Using huggingface transformers trainer method for hugging face datasets

I am trying to train a transformer(Salesforce codet5-small) using the huggingface trainer method and on a hugging face Dataset (namely, “eth_py150_open”). However, I’m encountering a number of issues.

Here is the relevant code snippet:

import torch
import transformers
from datasets import load_dataset_builder
from datasets import load_dataset

corpus=load_dataset("eth_py150_open", split='train')

training_args = transformers.TrainingArguments( #general training arguments
    per_device_train_batch_size = 8,
    warmup_steps = 0,
    weight_decay = 0.01,
    learning_rate = 1e-4,
    num_train_epochs = 12,
    output_dir = './runs/run2/output/',
    logging_dir = './runs/run2/logging/',
    logging_steps = 50,
    save_steps= 10000,

model = transformers.T5ForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained('Salesforce/codet5-small').cuda()

trainer = transformers.Trainer(
    model = model,
   args = training_args,
    train_dataset = corpus,

However, when running trainer.train(), I get the following error:

***** Running training *****
  Num examples = 74749
  Num Epochs = 12
  Instantaneous batch size per device = 8
  Total train batch size (w. parallel, distributed & accumulation) = 8
  Gradient Accumulation steps = 1
  Total optimization steps = 112128

   2418             )

TypeError: can only join an iterable

I have tried converting corpus to a torch Dataset object using the following code I found on a related GitHub intended for this purpose:

from import Dataset
class HFDataset(Dataset):
    def __init__(self, dset):
        self.dset = dset

    def __getitem__(self, idx):
        return self.dset[idx]

    def __len__(self):
        return len(self.dset)

train_ds = HFDataset(corpus)

However, I run into the same “can only join an iterable” issue. I’d really appreciate any help in resolving this!
