Quanto vs TypeCasting

What’s the difference between using Quanto package and just type-casting the model??

We can type cast the model layers individually too. What exactly Quanto offers more than just type-casting??

Hi @Ashish_Singhal

Quanto does quantization beyond just a simple type-casting. It provides quantization-aware training, various quantization algorithms, and framework integration.

Type-casting converts model parameters to fixed-point representation, but Quanto considers the effects of quantization during training and applies a range of quantization algorithms, supporting dynamic adjustments during inference.

Hope this help!
