Ensemble methods have been successfully used to leverage diversity from different models, improving performance, at the cost of inference time. In the situation where the compounding models are neural networks that share the same architecture, merging methods have appeared as an alternative to ensembles, without the drawback of increasing inference time. This research project aims to study these techniques in the context of Large Language Models (LLMs), on Natural Language Processing tasks.
