Model overview

The gpt2-chinese-cluecorpussmall model is a set of Chinese GPT2 models of varying sizes, from 6 layers to 48 layers, that were pretrained by UER-py on the CLUECorpusSmall dataset. The models can be used to generate Chinese text. The smallest 6-layer model follows the configuration of distilgpt2, while the larger models up to 48 layers were pretrained by TencentPretrain. These models provide a range of trade-offs between model size and performance that users can choose from depending on their needs.

Model inputs and outputs


  • Text: The model takes in a prompt or initial text as input, and generates additional text continuing from that prompt.


  • Generated text: The model outputs generated Chinese text that continues from the provided prompt. The length of the generated text can be controlled.


The gpt2-chinese-cluecorpussmall models can be used to generate coherent Chinese text on a wide range of topics. The larger models with more layers generally have higher text generation quality and ability to capture long-range dependencies, while the smaller models offer faster inference speed and lower computational requirements.

What can I use it for?

These Chinese GPT2 models can be useful for a variety of text generation tasks, such as creative writing, dialogue generation, and content creation. The models could be fine-tuned on domain-specific data to generate relevant text for applications like customer service chatbots, product descriptions, or news articles. The different model sizes also allow for flexibility in deploying the models on hardware with varying compute capabilities.

Things to try

One interesting thing to try with these models is to experiment with the different model sizes and observe the tradeoffs in text generation quality, coherence, and computational efficiency. You could also try fine-tuning the models on specialized datasets relevant to your use case and evaluate the performance gains. Additionally, comparing the outputs of the distilled 6-layer model to the larger models could provide insights into the effects of model compression on text generation capabilities.

The roberta-base-chinese-extractive-qa model is a Chinese RoBERTa-Base model fine-tuned for extractive question answering. It was developed by UER, who introduced the model in this paper. The model can be used to extract answers from text given a question. This model is one of several Chinese language models released by UER, including the sbert-base-chinese-nli sentence embedding model and a set of Chinese GPT2 models. Like those models, the roberta-base-chinese-extractive-qa model was pre-trained using the UER-py toolkit, and some later models also leverage the TencentPretrain framework. Model inputs and outputs Inputs Question**: A question in Chinese to be answered Context**: The text containing the answer to the question Outputs Answer**: The span of text from the context that answers the question Score**: A confidence score for the extracted answer Capabilities The roberta-base-chinese-extractive-qa model can be used to answer questions by finding the relevant text in a given context. It was trained on several Chinese question-answering datasets, including cmrc2018, webqa, and laisi. This allows the model to handle a variety of question types and identify both answerable and unanswerable questions. What can I use it for? This model would be useful for building Chinese question-answering systems, such as chatbots or virtual assistants. It could be applied to domains like customer service, educational resources, or knowledge bases to allow users to find information by asking natural language questions. Things to try One interesting aspect of this model is its ability to handle unanswerable questions. You could experiment with providing the model with questions that cannot be answered by the given context, and observe how it responds compared to models trained only on answerable questions. This could help build more robust QA systems that can gracefully handle a wider range of user inputs.

gpt2 is a transformer-based language model created and released by OpenAI. It is the smallest version of the GPT-2 model, with 124 million parameters. Like other GPT-2 models, gpt2 is a causal language model pretrained on a large corpus of English text using a self-supervised objective to predict the next token in a sequence. This allows the model to learn a general understanding of the English language that can be leveraged for a variety of downstream tasks. The gpt2 model is related to larger GPT-2 variations such as GPT2-Large, GPT2-Medium, and GPT2-XL, which have 355 million, 774 million, and 1.5 billion parameters respectively. These larger models were also developed and released by the OpenAI community. Model inputs and outputs Inputs Text sequence**: The model takes a sequence of text as input, which it uses to generate additional text. Outputs Generated text**: The model outputs a continuation of the input text sequence, generating new text one token at a time in an autoregressive fashion. Capabilities The gpt2 model is capable of generating fluent, coherent text in English on a wide variety of topics. It can be used for tasks like creative writing, text summarization, and language modeling. However, as the OpenAI team notes, the model does not distinguish fact from fiction, so it should not be used for applications that require the generated text to be truthful. What can I use it for? The gpt2 model can be used for a variety of text generation tasks. Researchers may use it to better understand the behaviors, capabilities, and biases of large-scale language models. The model could also be fine-tuned for applications like grammar assistance, auto-completion, creative writing, and chatbots. However, users should be aware of the model's limitations and potential for biased or harmful output, as discussed in the OpenAI model card. Things to try One interesting aspect of the gpt2 model is its ability to generate diverse and creative text from a given prompt. You can experiment with providing the model with different types of starting prompts, such as the beginning of a story, a description of a scene, or even a single word, and see what kind of coherent and imaginative text it generates in response. Additionally, you can try fine-tuning the model on a specific domain or task to see how its performance and output changes compared to the base model.
