ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE | Opera Browser integrates key AI models for local download and offline use – BitKE


Leading browser company Opera announces that it is adding experimental support for 150 local Large Language Model (LLM) variants from approximately 50 model families to its Opera One browser in the developer stream.

LLMs like the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) models developed by OpenAI are advanced artificial intelligence systems that are trained on large amounts of text data to understand and generate human-like text. They are used for various natural language processing tasks, including text generation, translation, and summarization.

According to Opera, this is the first time that local LLMs can be easily accessed and managed from a major browser via a built-in feature. The local AI models are a free addition to Opera's online AI service Aria. Supported local LLMs include:

  • Llama of Meta
  • Vicuna
  • Gemma from Google
  • Mixtral by Mistral AI

“Launching local LLMs in this way allows Opera to begin exploring opportunities to build experience and expertise in the fast-growing local AI space.” said Krystian Kolondra, EVP Browsers and Gaming at Opera.

Using local large language models means users' data is stored locally on their device, allowing them to use generative AI without having to send information to a server, Opera said.

Issues emerging in the artificial intelligence discourse include data protection, which has spawned three leading decentralized AI projects;, SingularityNET (SNET) and Ocean Protocol decide to join forces to create a decentralized AI ecosystem.

“Starting today, Opera One Developer users will have the ability to choose the model they want to use to process their input. To test the models, they must update to the latest version of Opera Developer and follow several steps to enable the new feature.” Opera said.

“If you opt for a local LLM, it will be downloaded on the computer. The local LLM, which typically requires 2-10GB of local storage per variant, is then used in place of Aria, Opera's native browser AI, until a user starts a new chat with the AI ​​or turns Aria back on.”
