LoRA (Low-Rank Adaptation) is a novel approach to fine-tuning large language models. It leverages low-rank approximation techniques to make the adaptation process more efficient and cost-effective. By decomposing the pre-trained model, adapting the low-rank representation, and reconstructing the full model, LoRA reduces computational resources, enables faster adaptation, lowers energy consumption, and enhances accessibility.
💡 Use cases
