The Power of Scale for Parameter-Efficient Prompt Tuning

8 code implementations EMNLP 2021 Brian Lester, Rami Al-Rfou, Noah Constant

More remarkably, through ablations on model size using T5, we show that prompt tuning becomes more competitive with scale: as models exceed billions of parameters, our method "closes the gap" and matches the strong performance of model tuning (where all model weights are tuned).
