Fine-tuning Large Language Models

This course is an interactive deep dive into modern NLP tasks, including fine-tuning pre-trained models, understanding the mechanisms of large language models for text generation, and powering AI assistants. Hands-on, practical modules will equip you with essential skills in data preparation, tokenization, model training, and evaluation. By the end of the course you'll create your very own AI assistant using supervised fine-tuning.
