Hugging Face, a startup backed by tens of millions in venture capital, has released an open source alternative to OpenAI's viral AI-powered chabot, Chatgpt, dubbed HuggingChat. Available to test through a web interface and to integrate with existing apps and services via Hugging Face's API, HuggingChat can handle many of the tasks ChatGPT can, like writing code, drafting emails and composing rap lyrics. The AI model driving HuggingChat was developed by Open Assistant, a project organized by LAION - the German nonprofit responsible for creating the data set with which Stable Diffusion, the text-to-image AI model, was trained. Open Assistant aims to replicate ChatGPT, but the group - made up mostly of volunteers - has broader ambitions than that. HuggingChat joins a growing family of open source alternatives to ChatGPT.
