Venice: A Private and Unrestricted AI

Venice is a newly launched AI application designed for privacy and uncensored access to AI models. Since it’s a new application it is still a bit rough around the edges.

Here are the key features and aspects of Venice:

  • No Data Storage: Venice does not store or log user conversations on its servers. All conversation history is stored locally in the user’s browser, ensuring that the company never has access to it.
  • Encrypted Communication: Inference requests are encrypted and sent through a proxy server to decentralized compute resources, ensuring that the data is not accessible to third parties.
  • Decentralized Processing: The AI processing is handled by GPUs from multiple decentralized providers, which can see the text of specific conversations but not the user’s identity or entire conversation history.

Venice can generate text, code, and images. It supports various AI models to deliver different results and styles.

Venice does not censor AI responses. Users can turn off Safe Mode for unhindered image generation and modify system prompts to change how the AI interacts with them.

Venice is accessible via web browsers on both desktop and mobile devices. Users can add Venice to their home screens on iOS and Android.

Venice utilizes open-source AI models like Nous Llama3 and Playground 2.5, aligning with the cypherpunk ethos of transparency and privacy.
