AI Models

What’s exciting?

PrivateGPT is powered by LangChain, LlamaCpp, Chroma, SentenceTransformers, and GPT4All itself. Use the power of AI to upgrade the document interaction experience today!

Run the Model Offline

You can enjoy the freedom of running the entire pipeline locally, without any reliance on an internet connection. Well, no need to worry about data leaving your environment.

Ask questions to your docs locally

Utilizing LangChain tools and HuggingFaceEmbeddings (SentenceTransformers), you can generate embeddings and store them in a local vector database using the Chroma vector store. All the information you need is at your fingertips.

100% privacy and safety

Your privacy matters. PrivateGPT and GPT4All allow your data to stay completely secure and private. Feel confident knowing that your documents and questions remain in the utmost safety!

PrivateGPT Model

PrivateGPT supports a wide range of file types including CSV, docx, HTML, md,PDF, pptx, and txt and more. Ingest your files into the source_documents directory and enjoy seamless document interaction without an internet connection!

Tech for good > Lack of information about moments that could suddenly start a war, rebellion, natural disaster, or even a new pandemic. Geo-political tensions are creating hostile and dangerous places to stay; the ambition of pharmaceutic industry could generate another pandemic "man-made"; channels of safe news are necessary that promote more hope than fear. Create a trend system identification that forecast where and when will happen rebellions, a pandemic, natural catastrophe, or war, combining different subjects like geo-political, environmental, and social development - collecting and crossing data like emotional factors, laws creation, government satisfaction, local and international news, and many others. The main point is to move the population before happening disasters or offer proper informational tools to decide where/when go out!
