Input Data Formats and Datasets¶
This page describes input data formats compatible with BigARTM. Currently all formats support Bag-of-words representation, meaning that all linguistic processing (lemmatization, tokenization, detection of n-grams, etc) needs to be done outside BigARTM.
Vowpal Wabbit is a single-format file, based on the following principles:
- each document is represented in a single line
- all tokens are represented as strings (no need to convert them into an integer identifier)
- token frequency defaults to
1.0, and can be optionally specified after a colon (:)
- namespaces (
Batch.class_id) can be identified by a pipe (|)

- putting tokens in each document in their natural order without specifying token frequencies will lead to model with sequential texts (not Bag-of-words)

UCI Bag-of-words format consists of two files -
docword.*.txt. The format of the
docword.*.txtfile is 3 header lines, followed by NNZ triples:
D W NNZ docID wordID count docID wordID count ... docID wordID count
The file must be sorted on docID. Values of wordID must be unity-based (not zero-based). The format of the
vocab.*.txtfile is line containing wordID=n. Note that words must not have spaces or tabs. In
vocab.*.txtfile it is also possible to specify the namespace (
Batch.class_id) for tokens, as it is shown in this example:
token1 @default_class token2 custom_class token3 @default_class token4
Use space or tab to separate token from its class. Token that are not followed by class label automatically get ‘’@default_class’’ as a label (see ‘’token4’’ in the example).
Unicode support. For non-ASCII characters save
vocab.*.txtfile in UTF-8 format.
Batches (binary BigARTM-specific format).
- A batch is a collection of several items
- An item is a collection of pairs
Note that the batch has its local dictionary,
batch.token. This dictionary which maps
token_idinto the actual token. In order to create a batch from textual files involve one needs to find all distinct words, and map them into sequential indices.
batch.idmust be set to a unique GUID in a format of
