Model NLP

The config file for NLP models contain three main sections:

The following sub-sections of the model section are shared among most of the NLP models.

  • tokenizer: specifies the tokenizer

  • language_model: specifies the underlying model to be used as the encoder

  • optim: the configs of the optimizer and scheduler NeMo Models

The tokenizer and language_model sections have the following parameters:

Parameter

Data Type

Description

model.tokenizer.tokenizer_name

string

Tokenizer name will be filled automatically based on model.language_model.pretrained_model_name.

model.tokenizer.vocab_file

string

Path to tokenizer vocabulary.

model.tokenizer.tokenizer_model

string

Path to tokenizer model (only for sentencepiece tokenizer).

model.language_model.pretrained_model_name

string

Pre-trained language model name, for example: bert-base-cased or bert-base-uncased.

model.language_model.lm_checkpoint

string

Path to the pre-trained language model checkpoint.

model.language_model.config_file

string

Path to the pre-trained language model config file.

model.language_model.config

dictionary

Config of the pre-trained language model.

The parameter model.language_model.pretrained_model_name can be one of the following:

  • megatron-bert-345m-uncased, megatron-bert-345m-cased, biomegatron-bert-345m-uncased, biomegatron-bert-345m-cased, bert-base-uncased, bert-large-uncased, bert-base-cased, bert-large-cased

  • distilbert-base-uncased, distilbert-base-cased

  • roberta-base, roberta-large, distilroberta-base

  • albert-base-v1, albert-large-v1, albert-xlarge-v1, albert-xxlarge-v1, albert-base-v2, albert-large-v2, albert-xlarge-v2, albert-xxlarge-v2
