What is Local AI ?

Local AI is a desktop app for local, private, secured AI experimentation. Included out-of-the box are:

  • A known-good model API and a model downloader, with descriptions such as recommended hardware specs, model license, blake3/sha256 hashes etc…

  • A simple note-taking app, with inference config PER note. The note and its config are output into plain text .mdx format

  • A model inference streaming server (/completion endpoint, similar to OpenAI)

It’s made to be used alongside https://github.com/alexanderatallah/window.ai/ as a simple way to have a local inference server up and running in no time. window.ai + local.ai enable every web app to utilize AI without incurring any cost from either the developer or the user!

Right now, local.ai uses the https://github.com/rustformers/llm rust crate at its core. Check them out, they are super cool!
