Chinese Pre-Trained XLNet (Base)


XLNet is a new unsupervised language representation learning method based on a novel generalized permutation language modeling objective. Additionally, XLNet employs Transformer-XL as the backbone model, exhibiting excellent performance for language tasks involving long context. Overall, XLNet achieves state-of-the-art (SOTA) results on various downstream language tasks including question answering, natural language inference, sentiment analysis, and document ranking. The details are described in the paper “​XLNet: Generalized Autoregressive Pretraining for Language Understanding

This model is based on CMU/Google official XLNet:


How to use

embeddings = XlnetEmbeddings.pretrained("chinese_xlnet_base", "zh") \
      .setInputCols("sentence", "token") \
val embeddings = XlnetEmbeddings.pretrained("chinese_xlnet_base", "zh")
      .setInputCols("sentence", "token")
import nlu

text = ["I love NLP"]
embeddings_df = nlu.load('zh.embed.chinese_xlnet_base').predict(text, output_level='token')
