Cross-lingual version ProphetNet, pretrained on wiki100 xGLUE dataset.
ProphetNet is a new pre-trained language model for sequence-to-sequence learning with a novel self-supervised objective called future n-gram prediction.
ProphetNet is able to predict more future tokens with a n-stream decoder. The original implementation is Fairseq version at github repo.

xProphetNet is also served as the baseline model for xGLUE cross-lingual natural language generation tasks.
For xGLUE corss-lingual NLG tasks, xProphetNet is finetuned with English data, but inference with both English and other zero-shot language data.


This pre-trained model can be fine-tuned on sequence-to-sequence tasks. The model could e.g. be trained on English headline generation as follows:

from transformers import XLMProphetNetForConditionalGeneration, XLMProphetNetTokenizer

model = XLMProphetNetForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained("microsoft/xprophetnet-large-wiki100-cased")
tokenizer = XLMProphetNetTokenizer.from_pretrained("microsoft/xprophetnet-large-wiki100-cased")

input_str = "the us state department said wednesday it had received no formal word from bolivia that it was expelling the us ambassador there but said the charges made against him are `` baseless ."
target_str = "us rejects charges against its ambassador in bolivia"

input_ids = tokenizer(input_str, return_tensors="pt").input_ids
labels = tokenizer(target_str, return_tensors="pt").input_ids

loss = model(input_ids, labels=labels).loss

Note that since this model is a multi-lingual model it can be fine-tuned on all kinds of other languages.
