Pre-trained neural networks give smaller teams a leg up

  • A neural network is first trained on a large general-purpose dataset using significant amounts of computational resources, and then fine-tuned for the task at hand using a much smaller amount of data and compute resources.
  • The use of pre-trained networks has exploded in recent years ...

  • One of the risks associated with foundation models is their ever-increasing scale.
  • Pre-training on a large general-purpose dataset is no guarantee that the network will be able to perform a new task on proprietary data.
  • Dataset alignment and recency of training data can matte...

Cloud APIs are easier, but outsourcing isn't free

  • The cost of API calls, data storage, and cloud instances will scale along with usage.
  • Many companies that have used cloud APIs for machine learning today may eventually attempt to transition to self-hosted or self-trained models to gain more control over their machine learning pipeli...
