Data-Centric FinGPT: Open-source for Open Finance.

Let us DO NOT expect Wall Street to open-source LLMs nor open APIs, due to FinTech institutes' internal regulations and policies.

We democratize Internet-scale data for financial large language models (FinLLMs) at FinNLP and FinNLP Website

Why FinGPT?

1). Finance is highly dynamic. BloombergGPT retrains an LLM using a mixed dataset of finance and general data sources, which is too expensive (1.3M GPU hours, a cost of around $5M). It is costly to retrain an LLM model every month or every week, so lightweight adaptation is highly favorable in finance. Instead of undertaking a costly and time-consuming process of retraining a model from scratch with every significant change in the financial landscape, FinGPT can be fine-tuned swiftly to align with new data (the cost of adaptation falls significantly, estimated at less than $416 per training).

2). Democratizing Internet-scale financial data is critical, which should allow timely updates (monthly or weekly updates) using an automatic data curation pipeline. But, BloombergGPT has privileged data access and APIs. FinGPT presents a more accessible alternative. It prioritizes lightweight adaptation, leveraging the strengths of some of the best available open-source LLMs, which are then fed with financial data and fine-tuned for financial language modeling.

3). The key technology is "RLHF (Reinforcement learning from human feedback)", which is missing in BloombergGPT. RLHF enables an LLM model to learn individual preferences (risk-aversion level, investing habits, personalized robo-advisor, etc.), which is the "secret" ingredient of ChatGPT and GPT4.

What is FinGPT and FinNLP?

The Goals of FinGPT

  1. Real-time data curation pipeline to democratize data for FinGPT
  2. Lightweight adaptation to democratize the FinGPT model for both individuals and institutes (frequent updates)
  3. Support various financial applications
  • FinNLP provides a playground for all people interested in LLMs and NLP in Finance. Here we provide full pipelines for LLM training and finetuning in the field of finance. The full architecture is shown in the following picture. Detail codes and introductions can be found here. Or you may refer to the wiki

End-to-end framework: FinGPT embraces a full-stack framework for FinLLMs with four layers:

  • Data source layer: This layer assures comprehensive market coverage, addressing the temporal sensitivity of financial data through real-time information capture.
  • Data engineering layer: Primed for real-time NLP data processing, this layer tackles the inherent challenges of high temporal sensitivity and low signal-to-noise ratio in financial data.
  • LLMs layer: Focusing on a range of fine-tuning methodologies such as LoRA, this layer mitigates the highly dynamic nature of financial data, ensuring the model’s relevance and accuracy.
  • Application layer: Showcasing practical applications and demos, this layer highlights the potential capability of FinGPT in the financial sector.
