Efficient continual pre-training LLMs for financial domains

Large language models (LLMs) are generally trained on large publicly available datasets that are domain agnostic. For example, Meta’s Llama models are trained on datasets such as CommonCrawl, C4, Wikipedia, and ArXiv. These datasets encompass a broad range of topics and domains. Although the resulting models yield amazingly good results for general tasks, such as […]

Efficiently fine-tune the ESM-2 protein language model with Amazon SageMaker

In this post, we demonstrate how to efficiently fine-tune a state-of-the-art protein language model (pLM) to predict protein subcellular localization using Amazon SageMaker. Proteins are the molecular machines of the body, responsible for everything from moving your muscles to responding to infections. Despite this variety, all proteins are made of repeating chains of molecules called […]

Deploy large language models for a healthtech use case on Amazon SageMaker

In this post, we show how to develop an ML-driven solution using Amazon SageMaker for detecting adverse events using the publicly available Adverse Drug Reaction Dataset on Hugging Face. In this solution, we fine-tune a variety of models on Hugging Face that were pre-trained on medical data and use the BioBERT model, which was pre-trained on the Pubmed dataset and performs the best out of those tried.
