How to Disable TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM=(true | false) warning

To disable the TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM warning in the Hugging Face transformers library, you can set the TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM environment variable to true or false before importing the library.

import os

# Set the TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM environment variable
os.environ["TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM"] = "false"

# Now import the Transformers library
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSequenceClassification

# Your code continues here...

Setting the TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM environment variable to true or false depends on whether you want to enable or disable parallelism in tokenizers.

In most cases, you can set it to true to allow tokenizers to use multiple threads for parallel processing.

However, if you’re using the library in an environment where parallelism is not supported, such as AWS Lambda, you might want to set it to false.

You can also set the environment variable to the string “false” by typing the TOKENIZERS_PARALLELISM=false in your shell.

That’s it.
