How to Build Custom Language Models with evoML

Language models have become an integral part of various applications, ranging from chatbots and virtual assistants to text generation and translation. While foundation models like OpenAI’s GPT-4 have been incredibly useful, the need for custom language models tailored to specific domains and requirements is growing rapidly. This increase is due to the massive size of these models which makes them slow to run in production coupled with emerging concerns around data privacy and security. In this article, we will explore how evoML enables the creation of highly specialised language models, unlocking a world of possibilities for natural language processing.

Understanding evoML

evoML is an advanced AI model generation and optimisation platform that allows you to build and fine-tune your own custom LLMs. It combines the power of evolutionary algorithms, deep learning techniques, and automated hyperparameter optimisation to enable the creation of highly accurate and domain-specific language models.

🛠 How It Works 

  1. Data Collection: The first step in building a custom LLM is to gather relevant data. evoML supports various data sources, including text documents, websites, and databases so users can easily connect to their preferred data source in a few clicks. Curating a high-quality dataset that represents the target domain is crucial for training an accurate model.
  2. Preprocessing and Annotation: Once the data is collected, it needs to be preprocessed and annotated. Preprocessing involves tasks like text cleaning, normalisation, and tokenisation. Annotation involves labelling the data with appropriate tags, categories, or entities to assist the model in understanding and generating meaningful content. evoML can significantly accelerate these usually time-consuming processes freeing up your team’s time to focus on more challenging tasks. It reduces human error, saves time, and thus, increases productivity and profitability.
  3. Training the Model: evoML utilises various techniques to train custom LLMs. The platform employs advanced neural network architectures, such as recurrent neural networks (RNNs) or transformers, that enable a more thorough understanding of your data’s complex structure. By employing evolutionary algorithms to optimise hyperparameters, evoML ensures that your model achieves the best possible performance, enhancing its accuracy and reliability.
  4. Fine-tuning and Evaluation: After the initial training, fine-tuning the model with your own data is crucial. This process helps the LLM adapt to the specific language patterns and requirements of the target domain. The key benefit at this stage is the flexibility and control offered by evoML. You are not only able to fine-tune according to your specific needs and outcomes but also have full ownership of your model code. This protects data privacy, assures security, and offers customisation options for speed and hardware specifications, tailoring the model to your exact requirements. It leads to more accurate results, better compliance with regulations, and higher satisfaction with the product’s performance.
  5. Deployment: Once the custom LLM is trained and fine-tuned using evoML, it can be deployed to various applications and services. TurinTech offers seamless integration with popular frameworks and APIs, allowing you to integrate your models into existing software solutions effortlessly. This enables businesses to leverage the power of custom LLMs in real-world scenarios, such as automated document analysis, content generation, or predictive maintenance.

Benefits of evoML for Building Custom LLMs

  1. Improved Accuracy: evoML enables developers to create LLMs that can better understand and generate domain-specific language. By training the model on relevant data, it can learn the nuances, jargon, and context-specific to a particular domain, leading to improved accuracy in various language processing tasks.
  2. Data Privacy and Security: With custom LLMs, sensitive data can remain within the organisation’s infrastructure. By training models on internal datasets, companies can maintain data privacy and security, ensuring compliance with regulations and avoiding potential risks associated with sharing proprietary information. Furthermore, customers have full ownership of the code generated.
  3. Reduced Dependency: Developing your own language model gives you control over all the variables, such as architecture, training data, and the ability to tweak the model as needed. This means you can update your model as soon as you have new data without having to wait for a new release from a third-party AI company.
  4. Reduced Latency: Using pre-trained language models often involves making API calls to external servers, which can introduce latency in AI-driven applications. By building custom language models with evoML, developers can deploy the models directly on local servers or edge devices, drastically reducing response times and enhancing user experiences. Furthermore, evoML optimises the source code of the model specifically for the hardware that it will run on further reducing latency.
  5. Uncovering Insights: Training a custom language model using evoML involves analysing and understanding the specific domain’s data thoroughly. This process can reveal valuable insights and patterns in the data, contributing to a better understanding of the domain itself. These insights can be used for business intelligence and decision-making processes beyond just the AI model.

TurinTech’s evoML empowers businesses to create and deploy highly specialised LLMs tailored to specific domains. With evoML, the possibilities for natural language processing and understanding are expanded, as organisations can harness the full potential of custom LLMs.
