Model Card for LLaMAntino-2-13b-ITA

Last Update: 22/01/2024

Model description

LLaMAntino-2-13b is a Large Language Model (LLM) that is an italian-adapted LLaMA 2. This model aims to provide Italian NLP researchers with a base model for natural language generation tasks.

The model was trained using QLora and using as training data clean_mc4_it medium. If you are interested in more details regarding the training procedure, you can find the code we used at the following link:

NOTICE: the code has not been released yet, we apologize for the delay, it will be available asap!

How to Get Started with the Model

Below you can find an example of model usage:

from transformers import AutoModelForCausalLM, AutoTokenizer

model_id = "swap-uniba/LLaMAntino-2-13b-hf-ITA"

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_id)
model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(model_id)

prompt = "Scrivi qui un possibile prompt"

input_ids = tokenizer(prompt, return_tensors="pt").input_ids
outputs = model.generate(input_ids=input_ids)

print(tokenizer.batch_decode(outputs.detach().cpu().numpy()[:, input_ids.shape[1]:], skip_special_tokens=True)[0])

If you are facing issues when loading the model, you can try to load it quantized:

model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(model_id, load_in_8bit=True)

Note: The model loading strategy above requires the bitsandbytes and accelerate libraries
