA's TensorFlow2-based ELECTRA implementation for pretraining. The time required for the pretrainig was about 110 hours using GCP DGX A100 8gpu instance with enabling Automatic Mixed Precision.
