Unleash the power of LLMs without breaking the bank! In this workshop, dive into Parameter-efficient Fine-tuning (PEFT), the key to adapting giants like GPT for your tasks, without their monstrous resource demands. Learn cutting-edge techniques like LoRA, adapters, and prompt tuning to achieve impressive results using just a fraction of the parameters. Master efficient training, resource optimization, and model selection for real-world applications. Leave equipped to unlock the true potential of LLMs, even on limited budgets and hardware. So, join us and tame the computational beast for precise, efficient, and accessible LLM fine-tuning!
