TensorFlow

  • The source code is in the tf/ folder, supporting (1) single-node multi-gpu training, and (2) multi-host TPU training.
  • Besides the source code, we also provide pretrained "TensorFlow" models with state-of-the-art (SoTA) performances reported in the paper.
  • Please refer to tf/README.md for details.

PyTorch

  • The source code is in the pytorch/ folder, supporting single-node multi-gpu training via the module nn.DataParallel.
  • Please refer to pytorch/README.md for details.

Results

Transformer-XL achieves new state-of-the-art results on multipole language modeling benchmarks. Transformer-XL is also the first to break through the 1.0 barrier on char-level language modeling. Below is a summary.
