introduction to instructlab


Join us for an exciting online introduction class on “Introduction to InstructLab AI“.

The session will be hosted by Sander van Vugt on May 31st at 5 PM and will last for one hour.
Participation is free and will show you how to run an AI on your laptop. This session is for you if you want to explore how generative AI is working, and how to get started with it.

InstructLab is an innovative open source project created by IBM and Red Hat to enhance large language models (LLMs) used in generative artificial intelligence (gen AI) applications.
It provides a cost-effective solution for improving LLM alignment and opens the door for contributors with minimal machine learning experience.

What does InstructLab do?

InstructLab enhances LLMs like chatbots and coding assistants by:
– Allowing less expensive and resource-intensive fine-tuning.
– Enabling continuous improvement from community contributions.
– Reducing the need for large amounts of human-generated data.

How does InstructLab work?

InstructLab uses the LAB method, which includes:
1. Taxonomy-driven data curation: Human-curated training data examples.
2. Large-scale synthetic data generation: Creating new examples and refining them for quality.
3. Iterative, large-scale alignment tuning: Retraining the model with synthetic data.

How is InstructLab different?

InstructLab stands out by:
– Utilizing fewer human-generated examples compared to traditional methods.
– Enhancing LLMs continuously with community contributions.
– Being model-agnostic, allowing supplemental fine-tuning for various LLMs.

Comparison to Other Methods:

– Pretraining: Involves large-scale, resource-intensive training.
– Alignment Tuning: InstructLab uses fewer human examples for significant improvements.
– Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG): Focuses on supplementing LLMs with domain-specific knowledge without retraining, while InstructLab enhances and unlocks new skills.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the transformative InstructLab project and how you can contribute to and benefit from it. Register now and join us for an enlightening session!
