FlauBERT-Oral models: Using ASR-Generated Text for Spoken Language Modeling

FlauBERT-Oral are French BERT models trained on a very large amount of automatically transcribed speech from 350,000 hours of diverse French TV shows. They were trained with the FlauBERT software using the same parameters as the flaubert-base-uncased model (12 layers, 12 attention heads, 768 dims, 137M parameters, uncased).

Available FlauBERT-Oral models

  • flaubert-oral-asr : trained from scratch on ASR data, keeping the BPE tokenizer and vocabulary of flaubert-base-uncased
  • flaubert-oral-asr_nb : trained from scratch on ASR data, BPE tokenizer is also trained on the same corpus
  • flaubert-oral-mixed : trained from scratch on a mixed corpus of ASR and text data, BPE tokenizer is also trained on the same corpus
  • flaubert-oral-ft : fine-tuning of flaubert-base-uncased for a few epochs on ASR data

Usage for sequence classification

flaubert_tokenizer = FlaubertTokenizer.from_pretrained("nherve/flaubert-oral-asr")
flaubert_classif = FlaubertForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained("nherve/flaubert-oral-asr", num_labels=14)
flaubert_classif.sequence_summary.summary_type = 'mean'
# Then, train your model
