A long context biencoder based on MosaicML's BERT pretrained on 1024 sequence length. This model maps sentences & paragraphs to a 768 dimensional dense vector space and can be used for tasks like clustering or semantic search.

Other details


This model has been trained on 6.4M randomly sampled pairs of sentences/paragraphs from the same training set that Sentence Transformers models use. Details of the training set here.

The training (along with hyperparameters), inference and data loading scripts can all be found in this Github repository.


We ran the model on a few retrieval based benchmarks (CQADupstackEnglishRetrieval, DBPedia, MSMARCO, QuoraRetrieval) and the results are here.
