OpenAI GPT2

Overview

OpenAI GPT-2 model was proposed in `Language Models are Unsupervised Multitask Learners`_ by Alec Radford*, Jeffrey Wu*, Rewon Child, David Luan, Dario Amodei** and Ilya Sutskever**. It’s a causal (unidirectional) transformer pre-trained using language modeling on a very large corpus of ~40 GB of text data.

The abstract from the paper is the following:

GPT-2 is a large transformer-based language model with 1.5 billion parameters, trained on a dataset[1] of 8 million web pages. GPT-2 is trained with a simple objective: predict the next word, given all of the previous words within some text. The diversity of the dataset causes this simple goal to contain naturally occurring demonstrations of many tasks across diverse domains. GPT-2 is a direct scale-up of GPT, with more than 10X the parameters and trained on more than 10X the amount of data.

Tips:

  • GPT-2 is a model with absolute position embeddings so it’s usually advised to pad the inputs on the right rather than the left.

  • GPT-2 was trained with a causal language modeling (CLM) objective and is therefore powerful at predicting the next token in a sequence. Leveraging this feature allows GPT-2 to generate syntactically coherent text as it can be observed in the run_generation.py example script.

  • The PyTorch models can take the past as input, which is the previously computed key/value attention pairs. Using this past value prevents the model from re-computing pre-computed values in the context of text generation. See reusing the past in generative models for more information on the usage of this argument.

Write With Transformer is a webapp created and hosted by Hugging Face showcasing the generative capabilities of several models. GPT-2 is one of them and is available in five different sizes: small, medium, large, xl and a distilled version of the small checkpoint: distilgpt-2.

GPT2Config

class transformers.GPT2Config(vocab_size=50257, n_positions=1024, n_ctx=1024, n_embd=768, n_layer=12, n_head=12, resid_pdrop=0.1, embd_pdrop=0.1, attn_pdrop=0.1, layer_norm_epsilon=1e-05, initializer_range=0.02, summary_type='cls_index', summary_use_proj=True, summary_activation=None, summary_proj_to_labels=True, summary_first_dropout=0.1, **kwargs)[source]

This is the configuration class to store the configuration of a GPT2Model. It is used to instantiate an GPT-2 model according to the specified arguments, defining the model architecture. Instantiating a configuration with the defaults will yield a similar configuration to that of the GPT-2 small architecture.

Configuration objects inherit from PretrainedConfig and can be used to control the model outputs. Read the documentation from PretrainedConfig for more information.

Parameters

  • n_positions (int, optional, defaults to 1024) – The maximum sequence length that this model might ever be used with. Typically set this to something large just in case (e.g., 512 or 1024 or 2048).

  • n_ctx (int, optional, defaults to 1024) – Dimensionality of the causal mask (usually same as n_positions).

    Argument used when doing sequence summary. Used in for the multiple choice head in GPT2DoubleHeadsModel. Is one of the following options:

    • ’last’ => take the last token hidden state (like XLNet)

    • ’first’ => take the first token hidden state (like Bert)

    • ’mean’ => take the mean of all tokens hidden states

    • ’cls_index’ => supply a Tensor of classification token position (GPT/GPT-2)

    • ’attn’ => Not implemented now, use multi-head attention

  • summary_use_proj (boolean, optional, defaults to True) – Argument used when doing sequence summary. Used in for the multiple choice head in GPT2DoubleHeadsModel. Add a projection after the vector extraction

  • summary_activation (string or None, optional, defaults to None) – Argument used when doing sequence summary. Used in for the multiple choice head in GPT2DoubleHeadsModel. ‘tanh’ => add a tanh activation to the output, Other => no activation.

TFGPT2Model

class transformers.TFGPT2Model(config, *inputs, **kwargs)[source]

The bare GPT2 Model transformer outputing raw hidden-states without any specific head on top.

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 (GPT2Config) – 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(inputs, **kwargs)[source]

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.

TFGPT2LMHeadModel

class transformers.TFGPT2LMHeadModel(config, *inputs, **kwargs)[source]

The GPT2 Model transformer with a language modeling head on top (linear layer with weights tied to the input embeddings).

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 (GPT2Config) – 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(inputs, **kwargs)[source]

The TFGPT2LMHeadModel 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 (Numpy array or tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length)) –

    Indices of input sequence tokens in the vocabulary.

    Indices can be obtained using transformers.GPT2Tokenizer. See transformers.PreTrainedTokenizer.encode() and transformers.PreTrainedTokenizer.encode_plus() for details.

    What are input IDs?

  • past (List[tf.Tensor] of length config.n_layers) – Contains pre-computed hidden-states (key and values in the attention blocks) as computed by the model (see past output below). Can be used to speed up sequential decoding. The token ids which have their past given to this model should not be passed as input ids as they have already been computed.

  • attention_mask (tf.Tensor or Numpy array of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional, defaults to None) –

    Mask to avoid performing attention on padding token indices. Mask values selected in [0, 1]: 1 for tokens that are NOT MASKED, 0 for MASKED tokens.

    What are attention masks?

  • token_type_ids (tf.Tensor or Numpy array of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional, defaults to None) –

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

    What are token type IDs?

  • position_ids (tf.Tensor or Numpy array of shape (batch_size, sequence_length), optional, defaults to None) –

    Indices of positions of each input sequence tokens in the position embeddings. Selected in the range [0, config.max_position_embeddings - 1].

    What are position IDs?

  • head_mask (tf.Tensor or Numpy array of shape (num_heads,) or (num_layers, num_heads), optional, defaults to None) – Mask to nullify selected heads of the self-attention modules. Mask values selected in [0, 1]: 1 indicates the head is not masked, 0 indicates the head is masked.

  • input_embeds (tf.Tensor or Numpy array of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, hidden_size), optional, defaults to None) – 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.

  • training (boolean, optional, defaults to False) – Whether to activate dropout modules (if set to True) during training or to de-activate them (if set to False) for evaluation.

Returns

prediction_scores (tf.Tensor of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, config.vocab_size)):

Prediction scores of the language modeling head (scores for each vocabulary token before SoftMax).

past (List[tf.Tensor] of length config.n_layers with each tensor of shape (2, batch_size, num_heads, sequence_length, embed_size_per_head)):

Contains pre-computed hidden-states (key and values in the attention blocks). Can be used (see past input) to speed up sequential decoding. The token ids which have their past given to this model should not be passed as input ids as they have already been computed.

hidden_states (tuple(tf.Tensor), optional, returned when config.output_hidden_states=True):

Tuple of tf.Tensor (one for the output of the embeddings + one for the output of each layer) of shape (batch_size, sequence_length, hidden_size).

Hidden-states of the model at the output of each layer plus the initial embedding outputs.

attentions (tuple(tf.Tensor), optional, returned when config.output_attentions=True):

Tuple of tf.Tensor (one for each layer) of shape (batch_size, num_heads, sequence_length, sequence_length).

Attentions weights after the attention softmax, used to compute the weighted average in the self-attention heads.

Return type

tuple(tf.Tensor) comprising various elements depending on the configuration (GPT2Config) and inputs

import tensorflow as tf
from transformers import GPT2Tokenizer, TFGPT2LMHeadModel

tokenizer = GPT2Tokenizer.from_pretrained('gpt2')
