1x5 Gear Up Your AI_ Fine-Tuning LLMs

This blog post focuses on new features and improvements. For a comprehensive list, including bug fixes, please see the release notes.

Fine-Tuning Large Language Models using the Clarifai Platform

Fine-tuning allows you to adapt foundational text-to-text models to specific tasks or domains, making them more suitable for particular applications. By training on task-specific data, you can improve model performance on those tasks.

Fine-tuning lets you take advantage of transfer learning and utilize the knowledge gained from a pre-trained text model to facilitate the learning process of a new model for a related problem.

Select a pre-configured model template you want to use to train on your data. You can choose from the following templates:

  • Llama2 7/13B or Mistral models with GPTQ-Lora, featuring enhanced support for quantized/mixed-precision training techniques.
  • GPT-Neo model, either the 125 million parameters version or the 2.7 billion parameters version.
Optionally, you may configure the training and inference settings to enhance the performance of your model. Checkout the complete guide on Fine-tuning Large Language Models here.

Added TypeScript (Node.js) SDK code snippets to the Use Model / Workflow modal window

If you want to use a model or a workflow for making API calls, you need to click the Use Model / Workflow button at the upper right corner of the individual page of a model or workflow. The modal that pops up has snippets in various programming languages, which you can copy and use.

  • We introduced TypeScript SDK code snippets as one of the tabs. Users can now conveniently access and copy the code snippets directly from the modal.

Added a feature that redirects users to their previous page after logging in

  • If you are logged out, you will now be taken back to the page you were on after logging in.

Introduced the ability to add users who are not organization members to teams

  • This enhancement allows for greater flexibility in team composition and collaboration.

Redesigned the user activation form for new Clarifai accounts

  • After signing up, users receive a verification email. Clicking the link in the email redirects them to the Clarifai platform to complete their profile details.

Apps / Templates

Improved the handling of unauthenticated users

If a user is not logged in or lacks access to the app:

  • We hide the Inputs block and its values. So, the user cannot see the inputs details on the App Overview page.
  • We direct the user to available public resources (e.g. models) without prompting for a login.

Added a "Reindex" checkbox in the "Change Base Workflow" section

Made improvements in the app settings page

  • Removed extra spaces in the tables within the API Keys and Collaborators sections on the app settings page for a cleaner and more streamlined layout.

Expanded the list of available workflows when creating a new application

  • You can now choose from a broader selection of base workflows to better suit your needs.

Improved ability to select a version of a resource

  • We introduced a standardized version selection feature across the platform, now available on both the Model-Viewer and Dataset-Viewer pages. This feature allows you to select and view specific versions of your resources using truncated digits and dates for easy identification.

Fixed an issue with the left sidebar

  • We fixed an issue where the left sidebar on the Input-Manager and Input-Viewer was not scrollable. Previously, this made it difficult to access all sidebar content. With this improvement, the left sidebar is now scrollable, allowing you to easily bring all parts into view.
