DuckDuckGo has expanded the AI models available in their AI Chat beta, adding two powerful new options - Llama 3 70B and Mixtral 8x7B.

This is great news for users of the DuckDuckGo AI Chat, which provides an anonymous and privacy-focused way to interact with large language models. The addition of these new models gives users more choice and flexibility in the type of AI assistance they can access.

Llama 3 70B is a large language model developed by Anthropic, with 70 billion parameters. Mixtral 8x7B is an 8-bit quantized model with 7 billion parameters, also from Anthropic. Both models offer impressive capabilities in areas like natural language processing, question answering, and text generation.

The DuckDuckGo implementation of these models maintains the service’s strong privacy protections. All user conversations are completely anonymous, with no user data or metadata being stored or shared with the model providers. This ensures users can interact freely without compromising their privacy.

One area users have requested improvement is the current 8,000 character limit on conversations. Many users find this limit restrictive, especially when trying to generate longer-form content like article summaries. Hopefully DuckDuckGo will consider increasing this limit in a future update to provide an even more robust AI chat experience.

Overall, the addition of Llama 3 70B and Mixtral 8x7B is a welcome enhancement to the DuckDuckGo AI Chat beta. Users now have more powerful AI models to choose from, all while maintaining DuckDuckGo’s strong commitment to privacy and anonymity. It’s an exciting development for anyone looking to access advanced language AI in a secure and private way.
