About Fine-Tuning

A good prompt along with some context examples can get you far, but sometimes you need to fine-tune a model to get the best results. Fine-tuning is the process of training a base model on a new dataset to adapt it to a specific task.

Advantages of Fine-Tuning

There are several advantages to fine-tuning a model, including:

  • Improved performance: Fine-tuned models perform better on specific tasks than base models, even when they are fed great prompts and context examples.
  • Reduced cost: Fine-tuned models require less input data and examples (tokens) to perform, which can save time and money.
  • Easier to Use: Fine-tuned models are easier to use and require less input from the user to generate accurate results.

GenAI Studio offers fine-tuning on a curated list of foundation models.

Model Creation Journey

Fine-tuning should happen after you have created a project and tested various combinations of generation properties and prompt inputs against your chosen uploaded dataset.
