How it works


A taxonomy of skills and knowledge helps to identify gaps in desired capabilities, and then generate enough diversity in synthetic data to tune base models efficiently.


Join the community

To get started, download the ilab command line interface and a quantized version of the latest model from the community GitHub.

You can experiment locally until your model is producing the desired outputs, and then contribute your skills recipes and knowledge sources back to the community.
