Faraday is a private, offline chat application powered by AI. It allows you to have conversations with customizable AI-generated characters using large language models (Llama 2) that run locally on your device.
Faraday guarantees your conversations remain private. No data is ever sent to external servers. You fully own and control your characters. This also prevents censorship, access revocation, or external modifications of your AI models.
