How to Efficiently Train Huge Transformer LLMs

October 30, 2023


In the realm of natural language processing, Transformer-based language models have revolutionized the way we understand and generate text. These models have grown in size and complexity, giving rise to ‘Huge Transformer Language Models’ (LLMs) that are capable of achieving state-of-the-art performance on a wide range of NLP tasks. However, training such massive models efficiently is no small feat. In this guide, we will explore the efficient training techniques for huge Transformer LLMs like Llama-2 and get an overview of the architecture of four remarkable models: Llama2-180B, Guanaco-65B, BLOOM-176B, and Falcon-180B.

Every LLM possesses the below shown basic architecture:

Key Strategies and Techniques While Training LLMs

  1. Data Preparation

Efficiently training large LLMs starts with high-quality data preparation. A clean and well-structured dataset is essential for model convergence and performance. Consider the following data preparation steps:

a. Data Collection: Gather a diverse and extensive corpus of text data from various sources, ensuring that it covers the domains and languages you intend to work with.

b. Data Cleaning: Remove noise, irrelevant content, and duplicate entries from your dataset. This step helps reduce the model's training time and improves its overall performance.

c. Tokenization: Use efficient tokenization techniques to split text into smaller units, such as words or subword pieces. This reduces the vocabulary size and memory requirements, making training more manageable.

  1. Distributed Computing

Training huge Transformer LLMs requires significant computational power. Distributed computing plays a crucial role in efficiently utilizing hardware resources:

a. Parallelization: Distribute the training data and computation across multiple GPUs or TPUs. Technologies like data parallelism and model parallelism allow you to train large models efficiently.

b. Distributed Training Frameworks: Utilize frameworks like PyTorch's DistributedDataParallel or TensorFlow's MirroredStrategy to implement distributed training. These frameworks simplify the process of scaling up your training process.

  1. Model Architectures

Selecting the right architecture is crucial when training large LLMs:

a. Model Size: Determine the appropriate model size based on your specific task and hardware constraints. Consider variants like GPT-3, GPT-4, or even custom architectures.

b. Pruning: Implement model pruning techniques to remove unnecessary parameters and reduce the model's memory footprint. This can lead to more efficient training and deployment.

  1. Regularization Techniques

To prevent overfitting and stabilize training, consider using various regularization techniques:

a. Dropout: Apply dropout layers to prevent over-reliance on specific neurons and improve the model's generalization ability.

b. Layer Normalization: Normalize activations within each layer to stabilize training and improve convergence.

c. Gradient Clipping: Limit the gradients during training to prevent exploding gradients, especially in deep architectures.

  1. Data Augmentation

Augment your training data to improve model robustness:

a. Text Augmentation: Generate synthetic data through techniques like back-translation, word replacement, or paraphrasing. This increases the diversity of your training set.

b. Curriculum Learning: Start training with simpler tasks or cleaner data and gradually increase the complexity. This helps the model converge faster.

  1. Early Stopping and Monitoring

Implement early stopping to prevent overfitting and monitor training progress:

a. Validation Metrics: Continuously track validation metrics during training. Stop training when the model's performance plateaus or starts degrading on the validation set.

b. Checkpoints: Save model checkpoints at regular intervals to ensure you can resume training from a stable point in case of unexpected interruptions.

Tutorial 1: Fine-Tuning an LLM (Large Language Model) with Auto Train

In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the process of fine-tuning a Large Language Model (LLM) on your own dataset using the Auto Train library from Hugging Face. The best part is that you can achieve this with just a single line of code. We'll also show you how to run this process using E2E Cloud’s TIR platform, making it accessible even if you don't have access to a powerful GPU. Let's get started!


Before we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  • Python version greater than 3.8
  • An NVIDIA GPU (required for fine-tuning)
  • A Hugging Face account with an access token (to authenticate the process)

Step 1: Install Auto Train

First, you need to install the Auto Train Advanced package from the Hugging Face GitHub repository. You can do this by running the following command in your TIR notebook or remove ‘!’ while using in the terminal:

!pip install autotrain-advanced
!pip install huggingface_hub

This will install the necessary package for fine-tuning and then run the following command.

!autotrain setup --update-torch

Step 2: Authenticate with Hugging Face

To authenticate with Hugging Face, you'll need an access token. Here's how to get it:

  1. Go to your Hugging Face account.
  2. Navigate to ‘Settings’ and click on ‘Access Tokens’.
  3. Create a new token or copy an existing one.

(Link to Huggingface)

Back in your notebook, run the following code and enter your token when prompted:

from huggingface_hub import   notebook_login

This step will ensure that you can access your Hugging Face account for model saving and sharing.

Step 3: Define Your Fine-Tuning Configuration

Now, let's break down the single line of code you'll use for fine-tuning. Here's the basic structure:

!autotrain train \
    --llm \
    --train \
    --project "your_project_name" \
    --model "model_name" \
    --data_path "path_to_your_dataset" \
    --text_column "your_text_column" \
    --use_apex \
    --learning_rate 1e-4 \
    --train_batch_size 2 \
    --num_train_epochs 3 \
    --trainer sft \
    --model_max_length 2048 \
    --block_size 512 \
    --save_dir "./output"

Let's break down these options:

  • --llm: Specifies that you want to fine-tune a Large Language Model.
  • --train: Indicates that you want to train the model.
  • --project: Choose a name for your project.
  • --model: Specify the base model you want to fine-tune (e.g., ‘llama2180B’).
  • --data_path: Provide the path or Hugging Face dataset ID.
  • --text_column: Set the column name containing text data.
  • --use_apex: Use mixed-precision training (recommended for faster training).
  • --learning_rate: Adjust the learning rate (e.g., 1e-4).
  • --train_batch_size: Define your batch size.
  • --num_train_epochs: Set the number of training epochs.
  • --trainer sft: Use supervised fine-tuning.
  • --model_max_length: Define the maximum token length.
  • --block_size: Set the block size for training.
  • --save_dir: Specify the output directory for the trained model.

The command !autotrain llm you provided is used for fine-tuning a language model using Autotrain. Let's break down the different components of this command in more detail:

  • !autotrain llm: This is the main command for fine-tuning a language model using Autotrain.
  • --train: This flag indicates that you want to start the training process.
  • --project_name ‘FineTuning Llama-2’: This sets the name of your fine-tuning project. In this case, it's named ‘FineTuning Llama-2’.
  • --model TinyPixel/Llama-2-180B-bf16-sharded: Specifies the base model you want to fine-tune. In this case, you're fine-tuning the ‘Llama-2’ model provided by the user ‘TinyPixel’.
  • --data_path timdettmers/openassistant-guanaco: This is the path to the training data you want to use. It appears that you're using data from the user ‘timdettmers’ with the repository ‘openassistant-guanaco’.
  • --use_peft and --use_int4: These flags likely enable certain optimizations or configurations during training. Without additional context, it's challenging to specify their exact purpose.
  • --learning_rate 2e-4: Sets the learning rate for the training process. The learning rate determines how quickly the model's weights are updated during training. A smaller learning rate like 2e-4 means smaller steps, which can lead to more stable training but might require more epochs.
  • --train_batch_size 2: Specifies the batch size for training. Training is typically performed on mini-batches of data. A batch size of 2 means that the model will process two examples at a time during each training iteration.
  • --num_train_epochs 3: This parameter specifies the number of training epochs. An epoch is one complete pass through the entire training dataset. In this case, you're training for 3 epochs.
  • --trainer sft: This parameter specifies the training method or trainer to use. ‘sft’ likely stands for ‘Stochastic Few-Tokens’ or a similar method, but the exact details would depend on the Autotrain framework and model-specific settings.
  • --model_max_length 2048: Sets the maximum sequence length for the model. In this case, sequences longer than 2048 tokens will be truncated or processed differently during training.

Once you run this command, Autotrain will initiate the fine-tuning process with the specified settings. The model will be fine-tuned on the provided training data for the specified number of epochs, using the specified learning rate and other configurations. The final fine-tuned model will be saved, and you can use it for various natural language processing tasks.

Keep in mind that the success of the fine-tuning process depends on the quality and quantity of your training data, the chosen hyperparameters, and the computational resources available for training.

Step 4: Start Fine-Tuning

After defining your configuration, execute the fine-tuning process by running the single line of code in your TIR notebook or local environment (remove the exclamation mark if not using TIR).

The process will start by tokenizing your dataset and training the model. Be patient, as this may take some time, especially with larger datasets. Dataset used below is openassistant-guanaco.

!autotrain llm --train --project_name "FineTuning Llama-2" --model Riiid/sheep-duck-llama-2-70b-v1.1 --data_path timdettmers/openassistant-guanaco --use_peft --use_int4 --learning_rate 2e-4 --train_batch_size 2 --num_train_epochs 3 --trainer sft --model_max_length 2048

Step 5: Accessing Your Trained Model

Once the training process is complete, you can access your trained model from the output directory you specified in the --save_dir parameter.


Congratulations! You've successfully fine-tuned a Large Language Model on your own dataset using the Auto Train library from Hugging Face. You can now use this model for various natural language processing tasks. Remember that the choice of model, dataset format, and hyperparameters may vary depending on your specific use case. Fine-tuning models can be resource-intensive, so be sure to optimize your setup based on your available hardware and dataset size.

Tutorial 2: Text Generation Using Hugging Face Transformers

In this tutorial, we will walk through the process of setting up and using the Hugging Face Transformers library to generate text using a pre-trained language model called ‘Bloom-560m’. This model can be used for various natural language processing tasks, including text generation.

Step 1: Install Required Packages

Before we can begin, we need to install the necessary Python packages. Open your Jupyter Notebook or code editor and execute the following commands:

!pip install torch
!pip install transformers

These commands will install the Torch library for PyTorch and the Transformers library, which includes various pretrained models for natural language processing tasks.

Step 2: Import Required Libraries

Now, let's import the libraries we'll be using in our code. Execute the following code:

import transformers
from transformers import BloomForCausalLM
from transformers import BloomForTokenClassification
from transformers import BloomTokenizerFast
import torch

These imports allow us to use the pretrained Bloom-560m model and related tools for text generation.

Step 3: Load the Pretrained Model and Tokenizer

Next, we'll load the pretrained ‘Bloom-560m’ model and its associated tokenizer. The model will be used for text generation, and the tokenizer is essential for encoding and decoding text. Execute the following code:

tokenizer = BloomTokenizerFast.from_pretrained("bigscience/bloom-560m")
model = BloomForCausalLM.from_pretrained("bigscience/bloom-560m")

These lines load the model and tokenizer for the ‘Bloom-560m’ model.

Step 4: Generate Text

Now, let's generate text using the loaded model and tokenizer. We'll provide a text prompt and generate text based on that prompt. Execute the following code:

prompt = 'What does the future hold for my professional career as a Data Scientist?'
result_length = 150
inputs = tokenizer(prompt, return_tensors = 'pt')

bloom_560m = tokenizer.decode(model.generate(inputs["input_ids"],
                                             max_length = result_length,
                                             do_sample = True,
                                             top_k = 50,
                                             top_p = 0.9

In this code, we provide a prompt, specify the desired length of the generated text, and then generate the text. The generated text will be stored in the bloom_560m variable.

Step 5: Display the Generated Text

Lastly, let's display the generated text. We'll format it for readability by breaking it into lines. Execute the following code:

chars_per_line = 75
print('Q: ', prompt)

for i in range(0, len(bloom_560m), chars_per_line):

This code prints the prompt and the generated text in a readable format, breaking it into lines with a maximum of 75 characters per line.

That's it! You've now created a tutorial for generating text using the Hugging Face Transformers library with the ‘Bloom-560m’ model. You can experiment with different prompts and result lengths to generate text for various applications.

Tutorial 3: Fine-tuning Falcon-180B 

Welcome to this tutorial that demonstrates how to fine-tune the Falcon-180B language model, transforming it into a chatbot. This tutorial leverages the PEFT library from the Hugging Face ecosystem and QLoRA for memory-efficient fine-tuning. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a Falcon-180B-based chatbot ready for use.

Step 1: Set Up Your Environment

In your notebook, you can execute the following code to set up your environment and install the required libraries.

!pip install -q -U trl transformers accelerate git+
!pip install -q datasets bitsandbytes einops wandb

This code installs various libraries such as trl, transformers, accelerate, datasets, bitsandbytes, einops, and wandb, which are essential for the fine-tuning process.

Step 2: Load the Dataset

In this tutorial, we'll use the Guanaco dataset, a clean subset of the OpenAssistant dataset adapted to train general-purpose chatbots. You can load the dataset using the following code:

from datasets import load_dataset

dataset_name = "timdettmers/openassistant-guanaco"
dataset = load_dataset(dataset_name, split="train")

The dataset variable now contains the chatbot training data.

Then log-in to Hugging Face and access your dataset via Hugging Face access token.

(Link to Huggingface)

from huggingface_hub import   notebook_login

Step 3: Load the Falcon-180B Model

In this section, we'll load the Falcon-180B model, quantize it to 4 bits, and attach LoRA adapters to it. Execute the following code:

import torch
from transformers import FalconForCausalLM, AutoTokenizer, BitsAndBytesConfig, AutoTokenizer

model_name = "tiiuae/falcon-180B"

bnb_config = BitsAndBytesConfig(

model = FalconForCausalLM.from_pretrained(
model.config.use_cache = False

The model variable now holds the Falcon-180B model ready for fine-tuning.

Step 4: Load the Tokenizer

Load the tokenizer for the Falcon-180B model using the following code:

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name, trust_remote_code=True)
tokenizer.pad_token = tokenizer.eos_token

The tokenizer variable is now set up for tokenization.

Step 5: Configure LoRA and PEFT

To use LoRA and PEFT, we need to configure them. Use the following code to do so:

from peft import LoraConfig

lora_alpha = 16
lora_dropout = 0.1
lora_r = 64

peft_config = LoraConfig(

Now, the peft_config variable holds the PEFT and LoRA configuration.

Step 6: Configure the Trainer

In this step, we'll set up the trainer for fine-tuning. We use the SFTTrainer from the TRL library, which provides a wrapper around the Transformers Trainer. Execute the following code to configure the trainer:

from transformers import TrainingArguments

output_dir = "./results"
per_device_train_batch_size = 4
gradient_accumulation_steps = 4
optim = "paged_adamw_32bit"
save_steps = 10
logging_steps = 10
learning_rate = 2e-4
max_grad_norm = 0.3
max_steps = 500
warmup_ratio = 0.03
lr_scheduler_type = "constant"

training_arguments = TrainingArguments(

from trl import SFTTrainer

max_seq_length = 512

trainer = SFTTrainer(

The trainer variable now contains the configured fine-tuning trainer.

Step 7: Pre-Process the Model

Before training, we should pre-process the model by upcasting the layer norms to float32 for more stable training. Execute the following code:

for name, module in trainer.model.named_modules():
    if "norm" in name:
        module =

Step 8: Train the Model

Now, you're ready to train the model. Simply call trainer.train() to initiate the fine-tuning process:


During training, the model will converge, and you'll have a Falcon-180B-based chatbot model.

That's it! You've successfully fine-tuned the Falcon-180B model to create a chatbot. You can now use this chatbot for various conversational applications.


Efficiently training Huge Transformer LLMs has become essential to harness the power of these models for various NLP tasks. Techniques like distributed training, mixed precision, gradient accumulation, model parallelism, and data augmentation play a crucial role in making this possible.

As the field continues to evolve, we can expect even larger and more powerful LLMs to emerge, further pushing the boundaries of what is possible in natural language understanding and generation.

Image-based 3D Object Reconstruction State-of-the-Art and trends in the Deep Learning Era

3D reconstruction is one of the most complex issues of deep learning systems. There have been multiple types of research in this field, and almost everything has been tried on it — computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning, but to no avail. However, that has resulted in CNN or convolutional neural networks foraying into this field, which has yielded some success.

The Main Objective of the 3D Object Reconstruction

Developing this deep learning technology aims to infer the shape of 3D objects from 2D images. So, to conduct the experiment, you need the following:

  • Highly calibrated cameras that take a photograph of the image from various angles.
  • Large training datasets can predict the geometry of the object whose 3D image reconstruction needs to be done. These datasets can be collected from a database of images, or they can be collected and sampled from a video.

By using the apparatus and datasets, you will be able to proceed with the 3D reconstruction from 2D datasets.

State-of-the-art Technology Used by the Datasets for the Reconstruction of 3D Objects

The technology used for this purpose needs to stick to the following parameters:

  • Input

Training with the help of one or multiple RGB images, where the segmentation of the 3D ground truth needs to be done. It could be one image, multiple images or even a video stream.

The testing will also be done on the same parameters, which will also help to create a uniform, cluttered background, or both.

  • Output

The volumetric output will be done in both high and low resolution, and the surface output will be generated through parameterisation, template deformation and point cloud. Moreover, the direct and intermediate outputs will be calculated this way.

  • Network architecture used

The architecture used in training is 3D-VAE-GAN, which has an encoder and a decoder, with TL-Net and conditional GAN. At the same time, the testing architecture is 3D-VAE, which has an encoder and a decoder.

  • Training used

The degree of supervision used in 2D vs 3D supervision, weak supervision along with loss functions have to be included in this system. The training procedure is adversarial training with joint 2D and 3D embeddings. Also, the network architecture is extremely important for the speed and processing quality of the output images.

  • Practical applications and use cases

Volumetric representations and surface representations can do the reconstruction. Powerful computer systems need to be used for reconstruction.

Given below are some of the places where 3D Object Reconstruction Deep Learning Systems are used:

  • 3D reconstruction technology can be used in the Police Department for drawing the faces of criminals whose images have been procured from a crime site where their faces are not completely revealed.
  • It can be used for re-modelling ruins at ancient architectural sites. The rubble or the debris stubs of structures can be used to recreate the entire building structure and get an idea of how it looked in the past.
  • They can be used in plastic surgery where the organs, face, limbs or any other portion of the body has been damaged and needs to be rebuilt.
  • It can be used in airport security, where concealed shapes can be used for guessing whether a person is armed or is carrying explosives or not.
  • It can also help in completing DNA sequences.

So, if you are planning to implement this technology, then you can rent the required infrastructure from E2E Networks and avoid investing in it. And if you plan to learn more about such topics, then keep a tab on the blog section of the website

A Comprehensive Guide To Deep Q-Learning For Data Science Enthusiasts

For all data science enthusiasts who would love to dig deep, we have composed a write-up about Q-Learning specifically for you all. Deep Q-Learning and Reinforcement learning (RL) are extremely popular these days. These two data science methodologies use Python libraries like TensorFlow 2 and openAI’s Gym environment.

So, read on to know more.

What is Deep Q-Learning?

Deep Q-Learning utilizes the principles of Q-learning, but instead of using the Q-table, it uses the neural network. The algorithm of deep Q-Learning uses the states as input and the optimal Q-value of every action possible as the output. The agent gathers and stores all the previous experiences in the memory of the trained tuple in the following order:

State> Next state> Action> Reward

The neural network training stability increases using a random batch of previous data by using the experience replay. Experience replay also means the previous experiences stocking, and the target network uses it for training and calculation of the Q-network and the predicted Q-Value. This neural network uses openAI Gym, which is provided by taxi-v3 environments.

Now, any understanding of Deep Q-Learning   is incomplete without talking about Reinforcement Learning.

What is Reinforcement Learning?

Reinforcement is a subsection of ML. This part of ML is related to the action in which an environmental agent participates in a reward-based system and uses Reinforcement Learning to maximize the rewards. Reinforcement Learning is a different technique from unsupervised learning or supervised learning because it does not require a supervised input/output pair. The number of corrections is also less, so it is a highly efficient technique.

Now, the understanding of reinforcement learning is incomplete without knowing about Markov Decision Process (MDP). MDP is involved with each state that has been presented in the results of the environment, derived from the state previously there. The information which composes both states is gathered and transferred to the decision process. The task of the chosen agent is to maximize the awards. The MDP optimizes the actions and helps construct the optimal policy.

For developing the MDP, you need to follow the Q-Learning Algorithm, which is an extremely important part of data science and machine learning.

What is Q-Learning Algorithm?

The process of Q-Learning is important for understanding the data from scratch. It involves defining the parameters, choosing the actions from the current state and also choosing the actions from the previous state and then developing a Q-table for maximizing the results or output rewards.

The 4 steps that are involved in Q-Learning:

  1. Initializing parameters – The RL (reinforcement learning) model learns the set of actions that the agent requires in the state, environment and time.
  2. Identifying current state – The model stores the prior records for optimal action definition for maximizing the results. For acting in the present state, the state needs to be identified and perform an action combination for it.
  3. Choosing the optimal action set and gaining the relevant experience – A Q-table is generated from the data with a set of specific states and actions, and the weight of this data is calculated for updating the Q-Table to the following step.
  4. Updating Q-table rewards and next state determination – After the relevant experience is gained and agents start getting environmental records. The reward amplitude helps to present the subsequent step.  

In case the Q-table size is huge, then the generation of the model is a time-consuming process. This situation requires Deep Q-learning.

Hopefully, this write-up has provided an outline of Deep Q-Learning and its related concepts. If you wish to learn more about such topics, then keep a tab on the blog section of the E2E Networks website.

GAUDI: A Neural Architect for Immersive 3D Scene Generation

The evolution of artificial intelligence in the past decade has been staggering, and now the focus is shifting towards AI and ML systems to understand and generate 3D spaces. As a result, there has been extensive research on manipulating 3D generative models. In this regard, Apple’s AI and ML scientists have developed GAUDI, a method specifically for this job.

An introduction to GAUDI

The GAUDI 3D immersive technique founders named it after the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. This AI model takes the help of a camera pose decoder, which enables it to guess the possible camera angles of a scene. Hence, the decoder then makes it possible to predict the 3D canvas from almost every angle.

What does GAUDI do?

GAUDI can perform multiple functions –

  • The extensions of these generative models have a tremendous effect on ML and computer vision. Pragmatically, such models are highly useful. They are applied in model-based reinforcement learning and planning world models, SLAM is s, or 3D content creation.
  • Generative modelling for 3D objects has been used for generating scenes using graf, pigan, and gsn, which incorporate a GAN (Generative Adversarial Network). The generator codes radiance fields exclusively. Using the 3D space in the scene along with the camera pose generates the 3D image from that point. This point has a density scalar and RGB value for that specific point in 3D space. This can be done from a 2D camera view. It does this by imposing 3D datasets on those 2D shots. It isolates various objects and scenes and combines them to render a new scene altogether.
  • GAUDI also removes GANs pathologies like mode collapse and improved GAN.
  • GAUDI also uses this to train data on a canonical coordinate system. You can compare it by looking at the trajectory of the scenes.

How is GAUDI applied to the content?

The steps of application for GAUDI have been given below:

  • Each trajectory is created, which consists of a sequence of posed images (These images are from a 3D scene) encoded into a latent representation. This representation which has a radiance field or what we refer to as the 3D scene and the camera path is created in a disentangled way. The results are interpreted as free parameters. The problem is optimized by and formulation of a reconstruction objective.
  • This simple training process is then scaled to trajectories, thousands of them creating a large number of views. The model samples the radiance fields totally from the previous distribution that the model has learned.
  • The scenes are thus synthesized by interpolation within the hidden space.
  • The scaling of 3D scenes generates many scenes that contain thousands of images. During training, there is no issue related to canonical orientation or mode collapse.
  • A novel de-noising optimization technique is used to find hidden representations that collaborate in modelling the camera poses and the radiance field to create multiple datasets with state-of-the-art performance in generating 3D scenes by building a setup that uses images and text.

To conclude, GAUDI has more capabilities and can also be used for sampling various images and video datasets. Furthermore, this will make a foray into AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). With GAUDI in hand, the sky is only the limit in the field of media creation.
