Craft Your Own Expert LLM - Using 100% Open-Source/Private/Free/Awesome Tools

Hey everyone! After seeing a lot of people's interest in crafting their own datasets and then training their own models, I took it upon myself to try and build a stack to help ease that process. I'm excited to share a major project I've been developing—the Vodalus Expert LLM Forge.

https://github.com/severian42/Vodalus-Expert-LLM-Forge

This is a 100% locally LLM-powered tool designed to facilitate high-quality dataset generation. It utilizes free open-source tools so you can keep everything private and within your control.

Why Open Source?

I decided to open source the Vodalus Expert LLM Forge to empower individuals and organizations everywhere to generate their own high-quality data. By making these tools freely available, I hope this community can start crafting their own models with little to no money and/or experience, helping to improve data quality and innovation across the board. While I'm releasing this tool for free, I've also completed an extensive tutorial/course with lots of videos and instructions that guide you through each step of maximizing the potential of this stack. This course is available for purchase at ko-fi.com/s/076479f834 and is designed to enhance your experience and results with the Vodalus Expert LLM Forge.

What’s included in the Vodalus Expert LLM Forge?

- Data Generation: Harness RAG (through AnythingLLM if you are set up properly) and Wikipedia to create datasets via local language models.

- Model Training & Fine-Tuning: Tutorials and Jupyter notebooks to customize models to your specific needs.

- Quantization: Optimize models for performance with our quantization guides.

If this project aids your work, please consider supporting it through a donation at my ko-fi.com/severian42. Your support helps sustain my further LLM developments and experiments, always with a focus on using those efforts to give back to the LLM community.
