Users scroll through a robust menu of recommended offline AI modules to embrace the power of their system. ABS AI Homebase will be updated and may offer programs like DigiKam and Upscayl.

  • ABS AI Helper: A local offline LLM-powered AI chatbot on ABS AI PCs, the personal AI assistant answers private prompts and receives file uploads. Users can challenge the chatbot for tasks like creating prose, coding, assisting with spreadsheets or answering trivia questions. ABS AI Helper is designed to fully utilize AI-ready hardware to offer a secure, efficient and productive GPT private assistant.

  • ABS AICanDraw: A local, AI-powered text-to-image generator transforms the user’s imagination into visuals. Prompts and generated images never leave the PC, ensuring the creative vision stays confidential. Also, reference photos can be uploaded to guide the AI or add elements from user prompts to those images.

In addition to the full suite of preinstalled advanced local AI software, systems are also fully functional for online AI applications like Copilot through Windows 11.
