class RoBertaForQuestionAnswering extends AnnotatorModel[RoBertaForQuestionAnswering] with HasBatchedAnnotate[RoBertaForQuestionAnswering] with WriteTensorflowModel with HasCaseSensitiveProperties with HasEngine

RoBertaForQuestionAnswering can load RoBERTa Models with a span classification head on top for extractive question-answering tasks like SQuAD (a linear layer on top of the hidden-states output to compute span start logits and span end logits).

Pretrained models can be loaded with pretrained of the companion object:

val spanClassifier = RoBertaForQuestionAnswering.pretrained()
  .setInputCols(Array("document_question", "document_context"))
  .setOutputCol("answer")

The default model is "roberta_base_qa_squad2", if no name is provided.

For available pretrained models please see the Models Hub.

To see which models are compatible and how to import them see https://github.com/JohnSnowLabs/spark-nlp/discussions/5669 and to see more extended examples, see RoBertaForQuestionAnsweringTestSpec.

Example

import spark.implicits._
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.base._
import com.johnsnowlabs.nlp.annotator._
import org.apache.spark.ml.Pipeline

val document = new MultiDocumentAssembler()
  .setInputCols("question", "context")
  .setOutputCols("document_question", "document_context")

val questionAnswering = RoBertaForQuestionAnswering.pretrained()
  .setInputCols(Array("document_question", "document_context"))
  .setOutputCol("answer")
  .setCaseSensitive(true)

val pipeline = new Pipeline().setStages(Array(
  document,
  questionAnswering
))

val data = Seq("What's my name?", "My name is Clara and I live in Berkeley.").toDF("question", "context")
val result = pipeline.fit(data).transform(data)

result.select("label.result").show(false)
