Training a Generative Model

Training a generation model consists of a few simple steps. Let’s go through the steps for training a generation model.

On the Cohere dashboard, go to the models page and click on "Create a custom model".

Choose the Generate Option

Click on the tile that says "Generate".

Upload Your Data

Upload your data by clicking on ‘Choose a .txt file’. Your data should be in TXT format.
If your data contains separators to distinguish between training examples, add the separator string in the ‘Data separator’ field (for example: --SEPARATOR--). If your data doesn’t contain separators, leave the field blank.

Once done, click on ‘Review data’.

Review Data

The next window will show you a few samples of your data that has been split. If you included data separators, the data will be split according to the separator. If you didn’t, the split will be done automatically.

If you are happy with how the samples look, click on ‘Continue’ at the bottom of the page.
