💻 Quickstart 📣 News 🛫 Examples 🖼️ Models 🚀 Roadmap

LocalAI is the free, Open Source OpenAI alternative. LocalAI act as a drop-in replacement REST API that’s compatible with OpenAI API specifications for local inferencing. It allows you to run LLMs, generate images, audio (and not only) locally or on-prem with consumer grade hardware, supporting multiple model families and architectures. Does not require GPU. It is maintained by mudler.

Start LocalAI

Start the image with Docker to have a functional clone of OpenAI! 🚀:

  docker run -p 8080:8080 --name local-ai -ti localai/localai:latest-aio-cpu
# Do you have a Nvidia GPUs? Use this instead
# CUDA 11
# docker run -p 8080:8080 --gpus all --name local-ai -ti localai/localai:latest-aio-gpu-nvidia-cuda-11
# CUDA 12
# docker run -p 8080:8080 --gpus all --name local-ai -ti localai/localai:latest-aio-gpu-nvidia-cuda-12

See the 💻 Quickstart for all the options and way you can run LocalAI!

What is LocalAI?

In a nutshell:

  • Local, OpenAI drop-in alternative REST API. You own your data.
  • NO GPU required. NO Internet access is required either
    • Optional, GPU Acceleration is available. See also the build section.
  • Supports multiple models
  • 🏃 Once loaded the first time, it keep models loaded in memory for faster inference
  • ⚡ Doesn’t shell-out, but uses bindings for a faster inference and better performance.

LocalAI is focused on making the AI accessible to anyone. Any contribution, feedback and PR is welcome!

Note that this started just as a fun weekend project by mudler in order to try to create the necessary pieces for a full AI assistant like ChatGPT: the community is growing fast and we are working hard to make it better and more stable.
