Training large language models on Amazon SageMaker: Best practices

Language models are statistical methods predicting the succession of tokens in sequences, using natural text. Large language models (LLMs) are neural network-based language models with hundreds of millions (BERT) to over a trillion parameters (MiCS), and whose size makes single-GPU training impractical. LLMs’ generative abilities make them popular for text synthesis, summarization, machine translation, and […]
