Model description

FLOR-6.3B-Instructed is a 6.3B-parameter transformer-based causal language model for Catalan, Spanish, and English, trained on a combined dataset from InstruCat, a Catalan language set of instruction generated automatically from project-aina task orientated dataset, a subset of the Dolly dataset for English, and MENTOR_ES and MENTOR_CA, a Spanish and Catalan sets of instructions commisioned by the BSC Language Technologies Unit. It is the result of a language adaptation technique performed on BLOOM-7.1B, which involves modifying the model's vocabulary and embedding layer, and continuously pre-training the model with 140B tokens in our target languages.

Intended uses and limitations

The FLOR-6.3B-Instructed model is ready-to-use for some downstream tasks. It can perform text-generation tasks because fine-tuned for specific scenarios, such as summarization, Question Answering, creative writing, etc.

How to use

import torch
from transformers import pipeline

pipe = pipeline("text-generation", model="projecte-aina/FLOR-6.3B-Instructed")

instruction = "Quants habitants t茅 Matar贸?"

context = "Matar贸 茅s una ciutat de Catalunya, capital de la comarca del Maresme. Situada al litoral mediterrani, a uns 30 km al nord-est de Barcelona, ha estat tradicionalment un centre administratiu de rellev脿ncia territorial i un pol de dinamisme econ貌mic. Compta amb prop de 130.000 habitants, essent actualment la vuitena poblaci贸 del Principat i la tretzena dels Pa茂sos Catalans. "

# We need to format the prompt and context using ### and \n

def givePrediction(instruction, context, max_new_tokens=50, repetition_penalty=1.2, top_k=50, top_p=0.95, do_sample=True, temperature=0.5)
    text = f"### Instruction\n{{instruction}}\n### Context\n{{context}}\n### Answer\n"
    response = pipe(text.format(instruction=instruction, context=context),temperature=temperature,repetition_penalty=repetition_penalty, max_new_tokens=max_new_tokens,top_k=top_k, top_p=top_p, do_sample=do_sample)[0]["generated_text"]
    answer = response.split("###")[-1][8:-1]
    return answer

answer = givePrediction(instruction, context)

'130 000'

Limitations and bias

At the time of submission, no measures have been taken to estimate the bias and toxicity embedded in the model. However, we are well aware that our models may be biased since the corpora have been collected using crawling techniques on multiple web sources. We intend to conduct research in these areas in the future, and if completed, this model card will be updated.


Instruction Data

The training corpus is composed of 140B tokens gathered from web crawlings and public domain data.
