Teaching a Language Model from scratch is a challenging task that requires a lot of time and effort. It can take months to understand why fine-tuned models fail and to go through the iteration cycles for fine-tuning on small datasets. However, using the Lamini library, any developer, regardless of their machine learning skills, can train high-performing Language Models (LLMs) that are on par with ChatGPT in just a few lines of code.
Lamini.ai has released this library to make it easy for developers to train LLMs on massive datasets. The library includes optimizations like RLHF (Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback) and hallucination suppression. By using Lamini, developers can compare different base models with just one line of code, from OpenAI models to open-source ones on HuggingFace.
To develop your own LLM using Lamini, follow these steps:
1. Use Lamini’s fine-tuned prompts and text outputs feature.
2. Take advantage of easy fine-tuning and RLHF with the Lamini library.
3. Utilize Lamini as the first hosted data generator approved for commercial usage, specifically for creating data required to train instruction-following LLMs.
4. Benefit from a free and open-source LLM that can follow instructions with minimal programming effort.
While the base models’ understanding of English is sufficient for consumer use cases, there are situations where teaching them industry jargon and standards requires developing your own LLM.
To achieve similar results to ChatGPT with LLMs, follow these steps:
1. Use ChatGPT’s prompt adjustment or another model that has been optimized for easy use with Lamini.
2. Create a large amount of input-output data to demonstrate how the LLM should react to different types of data.
3. Adjust the starting model using your extensive data, which can be easily done with Lamini.
4. Put the finely-adjusted model through RLHF without the need for a large ML and HL staff.
5. Deploy the LLM in the cloud by invoking the API’s endpoint in your application.
After training the Pythia basic model and releasing an open-source instruction-following LLM with Lamini, the team aims to simplify the training process for engineering teams and improve the performance of LLMs. They hope to empower more people to construct these models beyond just tinkering with prompts by making iteration cycles faster and more efficient.
