重複の確認

train_df[["contents", "y"]].describe()
contents y
count 8878 8878
unique 8675 2
top Subject: calpine daily gas nomination\r\n>\r\n... 0: not spam
freq 13 8707

contentsにおいてcountに比べてuniqueが少ないので一部重複があることがわかります
最大で13個の重複があります

test_df[["contents"]].describe()
contents
count 24838
unique 22147
top Subject: \r\n
freq 51

同様にtestデータにもcontentsの重複があります
特にSubject: \r\nは51個も含まれています

print('contentsが重複:', len(train_df[train_df.duplicated(subset=["contents"])]))
print('contentsとyがどちらも重複:', len(train_df[train_df.duplicated(subset=["contents", "y"])]))
train_df[train_df.duplicated(subset=["contents", "y"])]

Subject: enron net works\r\nit is becoming increasingly clear that the development of ecommerce will have\r\na significant and continuing impact on the conduct of business in a broad\r\narray of industries . through enrononline , enron has quickly become a major\r\ncatalyst for the transition to the web in the gas and electric industries .\r\nenrononline has been an enormous success since its launch . since launch , we\r\nhave completed 67 , 043 transactions on line , with a total dollar value of over\r\n$ 25 billion . enrononline is now the largest ecommerce site in the world .\r\nwe believe that the competitive success of enrononline is due to one very\r\nspecific reason . in addition to providing a web - based platform for\r\ntransactions , enron acts as principal to provide direct liquidity to the\r\nsite . we stand ready at all times , in any market conditions , to buy and sell\r\nat the posted price . this converts a  & bulletin board  8 ( the more typical\r\necommerce concept ) into a true market . there are very few , if any ,\r\ncompetitors that can provide this capability .\r\nwe are increasingly convinced that this competitive advantage can be\r\ndramatically expanded to other products and other geographies . if we are\r\ncorrect , this could provide an enormous new opportunity for growth for enron .\r\naccordingly , we are initiating a major new effort to capture this\r\nopportunity . effective today we are creating a new business , enron net\r\nworks , to pursue new market development opportunities in ecommerce across a\r\nbroad range of industries . it is likely that this business will ultimately\r\nbe our fifth business segment , joining transmission mike\r\nmcconnell , chief operating officer ; and jeff mcmahon , chief commercial\r\nofficer . these individuals will comprise the office of the chairman for\r\nenron net works and remain on the executive committee of enron corp .\r\nreplacing greg whalley as president and chief operating officer of enron\r\nnorth america is dave delainey , who will also join enron  , s executive\r\ncommittee .\r\nglobal technology will remain intact but will now be a part of enron net\r\nworks . it will maintain all of the same businesses and services as it did as\r\nan enron global function . philippe bibi will remain the chief technology\r\nofficer for all of enron corp . and continues to be responsible for the\r\ndevelopment of worldwide technology standards and platforms .\r\nenrononline , headed by louise kitchen , will also remain intact and will now\r\nbe a part of enron net works . the success of enrononline enables us to\r\nutilize this site as a model as we explore other markets . in addition , the\r\nfollowing individuals are included in enron net works along with their\r\ncurrent ecommerce initiatives : harry arora , public financial securities ; jay\r\nfitzgerald , new markets identification ; bruce garner , metals ; and greg piper ,\r\npulp and paper .\r\nover the next several weeks we will complete staffing and organizational\r\ndesign and will provide full details on this exciting new business\r\nopportunity .

Subject: capital book\r\nto further the process of reaching the stated objectives of increasing enron america ' s velocity of capital and associated return on invested capital , we have decided to create a capital book . the capital book will have no profit target associated with it and will be managed by joe deffner . the purpose of creating this book is to ensure that all transactions within enron americas , with any form of capital requirement , are structured correctly and are allocated the appropriate cost of capital charge .\r\nthe previous numbers used in the business plans at the beginning of this year will remain for all transactions in place and where we hold assets . therefore , on any assets currently held within each business area , the capital charge will remain at 15 % . internal ownership of these assets will be maintained by the originating business unit subject to the internal ownership policy outlined below .\r\nthe cost of capital associated with all transactions in enron americas will be set by joe . this process is separate and apart from the current rac process for transactions which will continue unchanged .\r\ncapital investments on balance sheet will continue to accrue a capital charge at the previously established rate of 15 % . transactions which are structured off credit will receive a pure market pass through of the actually incurred cost of capital as opposed to the previous 15 % across the board charge . transactions which are structured off balance sheet , but on credit will be priced based upon the financial impact on enron america ' s overall credit capacity .\r\non transactions that deploy capital through the trading books , the capital book will take a finance reserve on each transaction , similar to the way the credit group takes a credit reserve . this finance reserve will be used specifically to fund the capital required for the transaction . as noted above , the capital book will have no budget and will essentially charge out to the origination and trading groups at actual cost .\r\nby sending market - based capital pricing signals internally , enron america ' s sources of capital and liquidity should be better optimized across the organization .\r\nquestions regarding the capital book can be addressed to :\r\njoe deffner 853 - 7117\r\nalan quaintance 345 - 7731

' ' related - party transactions , ' ' as the accountants call them , are fraught with conflicts of interest . though much remains to be learned about these transactions , their scope and lack of transparency suggest that enron may have in effect created its own private hedge fund to assume some of the risk and mask the losses of its complex trading . the extent to which company insiders profited from the partnerships is not yet clear .\r\nenron has scrambled to dampen wall street ' s concerns , acknowledging its credibility problem while insisting on the health of its core businesses . on wednesday it brought in william powers , the dean of the university of texas school of law , to review the transactions . the securities and exchange commission has launched its own formal investigation . mr . fastow was forced to resign , following jeffrey skilling , the man credited with driving enron into new cutting - edge businesses , out the door .\r\nenron ' s former admirers on wall street , mindful of recent scandals involving high - profile companies doctoring their earnings , and of the spectacular collapse of the long - term capital management hedge fund in 1998 , are alarmed . carole coale of prudential securities summed up the prevailing sentiment when she told the times : ' ' the bottom line is , it ' s really difficult to recommend an investment when management does not disclose facts . ' ' analysts , as well as the media , are not entirely blameless . enron did mention , albeit in passing , the troubling related - party deals as early as march 2000 . but few analysts bothered to raise questions at a time when the company ' s revenues , profits and stock price were soaring .\r\nharvey pitt , the new securities and exchange commissioner , must pursue the enron inquiry aggressively in order to assure investors that he will be as vigilant as his predecessor , arthur levitt , when it comes to protecting the integrity of financial markets . indeed , even if enron is cleared of any wrongdoing and regains some of its past luster , as it well might , the company that preaches the merits of self - regulating marketplaces has reminded us all of the need for a strong regulator on wall street .\r\ncopyright ? 2000 dow jones & company , inc . all rights reserved .\r\nnovember 12 , 2001\r\nfinance\r\nbusiness week\r\nthe enron debacle\r\nbyzantine deals have shattered the energy outfit ' s credibility\r\nexecutives at high - flying enron corp . ( ene ) never seemed overly concerned with how the rest of the world viewed their business practices . earlier this year , the california attorney general had to get a court order to collect documents in an industrywide investigation into energy price fixing . and when an analyst challenged former ceo jeffrey k . skilling in a conference call to produce enron ' s balance sheet , skilling called him an " ass - - - - . " still , even some enron executives worried that the company had gone too far with two complex partnerships set up in 1999 to buy company assets and hedge investments . with enron ' s then - chief financial officer acting as general manager of the partnerships and in a position to personally benefit from their investments , the potential for a conflict of interest and backlash from investors seemed overwhelming . " internally , everybody said this is not a good idea , " says a source close to the company .\r\nbut no one could have predicted such a jaw - dropping outcome for the nation ' s largest and most innovative energy trader . since oct . 16 , when enron revealed a $ 35 million charge to earnings to reflect losses on those partnerships and was forced to knock $ 1 . 2 billion off its shareholders ' equity , the company ' s stock has plunged 60 % . the securities its highly ballyhooed business for trading high - speed communications capacity was crippled by the telecom industry meltdown ; and its calamitous foray into the water business with azurix corp . has already cost enron at least $ 574 million in write - offs .\r\nthese bad bets and the expensive ljm shock have investors worried about what else might be lurking at enron . many aren ' t sticking around to find out . " i think the lack of disclosure on their financial engineering killed the credibility of the management team , " says richard a . giesen , who manages the munder power plus fund , which dumped its enron shares about a month ago .\r\nit ' s not clear just how many off - balance - sheet financing vehicles enron has used over time . some were created years ago to finance oil and gas producers . analysts and sources close to the deals say there ' s no particular risk in these to enron shareholders . other interconnected entities , such as whitewing , osprey , atlantic water trust , and marlin water trust , were a way to get assets no longer central to enron ' s strategy off its balance sheet , freeing capital and credit for the core energy business and ventures like broadband ( table ) .\r\nto entice institutional investors such as pension funds and insurers into these deals , enron promised to kick in equity if asset sales weren ' t enough to cover debt . such " mandatory equity " deals have been used by at least a half - dozen others in the energy and telecom industries , including el paso ( epg ) , williams , and dominion , says standard & poor ' s director todd a . shipman . " nobody ' s going to find anything that ' s particularly unique or below board " in such deals , says one investment banker specializing in the energy business .\r\nworst case , which shipman considers unlikely , enron could be on the hook for about $ 3 billion in its mandatory - equity deals . that could mean diluting its shares by more than 25 % at today ' s prices . analyst john e . olson at sanders morris harris inc . ( smhg ) figures a 9 % dilution is more likely . even if this $ 3 billion in debt were included on enron ' s balance sheet now , the debt - to - capital ratio would climb to 54 % from about 49 % at the end of june . such a change would pressure enron ' s credit rating but not push it below investment grade , says shipman .\r\nhuge hit . fastow ' s ljm , a private equity fund , was a different kind of animal , according to sources familiar with the arrangements . it bought energy and other assets from enron , which booked gains and losses on those deals . ljm was also involved in complex hedging that was supposed to reduce the volatility of some of enron ' s investments , including stakes in high - tech and telecom businesses and an interest in new power co . , which markets power to consumers . when enron terminated these deals in september , it took the $ 1 . 2 billion hit to equity .\r\nbut the more immediate question is whether trading partners will stick with the company . the first place that might show up is in enron ' s highly successful online platform , which trades everything from gas and electricity to weather derivatives . to reassure its partners , enron is scrambling to shore up its liquidity . it has already tapped $ 3 billion in credit lines and is trying to arrange another $ 1 billion . shipman says he has seen no signs of massive customer defections or drastically worsened credit terms . still , rival traders are wary . " we certainly have taken a closer look at enron in the last week to 10 days and will continue to manage the credit risk , but we ' re still doing business with the company as usual , " says keith g . stamm , ceo of power and gas trader aquila inc . ( ila )\r\n" speeding train . " still , with the stock battered and rating agencies considering further downgrades , that could rapidly change . in recent days , the uncertainty about enron ' s future has reduced investors ' appetite for enron debt . " no one wants to speculate on the direction or their likelihood of survival , " says a credit - derivatives salesperson . " it ' s really difficult to get in front of a speeding train . "\r\neven if lay can calm his trading partners , he and his management team face a much tougher task of restoring their credibility on wall street . with the stock now hovering around $ 14 - - down from a high of $ 90 in august , 2000 - - some even believe that enron could be a takeover target for the likes of ge capital or royal dutch / shell group . ( rd ) both declined to comment . would enron sell ? one source close to the company says enron has talked about possible mergers and strategic alliances in the past with royal dutch / shell , among others . " if they ' re really worried about liquidity , they might take the easy way out , " he says .\r\nif enron does pull through this crisis , some suspect it will be a humbler , more risk - averse place . the company that once believed it could expand its trading and logistics empire to all manner of commodities - - from advertising space to steel - - will be forced to scale back its grandiose visions . that ' s something some investors applaud . " the company should focus on its strengths , " says william n . adams , senior energy analyst at banc of america capital management , a major shareholder . but that ' s a far less exciting place than enron ' s energy cowboys ever hoped to roam .\r\nby stephanie anderson forest and wendy zellner in dallas , with heather timmons in new york\r\nnovember 12 , 2001\r\nfinance\r\nbusiness week\r\nderivatives danger ?\r\nlately , owners of enron ' s ( ene ) equity , bonds , and loans have been struggling to understand how exposed the company is to risks of losses that they didn ' t know about before . now , as a fuller picture of enron ' s entanglements with partnerships begins to emerge , investors have something else to worry about : credit default swaps , known as cdss for short .\r\nthat ' s financial marketspeak for insurance on bonds and bank loans . their owners pay a premium for coverage that reimburses them for any losses they have if their investments go bad . the cds market has existed only for about two years , but it ' s growing fast . goldman , sachs & co . ( gs ) and others estimate that bonds and loans with a face value of between $ 1 trillion and $ 1 . 5 trillion are covered . not surprisingly , big banks with hefty balance sheets such as j . p . morgan chase ( jpm ) , merrill lynch ( mer ) , and deutsche bank ( db ) dominate the market .\r\nenron , however , is a player - - and the only significant one that isn ' t also a bank . competitors say that although enron has issued only between $ 500 million and $ 700 million worth of cdss so far this year , it had ambitious plans to offer them online . " they don ' t belong in this market , " says one trader . " they don ' t understand the implications . " enron did not return calls seeking comment .\r\nof course , neither enron nor others will have to pay out unless the loans and bonds they ' re insuring turn bad . trouble is , this year is potentially a doozie for losses on corporate debt . corporate defaults could reach a record of $ 100 billion , says standard & poor ' s , like businessweek a unit of the mcgraw - hill companies . regulators say shaky bank loans hit a record $ 193 billion by early october .\r\nif enron has insured any of the bad debt , it might have to take charges for losses if they exceed the premiums it has been getting . with all that has been happening in recent weeks , that ' s the last thing it needs .\r\nby heather timmons in new york\r\nnovember 12 , 2001\r\nfinance\r\nby mike mcnamee\r\ncommentary : enron ' s clout won ' t sway the sec\r\nfor securities & exchange commission chairman harvey l . pitt , the sec ' s investigation into enron corp . ( ene ) could hardly have come at a worse time . the future of pitt ' s ambitious agenda of reforms in securities regulation could depend on how well he handles this case .\r\nenron ' s political clout and close ties to president george w . bush create real risks for the sec . enron ceo kenneth l . lay is a longtime bush backer , and the company was the biggest corporate contributor to the president ' s campaign . a bush appointee , pitt is attempting a delicate balancing act . he has made it clear he wants to speed up the sec ' s enforcement , in part by rewarding companies that cooperate with probes . but he insists the sec will still come down hard on true corporate miscreants - - and knows that any signs of let - up could jeopardize the rest of his reform agenda .\r\nenter the enron probe . the fine shadings of securities enforcement - - where most cases are settled by negotiated penalties , not court - imposed fines - - often make it hard for outsiders to tell whether the sec is being tough or lenient . but pitt must go out of his way to make it clear that the enron case is handled by the book - - getting the same strict scrutiny from the sec as any other , less connected company .\r\nfor now , top sec aides say that ' s happening . the sec enforcement div . in washington is looking into whether enron adequately disclosed to shareholders the risks of its complex deals with andrew s . fastow , the company ' s former chief financial officer . agency insiders say pitt and his fellow commissioners will be briefed on the case as it proceeds . but they insist pitt hasn ' t heard from the white house or enron ' s other political allies .\r\ntop lobbyist . enron ' s connections are numerous . besides lay ' s links to bush , an enron director , wendy lee gramm , is the wife of texas senator phil gramm , top republican on the senate banking committee . and enron spreads its lobbying budget - - $ 2 . 13 million in 2000 - - across both parties . just this year it hired four lobbying firms with democratic roots . enron says it lobbies heavily because it operates in regulated industries . it notes that electric utilities outspend it 35 to 1 .\r\non oct . 31 , a special committee of enron ' s board hired william r . mclucas , former sec enforcement director , to represent it . mclucas should know that any attempt to muscle the stock cops is likely to backfire . pitt , who joined the sec out of law school in 1968 , " remembers how the [ nixon - era ] sec tainted itself by turning a blind eye to [ fugitive financier ] robert vesco , " says an agency veteran . pitt has too much riding on the enron probe to let its connections sway his judgment .\r\nmcnamee covers finance in washington .\r\nafl - cio , amalgamated bank call on enron to redirect the mission of newly created special committee : outside directors must adopt independent role\r\n11 / 02 / 2001\r\npr newswire\r\n( copyright ( c ) 2001 , pr newswire )\r\nwashington , nov . 2 / prnewswire / - - in a shareholder letter sent today to the board of directors of the enron corporation ( nyse : ene ) , the afl - cio and the amalgamated bank called on enron to expand the mission of its newly created special committee and for enron ' s board to adopt a package of reforms designed to restore investor confidence in the battered energy firm . america ' s working families are significant shareholders of enron stock through their pension , health and welfare benefit funds .\r\namong other suggestions , the letter urges the board to expand the special committee ' s mandate to : * examine all transactions with entities in which enron employees\r\nor directors have an interest\r\n* adopt procedures for reviewing insider participation in investments\r\n* commence an extraordinary review of executive compensation\r\n* adopt a stricter definition of director independence and disclose\r\ndirector conflicts of interest\r\n" the special committee ' s mandate is far too narrow to address the current crisis , " said richard trumka , secretary - treasurer of the afl - cio . " in light of enron ' s recent balance sheet write - downs , share price decline , and credit rating deterioration , the special committee must be forward looking and consider sweeping governance reform measures , " he explained .\r\n" in this time of crisis , outside directors must reform enron ' s traditional lack of transparency and communicate directly with shareholders , " said gabriel caprio , president and ceo of the amalgamated bank . " this is particularly important since several outside directors have apparent conflicts of interest that compromise their objectivity , " he added .\r\nafl - cio affiliate unions sponsor benefit funds with over $ 400 billion in assets and hold an estimated 3 . 1 million enron shares . the afl - cio is joined in its call for reform by the amalgamated bank , the trustee of the longview funds which hold 251 , 304 shares of enron . the amalgamated bank ' s longview funds are collective investment trusts that manage equity assets on behalf of workers ' benefit funds .\r\na copy of the letter sent to enron ' s board of directors is available by contacting the afl - cio office of investment at 202 - 637 - 3900 or online at http : / / www . shareholdervalue . org .\r\nmake your opinion count - click here\r\n/ contact : lane windham , + 1 - 202 - 637 - 5018 , or bill patterson , + 1 - 202 - 637 - 3900 , both of afl - cio / 13 : 39 est\r\ncopyright ? 2000 dow jones & company , inc . all rights reserved .\r\nwilliams ceo sees validation of co ' s bandwidth model\r\n11 / 02 / 2001\r\ndow jones energy service\r\n( copyright ( c ) 2001 , dow jones & company , inc . )\r\nhouston - ( dow jones ) - at the beginning of the year , two telecommunications units born of energy companies seemed to symbolize the different ways to sell bandwidth .\r\nenron corp .

( ene ) needs nothing less than a home run just to stay in the game .\r\nthis is the home run enron must come up with : full disclosure of the assets and liabilities of those troubled partnerships that have been kept off their balance sheet , and proof the corporation can cover the difference . it ' s what stockholders , bondholders and trading partners have been demanding , but time is running out , and enron hasn ' t produced .\r\n" we ' re going to get to that number soon and tell people . we have to do that , " said a source at enron , who didn ' t know how quickly the disclosure would come or whether it would be independently audited . " in this environment , we are going to be absolutely sure that it ' s accurate . "\r\nenron has about $ 3 . 3 billion in debt on the two key partnerships payable in 2003 . the company will sell the assets in those partnerships and , in a worse case scenario , will face a $ 1 billion shortfall that could be covered by selling stock and other company assets , enron has said . the company hopes that when the time comes to issue new stock , shares will be trading closer to $ 20 than their current $ 11 .\r\ninvestors , however , aren ' t acting as if they ' re reassured . part of the trouble , analysts with credit - rating firm standard & poor ' s said friday morning , is that until enron sells the assets , nobody knows for sure what they ' re worth or how deep the partnerships are in the hole .\r\ns & p is confident that enron can raise enough capital to fill that hole , provided its trading partners in key energy markets continue to business with the company .\r\ncredit derivative fizzle\r\nto see the pickle the world ' s premier energy franchise is in , one needs to look no further than its credit derivatives trading desk . that relatively new and innovative operation was getting off the ground nicely , but the desk hasn ' t been able to transact for three weeks , since the value of enron ' s stock and bonds began to plummet , according to another enron employee .\r\nenron didn ' t respond to a request for comment , but the enron credit division in europe said in a release that lines are " constrained " as the market continues to evaluate the company ' s credit position .\r\nuntil recently , customers would buy a credit derivative from enron to cover its exposure to bankruptcy by a third company . a big supplier to a financially troubled company like xerox corp . ( xrx ) or lucent technologies ( lu ) , for example , might pay enron $ 1 million a year for a payout of , say , $ 10 million in the event of a bankruptcy .\r\nbut you wouldn ' t pay the premium on your insurance unless you were sure that the insurance company could pay your claims . likewise , with enron ' s creditworthiness in doubt , there ' s no reason to pay a lot of money just to exchange lucent risk for enron risk .\r\nthe same holds true , though less obviously , for enron ' s core business of energy trading . some utilities , large industrial companies and other energy trading companies could see their profits ruined if natural gas prices - already on the rise at $ 3 per million british thermal units - shoot to $ 10 this winter as they did last winter .\r\nto guard against that risk , companies buy contracts now for delivery this winter at set prices . if a company wants to lock in winter gas at $ 3 , should it turn to enron ? if gas were to rise to $ 10 in january and enron couldn ' t deliver , enron ' s counterparty paid a good price for no protection . and if enron failed in a $ 10 gas market , that would send hundreds of companies scrambling for supplies . gas could go to $ 20 in a heartbeat .\r\nleading role an asset\r\nenron does have a man on base . the company is so important to energy market participants that they desperately want enron to survive . and any company that moves to lock enron out of the market now could regret doing so if enron survives as the big dog .\r\nenron ' s trading partners have a pretty consistent position at this point : they are continuing to trade with enron , but are avoiding long - term deals that increase their exposure to the company . the only acceptable long - term deals are those that offset deals done earlier . unless and until a bill goes unpaid , they ' ll keep delivering .\r\nenron , like the rest of the u . s . energy industry , paid its bills for september gas deliveries on oct . 20 and for its september electricity deliveries on oct . 25 . its next power and gas bills come due in the third week of november .\r\nthat means trading companies generally have just seven weeks of receivables at risk before enron ' s creditworthiness faces another test . in exchange for taking on that small risk , they keep the great market maker in business .\r\nlenders show concerns\r\nlenders , whether through holding enron bonds or providing loans , don ' t have the same luxury as energy trading companies that are keeping deals on a short leash . lenders supply cash up front and for longer periods of time , usually years .\r\noutside of long - term commitments , what worries the banks , which presumably got a good look at enron ' s books ? if enron is now unable to make the big bets with long - term energy deals that have kept it profitable for years , can it service all of its liabilities , known and unknown ? if it has to sell profitable assets like pipelines and power plants , or otherwise put those assets at risk , will lower earnings be enough to pay rising credit costs ? what happens if its greatest asset - its traders - leave in droves to work elsewhere ?\r\nif enron is to have a chance , it needs energy trading profits to keep rolling in so that it can continue to service its debt . so far this year , trading and other wholesale operations have accounted for $ 2 . 2 billion out of $ 2 . 4 billion in net recurring income before interest and taxes . by comparison , enron has made $ 617 million in interest payments so far this year .\r\nj . p . morgan chase 201 - 938 - 4604 ; mark . golden @ dowjones . com\r\ncopyright ? 2000 dow jones & company , inc . all rights reserved .\r\nenron says it remains ' biggest ' player in eu gas , power\r\n11 / 02 / 2001\r\ndow jones energy service\r\n( copyright ( c ) 2001 , dow jones & company , inc . )\r\nlondon - ( dow jones ) - enron corp .

trainデータは非スパム側にかなり偏っていることがわかります
一方で,testデータはスパム側に偏っていることがわかります(公式の発表より)
この不均衡に対してどう対処するかがこのコンペの鍵になりそうです

トークン分割後の分析

contentsをトークン分割した後の分析をします tokenizerとしてtransformersbert-base-uncased用に学習されたtokenizerを使います
また,\r\nなどの改行コードは分割の段階で自動的に除去されるらしいです(詳しい仕様は要確認)

トークン数

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(MODEL_NAME, use_fast=True)
train_df['num_word'] = train_df['contents'].apply(lambda x:len(tokenizer.encode(x, truncation=False)))
test_df['num_word'] = test_df['contents'].apply(lambda x:len(tokenizer.encode(x, truncation=False)))
train_df.head()

print(f'longer than 512 (train): {len(train_df[train_df["num_word"]>512].index)} / {len(train_df.index)}')

トークン数が512を超えるテキストがかなりの割合で存在します
BERTなどの,入力トークン数に制限があるモデルを使用する場合は工夫が必要そうです

トークン数の分布

hist_data = [train_df["num_word"][train_df["num_word"]<3000],\
             test_df["num_word"][test_df["num_word"]<3000]]
