SOLUTIONS

Supervised Fine Tuning Solutions

Our dedicated Gen AI team will help you fine tune an existing LLM based on your unique objectives.

Domain Specificity

Fine-tuning an LLM for a specific domain, such as technical, medical, etc., requires a targeted approach. We help curate a high-quality dataset tailored to your domain, encompassing various aspects like tone, format and justifications. Our team can also evaluate and rewrite model responses for context and domain specificity to fine tune your model to its environment.

Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG)

Our team will help drive the enhancement of RAG by fine-tuning question-answer pairs, incorporating retrieved passages from your knowledge base with proprietary documentation to inform answer generation and more. We’ll also evaluate models' outputs and rewrite any incorrect responses to create additional training data to better fine-tune your model.

Task Optimization

We can help fine-tune models for specific tasks such as summarization or sentiment analysis. Our team starts by crafting clear and concise prompts along with corresponding answers. We’ll also evaluate and rewrite model responses based on your goals to help fine-tune an existing LLM to your exact needs.

Writing Styles

Our team of LLM specialists can help fine-tune models to different writing styles such as creative, technical, formal, persuasive and more. We’ll review and rewrite prompts and corresponding responses based on the style of writing needed. For example, informative prompts that focus on conveying factual information will result in a more objective and neutral style while prompts that involve storytelling or imaginative elements will likely result in a more creative style.

APPROACH

Our Proprietary Approach to Supervised Fine Tuning

Sama’s supervised fine-tuning projects start with tailored consultations to understand requirements for model behavior. This collaborative effort involves identifying key characteristics like tone, terminology, writing styles, relevant factual knowledge and more. We’ll align on how you want your model to behave and set targets across a variety of dimensions.

Our AI specialists leverage their expertise to write high quality prompts along with corresponding answers across varying formats and dimensions. We’ll curate a highly specialized set of data to help streamline the LLM development process.

After an initial set of data has been created we’ll work with your team to review the prompts and responses created to ensure the data aligns with the intended purpose of the generative model or LLM. If needed, our teams will collaborate closely to recalibrate.

As errors in model outputs are identified, our team will begin creating an additional training data set that can be used to fine-tune model performance based on your objective: domain specificity, task optimization, etc. This new data consists of rewritten prompts and corresponding responses that address the specific mistakes made by the model.

When the project is complete, we follow a structured delivery process to ensure smooth integration with your LLM training pipeline. We offer flexible and customizable delivery formats, APIs, and the option for custom API integrations to support rapid development of models.

OTHER SOLUTIONS

Generative AI and LLM Solutions

With over 15 years of industry experience, Sama’s data annotation and validation solutions help you build more accurate GenAI models and LLMs—faster.

Model Evaluation

Our human-in-the-loop approach drives data-rich model improvements & RAG embedding enhancements through a variety of validation solutions. Our team provides iterative human feedback loops that score and rank prompts along with evaluating outputs. We also provide multi-modal captioning and sentiment analysis solutions to help models develop a nuanced understanding of user emotion and feedback.

Training Data

We’ll help create new data sets that can be used to train or fine tune models to augment performance. If your model struggles with areas such as open Q&A, summarization or knowledge research, our team will help create unique, logical examples that can be used to train your model. We can also validate and reannotate poor model responses to create additional datasets for training.
