A small example package

Project description


GitHub license

GeNN (generative neural networks) is a high-level interface for text applications using PyTorch RNN's.


  1. Preprocessing:
    • Parsing txt, json, and csv files.
    • NLTK, regex and spacy tokenization support.
    • GloVe and fastText pretrained embeddings, with the ability to fine-tune for your data.
  2. Architectures and customization:
    • GPT2 with small, medium, and large variants.
    • LSTM and GRU, with variable size.
    • Variable number of layers and batches.
    • Dropout.
  3. Text generation:
    • Random seed sampling from the n first tokens in all instances, or the most frequent token.
    • Top-K sampling for next token prediction with variable K.
    • Nucleus sampling for next token prediction with variable probability threshold.
  4. Text Summarization:
    • All GPT2 variants can be trained to perform text summarization.

Getting started

How to install

pip install genn


  • PyTorch 1.4.0
pip install torch==1.4.0
  • Pytorch Transformers
pip install pytorch_transformers
  • NumPy
pip install numpy
  • fastText
pip install fasttext

Use the package manager pip to install genn.


Text Generation:

RNNs (You can switch LSTMGenerator with GRUGenerator:
from genn import Preprocessing, LSTMGenerator, GRUGenerator
#LSTM example
ds = Preprocessing("data.txt")
gen = LSTMGenerator(ds, nLayers = 2,
                        batchSize = 16,
                        embSize = 64,
                        lstmSize = 16,
                        epochs = 20)
#Train the model

# Generate 5 new documents
GPT2 Generator:
#GPT2 example
gen = GPT2("data.txt",
 	    taskToken = "Movie:",
	    epochs = 7,
	    variant = "medium")
#Train the model

#Generate 10 new documents

Text Summarization:

GPT2 Summarizer:
#GPT2 Summarizer example
from genn import GPT2Summarizer
summ = GPT2Summarizer("data.txt",

#Train the model

#Create 5 summaries of a source document
src_doc = "This is the source document to summarize"
print(summ.summarize_document(n=5, setSeed = src_doc))
