Fine-tuning is the process of taking a pre-trained model and training it further on a smaller, domain-specific dataset. This additional training helps the model adapt to the nuances and requirements of the specific task or domain.
Fine-tuning helps transferring the general knowledge learned from the foundational training on to specific tasks or domains, to enhance the model's performance on those tasks.
Embedding a foundational model means integrating or incorporating the pre-trained model into another system or application, but without significantly altering its learned parameters. This means using the model's capabilities as they are.
For example, the model could be used for generating text, answering questions, or any other task it was originally trained for.
