    Title:  Building Updatable Language Model Systems in the Wild
     
    Abstract: Building updatable language model systems has become a crucial challenge  alongside the progress of large language models. In this thesis proposal, I will present my efforts on creating resources, developing efficient methods, and analyzing learning dynamics in updating language models. I will introduce two of my past works, focused on lifelong pretraining of language models and fusing knowledge of multiple models by merging their weights. I will then introduce my on-going study of analyzing and forecasting examples that will be forgotten by model updates to reduce forgetting that happens during the process of model updates.
