OpenAI has introduced the option of fine-tuning for GPT-3.5 Turbo, enabling artificial intelligence (AI) developers to enhance performance on specific tasks using dedicated data. However, developers have expressed criticism as well as excitement for the development.

OpenAI clarified that through the process of fine-tuning, developers can customize the capabilities of GPT-3.5 Turbo according to their requirements. For example, a developer could fine-tune GPT-3.5 Turbo to create customized code or proficiently summarize legal documents in German, using a data set sourced from the client’s business operations.
