🇹🇷 Turkish GPT-2 Model

In this repository I release GPT-2 model, that was trained on various texts for Turkish.

The model is meant to be an entry point for fine-tuning on other texts.

Training corpora

I used a Turkish corpora that is taken from oscar-corpus.

It was possible to create byte-level BPE with Tokenizers library of Huggingface.

With the Tokenizers library, I created a 52K byte-level BPE vocab based on the training corpora.

After creating the vocab, I could train the GPT-2 for Turkish on two 2080TI over the complete training corpus (five epochs).

Model weights

Both PyTorch and Tensorflow compatible weights are available.

Using the model

The model itself can be used in this way:

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelWithLMHead
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("redrussianarmy/gpt2-turkish-cased")
model = AutoModelWithLMHead.from_pretrained("redrussianarmy/gpt2-turkish-cased")

Here's an example that shows how to use the great Transformers Pipelines for generating text:

from transformers import pipeline
pipe = pipeline('text-generation', model="redrussianarmy/gpt2-turkish-cased",
                 tokenizer="redrussianarmy/gpt2-turkish-cased", config={'max_length':800})   
text = pipe("Akşamüstü yolda ilerlerken, ")[0]["generated_text"]

How to clone the model repo?

git lfs install
git clone https://huggingface.co/redrussianarmy/gpt2-turkish-cased
