Model description

FlorQARAG is a 6.3B-parameter transformer-based causal language model for Catalan, Spanish, and English, trained on a customized QA dataset from various sources especifically to be used in RAG (Retrieval-Aumented Generation) Applications. The dataset used to fine tune the model is: PureInstructQA

Intended uses and limitations

The FlorQARAG model is ready-to-use for RAG applications optimized for Catalan language. It can perform text-generation Question Answering in the context of RAG applications.

How to use

import torch
from transformers import pipeline

pipe = pipeline("text-generation", model="projecte-aina/FlorQARAG")

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 82,539 QA instruction following examples. See Data Card at PureInstructQA.
