# DeBERTa¶

## Overview¶

The DeBERTa model was proposed in DeBERTa: Decoding-enhanced BERT with Disentangled Attention by Pengcheng He, Xiaodong Liu, Jianfeng Gao, Weizhu Chen It is based on Google’s BERT model released in 2018 and Facebook’s RoBERTa model released in 2019.

It builds on RoBERTa with disentangled attention and enhanced mask decoder training with half of the data used in RoBERTa.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

Recent progress in pre-trained neural language models has significantly improved the performance of many natural language processing (NLP) tasks. In this paper we propose a new model architecture DeBERTa (Decoding-enhanced BERT with disentangled attention) that improves the BERT and RoBERTa models using two novel techniques. The first is the disentangled attention mechanism, where each word is represented using two vectors that encode its content and position, respectively, and the attention weights among words are computed using disentangled matrices on their contents and relative positions. Second, an enhanced mask decoder is used to replace the output softmax layer to predict the masked tokens for model pretraining. We show that these two techniques significantly improve the efficiency of model pretraining and performance of downstream tasks. Compared to RoBERTa-Large, a DeBERTa model trained on half of the training data performs consistently better on a wide range of NLP tasks, achieving improvements on MNLI by +0.9% (90.2% vs. 91.1%), on SQuAD v2.0 by +2.3% (88.4% vs. 90.7%) and RACE by +3.6% (83.2% vs. 86.8%). The DeBERTa code and pre-trained models will be made publicly available at https://github.com/microsoft/DeBERTa.

This model was contributed by DeBERTa. This model TF 2.0 implementation was contributed by kamalkraj . The original code can be found here.

With those two improvements, it out perform BERT/RoBERTa on a majority of tasks with 80GB pretraining data.

This model is also a PyTorch torch.nn.Module subclass. Use it as a regular PyTorch Module and refer to the PyTorch documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

class transformers.DebertaForQuestionAnswering(config)[source]

DeBERTa Model with a span classification head on top for extractive question-answering tasks like SQuAD (a linear layers on top of the hidden-states output to compute span start logits and span end logits).

The DeBERTa model was proposed in DeBERTa: Decoding-enhanced BERT with Disentangled Attention by Pengcheng He, Xiaodong Liu, Jianfeng Gao, Weizhu Chen. It’s build on top of BERT/RoBERTa with two improvements, i.e. disentangled attention and enhanced mask decoder. With those two improvements, it out perform BERT/RoBERTa on a majority of tasks with 80GB pretraining data.

This model is also a PyTorch torch.nn.Module subclass. Use it as a regular PyTorch Module and refer to the PyTorch documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

The DeBERTa model was proposed in DeBERTa: Decoding-enhanced BERT with Disentangled Attention by Pengcheng He, Xiaodong Liu, Jianfeng Gao, Weizhu Chen. It’s build on top of BERT/RoBERTa with two improvements, i.e. disentangled attention and enhanced mask decoder. With those two improvements, it out perform BERT/RoBERTa on a majority of tasks with 80GB pretraining data.

This model is also a tf.keras.Model subclass. Use it as a regular TF 2.0 Keras Model and refer to the TF 2.0 documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

## TFDebertaForTokenClassification¶

class transformers.TFDebertaForTokenClassification(*args, **kwargs)[source]

DeBERTa Model with a token classification head on top (a linear layer on top of the hidden-states output) e.g. for Named-Entity-Recognition (NER) tasks.

The DeBERTa model was proposed in DeBERTa: Decoding-enhanced BERT with Disentangled Attention by Pengcheng He, Xiaodong Liu, Jianfeng Gao, Weizhu Chen. It’s build on top of BERT/RoBERTa with two improvements, i.e. disentangled attention and enhanced mask decoder. With those two improvements, it out perform BERT/RoBERTa on a majority of tasks with 80GB pretraining data.

This model is also a tf.keras.Model subclass. Use it as a regular TF 2.0 Keras Model and refer to the TF 2.0 documentation for all matter related to general usage and behavior.

Note

TF 2.0 models accepts two formats as inputs:

• having all inputs as keyword arguments (like PyTorch models), or

• having all inputs as a list, tuple or dict in the first positional arguments.

This second option is useful when using tf.keras.Model.fit() method which currently requires having all the tensors in the first argument of the model call function: model(inputs).

If you choose this second option, there are three possibilities you can use to gather all the input Tensors in the first positional argument :

• a single Tensor with input_ids only and nothing else: model(inputs_ids)

• a list of varying length with one or several input Tensors IN THE ORDER given in the docstring: model([input_ids, attention_mask]) or model([input_ids, attention_mask, token_type_ids])

• a dictionary with one or several input Tensors associated to the input names given in the docstring: model({"input_ids": input_ids, "token_type_ids": token_type_ids})

Parameters

config (DebertaConfig) – Model configuration class with all the parameters of the model. Initializing with a config file does not load the weights associated with the model, only the configuration. Check out the from_pretrained() method to load the model weights.

call(input_ids: Optional[Union[List[tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor], List[numpy.ndarray], List[tensorflow.python.keras.engine.keras_tensor.KerasTensor], Dict[str, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor], Dict[str, numpy.ndarray], Dict[str, tensorflow.python.keras.engine.keras_tensor.KerasTensor], tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor, numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.keras.engine.keras_tensor.KerasTensor]] = None, attention_mask: Optional[Union[numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]] = None, token_type_ids: Optional[Union[numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]] = None, position_ids: Optional[Union[numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]] = None, inputs_embeds: Optional[Union[numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]] = None, output_attentions: Optional[bool] = None, output_hidden_states: Optional[bool] = None, return_dict: Optional[bool] = None, labels: Optional[Union[numpy.ndarray, tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]] = None, training: Optional[bool] = False, **kwargs) → Union[transformers.modeling_tf_outputs.TFTokenClassifierOutput, Tuple[tensorflow.python.framework.ops.Tensor]][source]

The TFDebertaForTokenClassification forward method, overrides the __call__() special method.

Note

Although the recipe for forward pass needs to be defined within this function, one should call the Module instance afterwards instead of this since the former takes care of running the pre and post processing steps while the latter silently ignores them.

Parameters
• input_ids (np.ndarray, tf.Tensor, List[tf.Tensor] Dict[str, tf.Tensor] or Dict[str, np.ndarray] and each example must have the shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) –

Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

Indices can be obtained using transformers.DebertaTokenizer. See transformers.PreTrainedTokenizer.encode() and transformers.PreTrainedTokenizer.__call__() for details.

What are input IDs?

• attention_mask (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) –

Mask to avoid performing attention on padding token indices. Mask values selected in [0, 1]:

• 1 for tokens that are not masked,

• 0 for tokens that are masked.

• token_type_ids (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional) –

Segment token indices to indicate first and second portions of the inputs. Indices are selected in [0, 1]:

What are position IDs?

• inputs_embeds (np.ndarray or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, hidden_size), optional) – Optionally, instead of passing input_ids you can choose to directly pass an embedded representation. This is useful if you want more control over how to convert input_ids indices into associated vectors than the model’s internal embedding lookup matrix.
