Getting Started with Tokenization, Transformers and NLP #NLP #Tokenization #MachineLearning #Transformers @huggingface @MorganFunto
Earlier this month @huggingfacereleased a number of notebooks that walk users through some NLP basics. The three-part series, written by @MorganFunto, covers tokenizers, transformers, and pipelines utilizing Hugging Face’s transformer library. The notebooks cover the basics on a high level and get you working in the code quickly. The notebooks written in Colab allows anyone to run the code in the browser. Here’s the intro from the tokenization notebook:
Before going deep into any Machine Learning or Deep Learning Natural Language Processing models, every practitioner should find a way to map raw input strings to a representation understandable by a trainable model. One very simple approach would be to split inputs over every space and assign an identifier to each word.
The repo contains official notebooks provided by hugging face but also has a call for transformer notebooks from the community:
…we would like to list here interesting content created by the community. If you wrote some notebook(s) leveraging transformers and would like be listed here, please open a Pull Request and we’ll review it so it can be included here.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
