Fairseq(-py) is a sequence modeling toolkit that allows researchers and developers to train custom models for translation, summarization, language modeling and other text generation tasks. We provide reference implementations of various sequence modeling papers:

What's New:

Previous updates

Features:

  • multi-GPU training on one machine or across multiple machines (data and model parallel)
  • fast generation on both CPU and GPU with multiple search algorithms implemented:
  • large mini-batch training even on a single GPU via delayed updates
  • mixed precision training (trains faster with less GPU memory on NVIDIA tensor cores)
  • extensible: easily register new models, criterions, tasks, optimizers and learning rate schedulers

We also provide pre-trained models for translation and language modeling with a convenient torch.hub interface:

en2de = torch.hub.load('pytorch/fairseq', 'transformer.wmt19.en-de.single_model')
en2de.translate('Hello world', beam=5)
# 'Hallo Welt'

See the PyTorch Hub tutorials for translation and RoBERTa for more examples.

Requirements and Installation

  • PyTorch version >= 1.4.0
  • Python version >= 3.6
  • For training new models, you'll also need an NVIDIA GPU and NCCL
  • To install fairseq and develop locally:
git clone https://github.com/pytorch/fairseq
cd fairseq
pip install --editable ./

# on MacOS:
# CFLAGS="-stdlib=libc++" pip install --editable ./
  • For faster training install NVIDIA's apex library:
git clone https://github.com/NVIDIA/apex
cd apex
pip install -v --no-cache-dir --global-option="--cpp_ext" --global-option="--cuda_ext" \
  --global-option="--deprecated_fused_adam" --global-option="--xentropy" \
  --global-option="--fast_multihead_attn" ./
  • For large datasets install PyArrow: pip install pyarrow
  • If you use Docker make sure to increase the shared memory size either with --ipc=host or --shm-size as command line options to nvidia-docker run.

Getting Started

The full documentation contains instructions for getting started, training new models and extending fairseq with new model types and tasks.

Pre-trained models and examples

We provide pre-trained models and pre-processed, binarized test sets for several tasks listed below, as well as example training and evaluation commands.

We also have more detailed READMEs to reproduce results from specific papers:
