Can I transfer current fine tuned LLM Learning to another LLM later?

I have fine tuned FLAN-T5 with custom data and suppose now some updated version of this series shows up. Is there anyway I can transfer my current learnings to this new model or do I have to re train it?

Hi @saadrasheeddev

Welcome to the community.

Sure! You can use Transfer Learning to apply your FLAN-T5 model’s learnings to the new version.

Load the new model, apply the old model’s weights to common layers, optionally freeze some layers, and continue training on your data.

Don´t forget to adjust these steps as needed for your use case.

I hope this hep

Best regards

yes you can do it
