How to use this model directly from the 🤗/transformers library:

			
Copy model
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("shoarora/electra-small-owt") model = AutoModelWithLMHead.from_pretrained("shoarora/electra-small-owt")

ELECTRA-small-OWT

This is an unnoficial implementation of an ELECTRA small model, trained on the OpenWebText corpus.

Differences from official ELECTRA models:

  • we use a BertForMaskedLM as the generator and BertForTokenClassification as the discriminator
  • they use an embedding projection layer, but Bert doesn't have one

Pretraining ttask

electra task diagram (figure from Clark et al. 2020)

ELECTRA uses discriminative LM / replaced-token-detection for pretraining. This involves a generator (a Masked LM model) creating examples for a discriminator to classify as original or replaced for each token.

Usage

from transformers import BertForSequenceClassification, BertTokenizer

tokenizer = BertTokenizer.from_pretrained('bert-base-uncased')
electra = BertForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained('shoarora/electra-small-owt')
