🎉🎉🎉 We are proud to announce that we entirely rewrote Kashgari with tf.keras, now Kashgari comes with easier to understand API and is faster! 🎉🎉🎉

Overview

Kashgari is a simple and powerful NLP Transfer learning framework, build a state-of-art model in 5 minutes for named entity recognition (NER), part-of-speech tagging (PoS), and text classification tasks.

  • Human-friendly. Kashgari's code is straightforward, well documented and tested, which makes it very easy to understand and modify.
  • Powerful and simple. Kashgari allows you to apply state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) models to your text, such as named entity recognition (NER), part-of-speech tagging (PoS) and classification.
  • Built-in transfer learning. Kashgari built-in pre-trained BERT and Word2vec embedding models, which makes it very simple to transfer learning to train your model.
  • Fully scalable. Kashgari provides a simple, fast, and scalable environment for fast experimentation, train your models and experiment with new approaches using different embeddings and model structure.
  • Production Ready. Kashgari could export model with SavedModel format for tensorflow serving, you could directly deploy it on the cloud.

Our Goal

  • Academic users Easier experimentation to prove their hypothesis without coding from scratch.
  • NLP beginners Learn how to build an NLP project with production level code quality.
  • NLP developers Build a production level classification/labeling model within minutes.

Quick start

Requirements and Installation

🎉🎉🎉 We renamed the tf.keras version as kashgari-tf 🎉🎉🎉

The project is based on TensorFlow 1.14.0 and Python 3.6+, because it is 2019 and type hinting is cool.

pip install kashgari-tf
# CPU
pip install tensorflow==1.14.0
# GPU
pip install tensorflow-gpu==1.14.0

Example Usage

Let's run an NER labeling model with Bi_LSTM Model.

from kashgari.corpus import ChineseDailyNerCorpus
from kashgari.tasks.labeling import BiLSTM_Model

train_x, train_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data('train')
test_x, test_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data('test')
valid_x, valid_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data('valid')

model = BiLSTM_Model()
model.fit(train_x, train_y, valid_x, valid_y, epochs=50)

Run with GPT-2 Embedding

from kashgari.embeddings import GPT2Embedding
from kashgari.corpus import ChineseDailyNerCorpus
from kashgari.tasks.labeling import BiGRU_Model

train_x, train_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data('train')
valid_x, valid_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data('valid')

gpt2_embedding = GPT2Embedding('<path-to-gpt-model-folder>', sequence_length=30)
model = BiGRU_Model(gpt2_embedding)
model.fit(train_x, train_y, valid_x, valid_y, epochs=50)

Run with Bert Embedding

from kashgari.embeddings import BERTEmbedding
from kashgari.tasks.labeling import BiGRU_Model
from kashgari.corpus import ChineseDailyNerCorpus

bert_embedding = BERTEmbedding('<bert-model-folder>', sequence_length=30)
model = BiGRU_Model(bert_embedding)

train_x, train_y = ChineseDailyNerCorpus.load_data()
model.fit(train_x, train_y)
