Building datasets for language model training and fine-tuning can be very tedious. I learned this the hard way while trying to gather a conversational text dataset and a niche song lyrics dataset, both for training a single GPT-2 model. Only after several hours of semi-automated scraping and manual cleaning did…

Make sense of unstructured text data by applying machine learning principles.


I recently completed my first machine learning project at work and decided to apply the methods used in that project to a project of my own. The project I completed at work revolved around automatically classifying textual data using Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA).

LDA is an unsupervised machine learning model…
