pytorch-crf 0.4.0

Conditional random field in PyTorch

Conditional random field in PyTorch.

Description

This package provides an implementation of conditional random field (CRF) in PyTorch. This implementation borrows mostly from AllenNLP CRF module with some modifications.

NOTE: This software is still in alpha version; every minor version change introduces backward incompatibility.

Requirements

  • Python 3.6
  • PyTorch 0.3.0

Installation

You can install with pip

pip install pytorch-crf

Or, you can install from Github directly

pip install git+https://github.com/kmkurn/pytorch-crf#egg=pytorch_crf

Examples

In the examples below, we will assume that these lines have been executed

>>> import torch
>>> from torchcrf import CRF
>>> seq_length, batch_size, num_tags = 3, 2, 5
>>> emissions = torch.autograd.Variable(torch.randn(seq_length, batch_size, num_tags), requires_grad=True)
>>> tags = torch.autograd.Variable(torch.LongTensor([[0, 1], [2, 4], [3, 1]]))  # (seq_length, batch_size)
>>> model = CRF(num_tags)
>>> # Initialize model parameters
... for p in model.parameters():
...    _ = torch.nn.init.uniform(p, -1, 1)
...
>>>

Forward computation

>>> model(emissions, tags)
Variable containing:
-10.0635
[torch.FloatTensor of size 1]

Forward computation with mask

>>> mask = torch.autograd.Variable(torch.ByteTensor([[1, 1], [1, 1], [1, 0]]))  # (seq_length, batch_size)
>>> model(emissions, tags, mask=mask)
Variable containing:
-8.4981
[torch.FloatTensor of size 1]

Decoding

>>> model.decode(emissions)
[[3, 1, 3], [0, 1, 0]]

Decoding with mask

>>> model.decode(emissions, mask=mask)
[[3, 1, 3], [0, 1, 0]]
