Create an LLM-powered Chatbot using OpenVINO Generate API#

This Jupyter notebook can be launched after a local installation only.

Github

In the rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots have emerged as powerful tools for businesses to enhance customer interactions and streamline operations. Large Language Models (LLMs) are artificial intelligence systems that can understand and generate human language. They use deep learning algorithms and massive amounts of data to learn the nuances of language and produce coherent and relevant responses. While a decent intent-based chatbot can answer basic, one-touch inquiries like order management, FAQs, and policy questions, LLM chatbots can tackle more complex, multi-touch questions. LLM enables chatbots to provide support in a conversational manner, similar to how humans do, through contextual memory. Leveraging the capabilities of Language Models, chatbots are becoming increasingly intelligent, capable of understanding and responding to human language with remarkable accuracy.

Previously, we already discussed how to build an instruction-following pipeline using OpenVINO and Optimum Intel, please check out Dolly example for reference. In this tutorial, we consider how to use the power of OpenVINO for running Large Language Models for chat. We will use a pre-trained model from the Hugging Face Transformers library. The Hugging Face Optimum Intel library converts the models to OpenVINO™ IR format. To simplify the user experience, we will use OpenVINO Generate API for generation of instruction-following inference pipeline.

The tutorial consists of the following steps:

Convert model using Optimum-CLI tool#

Optimum Intel is the interface between the Transformers and Diffusers libraries and OpenVINO to accelerate end-to-end pipelines on Intel architectures. It provides ease-to-use cli interface for exporting models to OpenVINO Intermediate Representation (IR) format.

The command bellow demonstrates basic command for model export with optimum-cli

optimum-cli export openvino --model <model_id_or_path> --task <task> <out_dir>

where --model argument is model id from HuggingFace Hub or local directory with model (saved using .save_pretrained method), --task is one of supported task that exported model should solve. For LLMs it will be text-generation-with-past. If model initialization requires to use remote code, --trust-remote-code flag additionally should be passed.

Compress model weights#

The Weights Compression algorithm is aimed at compressing the weights of the models and can be used to optimize the model footprint and performance of large models where the size of weights is relatively larger than the size of activations, for example, Large Language Models (LLM). Compared to INT8 compression, INT4 compression improves performance even more, but introduces a minor drop in prediction quality.

Weights Compression using Optimum-CLI#

You can also apply fp16, 8-bit or 4-bit weight compression on the Linear, Convolutional and Embedding layers when exporting your model with the CLI by setting --weight-format to respectively fp16, int8 or int4. This type of optimization allows to reduce the memory footprint and inference latency. By default the quantization scheme for int8/int4 will be asymmetric, to make it symmetric you can add --sym.

For INT4 quantization you can also specify the following arguments:

  • The --group-size parameter will define the group size to use for quantization, -1 it will results in per-column quantization.

  • The --ratio parameter controls the ratio between 4-bit and 8-bit quantization. If set to 0.9, it means that 90% of the layers will be quantized to int4 while 10% will be quantized to int8.

Smaller group_size and ratio values usually improve accuracy at the sacrifice of the model size and inference latency.

Note: There may be no speedup for INT4/INT8 compressed models on dGPU.

Weight compression with AWQ#

Activation-aware Weight Quantization (AWQ) is an algorithm that tunes model weights for more accurate INT4 compression. It slightly improves generation quality of compressed LLMs, but requires significant additional time for tuning weights on a calibration dataset. We use wikitext-2-raw-v1/train subset of the Wikitext dataset for calibration.

Below you can enable AWQ to be additionally applied during model export with INT4 precision.

Note: Applying AWQ requires significant memory and time.

Note: It is possible that there will be no matching patterns in the model to apply AWQ, in such case it will be skipped.

    value=False,

Replacing (?!S) pattern to (?:$|[^S]) in RegexSplit operation

Let’s compare model size for different compression types

fp16_weights = fp16_model_dir / "openvino_model.bin"
int8_weights = int8_model_dir / "openvino_model.bin"
int4_weights = int4_model_dir / "openvino_model.bin"

if fp16_weights.exists():
    print(f"Size of FP16 model is {fp16_weights.stat().st_size / 1024 / 1024:.2f} MB")
for precision, compressed_weights in zip([8, 4], [int8_weights, int4_weights]):
    if compressed_weights.exists():
        print(f"Size of model with INT{precision} compressed weights is {compressed_weights.stat().st_size / 1024 / 1024:.2f} MB")
    if compressed_weights.exists() and fp16_weights.exists():
        print(f"Compression rate for INT{precision} model: {fp16_weights.stat().st_size / compressed_weights.stat().st_size:.3f}")
Size of model with INT4 compressed weights is 358.86 MB

Select device for inference and model variant#

Note: There may be no speedup for INT4/INT8 compressed models on dGPU.

import openvino as ov

core = ov.Core()

support_devices = core.available_devices
if "NPU" in support_devices:
    support_devices.remove("NPU")

device = widgets.Dropdown(
    options=support_devices + ["AUTO"],
    value="CPU",
    description="Device:",
    disabled=False,
)

Instantiate pipeline with OpenVINO Generate API#

OpenVINO Generate API can be used to create pipelines to run an inference with OpenVINO Runtime.

Firstly we need to create pipeline with LLMPipeline. LLMPipeline is the main object used for decoding. You can construct it straight away from the folder with the converted model. It will automatically load the main model, tokenizer, detokenizer and default generation configuration. We will provide directory with model and device for LLMPipeline. After that we will configure parameters for decoding. We can get default config with get_generation_config(), setup parameters and apply the updated version with set_generation_config(config) or put config directly to generate(). It’s also possible to specify the needed options just as inputs in the generate() method, as shown below. Then we just run generate method and get the output in text format. We do not need to encode input prompt according to model expected template or write post-processing code for logits decoder, it will be done easily with LLMPipeline.

from transformers import AutoTokenizer
from openvino_tokenizers import convert_tokenizer
from openvino_genai import LLMPipeline

if model_to_run.value == "INT4":
    model_dir = int4_model_dir
elif model_to_run.value == "INT8":
    model_dir = int8_model_dir
else:
    model_dir = fp16_model_dir
print(f"Loading model from {model_dir}\n")

# optionally convert tokenizer if used cached model without it
if not (model_dir / "openvino_tokenizer.xml").exists() or not (model_dir / "openvino_detokenizer.xml").exists():
    hf_tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_dir, trust_remote_code=True)
    ov_tokenizer, ov_detokenizer = convert_tokenizer(hf_tokenizer, with_detokenizer=True)
    ov.save_model(ov_tokenizer, model_dir / "openvino_tokenizer.xml")
    ov.save_model(ov_tokenizer, model_dir / "openvino_detokenizer.xml")


pipe = LLMPipeline(str(model_dir), device.value)
print(pipe.generate("The Sun is yellow bacause", temperature=1.2, top_k=4, do_sample=True, max_new_tokens=50))
Loading model from qwen2-0.5b-instruct/INT4_compressed_weights

 the light of the sun travels faster through the air than the light of a lamp. 120% of the sunlight is absorbed by plants in an area. 10% of the sunlight passes through the sky and is lost. If

Run Chatbot#

Now, when model created, we can setup Chatbot interface using Gradio. The diagram below illustrates how the chatbot pipeline works

generation pipeline

generation pipeline#

As can be seen, the pipeline very similar to instruction-following with only changes that previous conversation history additionally passed as input with next user question for getting wider input context. On the first iteration, it is provided instructions joined to conversation history (if exists) converted to token ids using a tokenizer, then prepared input provided to the model. The model generates probabilities for all tokens in logits format. The way the next token will be selected over predicted probabilities is driven by the selected decoding methodology. You can find more information about the most popular decoding methods in this blog. The result generation updates conversation history for next conversation step. It makes stronger connection of next question with previously provided and allows user to make clarifications regarding previously provided answers. More about that, please, see here.

To make experience easier, we will use OpenVINO Generate API. Firstly we will create pipeline with LLMPipeline. LLMPipeline is the main object used for decoding. You can construct it straight away from the folder with the converted model. It will automatically load the main model, tokenizer, detokenizer and default generation configuration. After that we will configure parameters for decoding. We can get default config with get_generation_config(), setup parameters and apply the updated version with set_generation_config(config) or put config directly to generate(). It’s also possible to specify the needed options just as inputs in the generate() method, as shown below. Then we just run generate method and get the output in text format. We do not need to encode input prompt according to model expected template or write post-processing code for logits decoder, it will be done easily with LLMPipeline.

There are several parameters that can control text generation quality: * Temperature is a parameter used to control the level of creativity in AI-generated text. By adjusting the temperature, you can influence the AI model’s probability distribution, making the text more focused or diverse.
Consider the following example: The AI model has to complete the sentence “The cat is ____.” with the following token probabilities:
playing: 0.5
sleeping: 0.25
eating: 0.15
driving: 0.05
flying: 0.05

- **Low temperature** (e.g., 0.2): The AI model becomes more focused and deterministic, choosing tokens with the highest probability, such as "playing."
- **Medium temperature** (e.g., 1.0): The AI model maintains a balance between creativity and focus, selecting tokens based on their probabilities without significant bias, such as "playing," "sleeping," or "eating."
- **High temperature** (e.g., 2.0): The AI model becomes more adventurous, increasing the chances of selecting less likely tokens, such as "driving" and "flying."
  • Top-p, also known as nucleus sampling, is a parameter used to control the range of tokens considered by the AI model based on their cumulative probability. By adjusting the top-p value, you can influence the AI model’s token selection, making it more focused or diverse. Using the same example with the cat, consider the following top_p settings:

    • Low top_p (e.g., 0.5): The AI model considers only tokens with the highest cumulative probability, such as “playing.”

    • Medium top_p (e.g., 0.8): The AI model considers tokens with a higher cumulative probability, such as “playing,” “sleeping,” and “eating.”

    • High top_p (e.g., 1.0): The AI model considers all tokens, including those with lower probabilities, such as “driving” and “flying.”

  • Top-k is an another popular sampling strategy. In comparison with Top-P, which chooses from the smallest possible set of words whose cumulative probability exceeds the probability P, in Top-K sampling K most likely next words are filtered and the probability mass is redistributed among only those K next words. In our example with cat, if k=3, then only “playing”, “sleeping” and “eating” will be taken into account as possible next word.

  • Repetition Penalty This parameter can help penalize tokens based on how frequently they occur in the text, including the input prompt. A token that has already appeared five times is penalized more heavily than a token that has appeared only one time. A value of 1 means that there is no penalty and values larger than 1 discourage repeated tokens.https://docs.openvino.ai/2024/learn-openvino/llm_inference_guide.html

Prepare text streamer to get results runtime#

Load the detokenizer, use it to convert token_id to string output format. We will collect print-ready text in a queue and give the text when it is needed. It will help estimate performance.

import re
from queue import Queue
from openvino_genai import StreamerBase

core = ov.Core()

detokinizer_path = Path(model_dir, "openvino_detokenizer.xml")


class TextStreamerIterator(StreamerBase):
    def __init__(self, tokenizer):
        super().__init__()
        self.tokenizer = tokenizer
        self.compiled_detokenizer = core.compile_model(detokinizer_path.as_posix())
        self.text_queue = Queue()
        self.stop_signal = None

    def __iter__(self):
        return self

    def __next__(self):
        value = self.text_queue.get()
        if value == self.stop_signal:
            raise StopIteration()
        else:
            return value

    def put(self, token_id):
        openvino_output = self.compiled_detokenizer([[0, token_id]])
        text = str(openvino_output["string_output"][0])
        # remove labels/special symbols
        text = re.sub("<.*>", "", text)
        self.text_queue.put(text)

    def end(self):
        self.text_queue.put(self.stop_signal)
