Chinese RoBERTa-Base Model for NER

Model description

The model is used for named entity recognition. You can download the model either from the UER-py Modelzoo page (in UER-py format), or via HuggingFace from the link roberta-base-finetuned-cluener2020-chinese.

How to use

You can use this model directly with a pipeline for token classification :

>>> from transformers import AutoModelForTokenClassification,AutoTokenizer,pipeline
>>> model = AutoModelForTokenClassification.from_pretrained('uer/roberta-base-finetuned-cluener2020-chinese')
>>> tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained('uer/roberta-base-finetuned-cluener2020-chinese')
>>> ner = pipeline('ner', model=model, tokenizer=tokenizer)
>>> ner("江苏警方通报特斯拉冲进店铺")

       {'word': '苏', 'score': 0.6319217681884766, 'entity': 'I-address', 'index': 2, 'start': 1, 'end': 2}, 
       {'word': '特', 'score': 0.5912262797355652, 'entity': 'B-company', 'index': 7, 'start': 6, 'end': 7},
       {'word': '斯', 'score': 0.69145667552948, 'entity': 'I-company', 'index': 8, 'start': 7, 'end': 8}, 
       {'word': '拉', 'score': 0.7054660320281982, 'entity': 'I-company', 'index': 9, 'start': 8, 'end': 9}

Training data

CLUENER2020 is used as training data. We only use the train set of the dataset.

Training procedure

The model is fine-tuned by UER-py on Tencent Cloud. We fine-tune five epochs with a sequence length of 512 on the basis of the pre-trained model chinese_roberta_L-12_H-768. At the end of each epoch, the model is saved when the best performance on development set is achieved.

python3 --pretrained_model_path models/cluecorpussmall_roberta_base_seq512_model.bin-250000 \
                   --vocab_path models/google_zh_vocab.txt \
                   --train_path datasets/cluener2020/train.tsv \
                   --dev_path datasets/cluener2020/dev.tsv \
                   --label2id_path datasets/cluener2020/label2id.json \
                   --output_model_path models/cluener2020_ner_model.bin \
                   --learning_rate 3e-5 --batch_size 32 --epochs_num 5 --seq_length 512 \
                   --embedding word_pos_seg --encoder transformer --mask fully_visible

Finally, we convert the pre-trained model into Huggingface's format:

python3 scripts/ --input_model_path models/cluener2020_ner_model.bin \
                                                                             --output_model_path pytorch_model.bin \
                                                                             --layers_num 12
