A new open source project called llama2-webui makes it possible for anyone to run advanced AI chatbots like ChatGPT on their own computers. The project lets you launch a web interface to chat with top AI models like Meta’s Llama 2 and Anthropic’s Claude, no coding required.

What is llama2-webui?

Llama2-webui is a tool that makes it easy to run ChatGPT-style AI chatbots locally on your own PC or laptop. It works by providing a web interface powered by the open source machine learning framework Gradio.

So instead of needing to know how to code in Python or use git repositories, you can simply download the tool, configure it, and access the AI chatbot through a webpage on your computer.

Why run AI locally?

There are a few key reasons you may want to run an AI assistant locally:

How does it work?

Llama2-webui is built using the Python deep learning library Hugging Face Transformers. It interfaces with advanced transformer-based language models like ChatGPT to understand text queries and generate human-like responses.

Specifically, it can run models from Meta’s Llama 2 project or Anthropic’s Claude, which are some of the most powerful AI chatbots available right now.

First, you’ll need a PC with at least 6GB of RAM and preferably an Nvidia GPU. GPUs can accelerate the AI computations, but a powerful CPU will also work.

Install the requirements with Python pip:

pip install -r requirements.txt

2. Download a Language Model

Next, you’ll need to acquire one of the AI chatbot models compatible with llama2-webui such as Llama 2.

Some options:

Save the downloaded model in a folder on your computer.

3. Configure the .env File

Edit the .env file included in llama2-webui to point to your downloaded model. The .env sets up the environment variables used by the tool.

It should look something like:

# Other settings like batch size

See the examples for other configurations.

4. Launch the Web UI

You’re ready to launch the web interface and chat!



This will print a URL you can open in your browser to access the AI chatbot.

Start asking it questions and it will generate human-like responses using the Llama 2 or Claude model you configured.
