GluonNLP: Your Choice of Deep Learning for NLP
GluonNLP is a toolkit that enables easy text preprocessing, datasets loading and neural models building to help you speed up your Natural Language Processing (NLP) research.
Make sure you have Python 2.7 or Python 3.6 and recent version of MXNet.
You can install
GluonNLP using pip:
pip install --pre --upgrade mxnet pip install gluonnlp
GluonNLP documentation is available at our website.

Quick Start Guide
Load the Wikitext-2 dataset, for example:
>>> import gluonnlp as nlp >>> train = nlp.data.WikiText2(segment='train') >>> train[0:5] ['=', 'Valkyria', 'Chronicles', 'III', '=']
Build vocabulary based on the above dataset, for example:
>>> vocab = nlp.Vocab(counter=nlp.data.Counter(train)) >>> vocab Vocab(size=33280, unk="<unk>", reserved="['<pad>', '<bos>', '<eos>']")
From the models package, apply a Standard RNN language model to the above dataset:
>>> model = nlp.model.language_model.StandardRNN('lstm', len(vocab), ... 200, 200, 2, 0.5, True) >>> model StandardRNN( (embedding): HybridSequential( (0): Embedding(33280 -> 200, float32) (1): Dropout(p = 0.5, axes=()) ) (encoder): LSTM(200 -> 200.0, TNC, num_layers=2, dropout=0.5) (decoder): HybridSequential( (0): Dense(200 -> 33280, linear) ) )
For example, load a GloVe word embedding, one of the state-of-the-art English word embeddings:
>>> glove = nlp.embedding.create('glove', source='glove.6B.50d') # Obtain vectors for 'baby' in the GloVe word embedding >>> type(glove['baby']) <class 'mxnet.ndarray.ndarray.NDArray'> >>> glove['baby'].shape (50,)
