About Event

Join us for a workshop on Fine-Tuning 101: From LLMs to Embeddings!

Most of the time when you’re building LLM applications, you have two places to go for leveraging models: OpenAI and Hugging Face.

While OpenAI models are powerful, easy to use, and can be fine-tuned via their API, Hugging Face provides open-source models that can be leveraged and fine-tuned with some additional setup. Emerging tools like Gradient are now providing a streamlined way to host and fine-tune customized open-source models securely and access them directly through API endpoints.

In this event, we’ll demonstrate these new capabilities that aspiring AI engineers should be adding to their tool belt with two use cases: 1) an open-source Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) system with LangChain and Llama 2, and 2) instruct-tuning Llama 2. We will also host our embeddings model directly on Gradient, in such a way that it can be easily fine-tuned once the new capability is released!

As always, all concepts and code will be shared live for you to follow along with during the event!

Special thanks to Gradient for partnering with us on this event!

Who should attend the event?

  • Aspiring AI Engineers interested in fine-tuning open-source LLMs

  • Learners who want to understand fine-tuning use cases

  • Practitioners who want to get hands-on with the Gradient developer platform
