Zero-Shot Model designed to classify academic search logs in German and English. Developed by students at ETH Zürich.

This model was trained using the bart-large-mnli checkpoint provided by Meta on Huggingface. It was then fine-tuned to suit the needs of this project.

NLI-based Zero-Shot Text Classification

This method is based on Natural Language Inference (NLI), see Yin et al.. The following tutorials are taken from the model card of bart-large-mnli.

With the zero-shot classification pipeline

The model can be loaded with the zero-shot-classification pipeline like so:

from transformers import pipeline
classifier = pipeline("zero-shot-classification",

You can then use this pipeline to classify sequences into any of the class names you specify.

sequence_to_classify = "natural language processing"
candidate_labels = ['Location & Address', 'Employment', 'Organizational', 'Name', 'Service', 'Studies', 'Science']
classifier(sequence_to_classify, candidate_labels)

If more than one candidate label can be correct, pass multi_class=True to calculate each class independently:

candidate_labels = ['Location & Address', 'Employment', 'Organizational', 'Name', 'Service', 'Studies', 'Science']
classifier(sequence_to_classify, candidate_labels, multi_class=True)

With manual PyTorch

# pose sequence as a NLI premise and label as a hypothesis
from transformers import AutoModelForSequenceClassification, AutoTokenizer
nli_model = AutoModelForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained('oigele/Fb_improved_zeroshot/')
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained('facebook/bart-large-mnli')
premise = sequence
hypothesis = f'This is {label}.'
# run through model pre-trained on MNLI
x = tokenizer.encode(premise, hypothesis, return_tensors='pt',
logits = nli_model(x.to(device))[0]
# we throw away "neutral" (dim 1) and take the probability of
# "entailment" (2) as the probability of the label being true 
entail_contradiction_logits = logits[:,[0,2]]
probs = entail_contradiction_logits.softmax(dim=1)
prob_label_is_true = probs[:,1]
