Awesome Chinese Model Zoo

🀄 Comprehensive Chinese Transformer Models

We provide 45+ network architectures and over 500+ pretrained models. Not only includes all the SOTA model like ERNIE, PLATO and SKEP released by Baidu, but also integrates most of the high-quality Chinese pretrained model developed by other organizations. Use AutoModel API to ⚡SUPER FAST⚡ download pretrained mdoels of different architecture. We welcome all developers to contribute your Transformer models to PaddleNLP!

from paddlenlp.transformers import *

ernie = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
bert = AutoModel.from_pretrained('bert-wwm-chinese')
albert = AutoModel.from_pretrained('albert-chinese-tiny')
roberta = AutoModel.from_pretrained('roberta-wwm-ext')
electra = AutoModel.from_pretrained('chinese-electra-small')
gpt = AutoModelForPretraining.from_pretrained('gpt-cpm-large-cn')

Due to the computation limitation, you can use the ERNIE-Tiny light models to accelerate the deployment of pretrained models.

# 6L768H
ernie = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
# 6L384H
ernie = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-mini-zh')
# 4L384H
ernie = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-micro-zh')
# 4L312H
ernie = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-nano-zh')

Unified API experience for NLP task like semantic representation, text classification, sentence matching, sequence labeling, question answering, etc.

import paddle
from paddlenlp.transformers import *

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
text = tokenizer('natural language processing')

# Semantic Representation
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
sequence_output, pooled_output = model(input_ids=paddle.to_tensor([text['input_ids']]))
# Text Classificaiton and Matching
model = AutoModelForSequenceClassification.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
# Sequence Labeling
model = AutoModelForTokenClassification.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')
# Question Answering
model = AutoModelForQuestionAnswering.from_pretrained('ernie-3.0-medium-zh')

Wide-range NLP Task Support

PaddleNLP provides rich examples covering mainstream NLP task to help developers accelerate problem solving. You can find our powerful transformer Model Zoo, and wide-range NLP application exmaples with detailed instructions.

High Performance Distributed Training and Inference

⚡ FasterTokenizer: High Performance Text Preprocessing Library

AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("ernie-3.0-medium-zh", use_faster=True)

Set use_faster=True to use C++ Tokenizer kernel to achieve 100x faster on text pre-processing. For more usage please refer to FasterTokenizer.

⚡ FasterGeneration: High Perforance Generation Library

model = GPTLMHeadModel.from_pretrained('gpt-cpm-large-cn')
...
outputs, _ = model.generate(
    input_ids=inputs_ids, max_length=10, decode_strategy='greedy_search',
    use_faster=True)

Set use_faster=True to achieve 5x speedup for Transformer, GPT, BART, PLATO, UniLM text generation. For more usage please refer to FasterGeneration.
