摘要
Recent rapid advancements in deep pre-trained language models and the introductions of large datasets have powered research in embedding-based dense retrieval. While several good research papers have emerged, many of them come with their own software stacks. These stacks are typically optimized for some particular research goals instead of efficiency or code structure. In this paper, we present Tevatron, a dense retrieval toolkit optimized for efficiency, flexibility, and code simplicity. Tevatron provides a standardized pipeline for dense retrieval including text processing, model training, corpus/query encoding, and search. This paper presents an overview of Tevatron and demonstrates its effectiveness and efficiency across several IR and QA data sets. We also show how Tevatron's flexible design enables easy generalization across datasets, model architectures, and accelerator platforms(GPU/TPU). We believe Tevatron can serve as an effective software foundation for dense retrieval system research including design, modeling, and optimization.
