All Day DevOps - Securing Data with Local AI Model Execution


In our digital world, keeping our data safe is a big concern. As we use more and more AI tools, we need to make sure our sensitive information stays private. This talk will focus on how we can use something called “local AI model execution” to help keep our data safe. We’ll focus on using pre-compiled models from Hugging Face, which makes this process easier. We’ll start by talking about why data security is so important when we’re using AI tools. Then, we’ll show you how to use Hugging Face to run AI models on your own computer, which can help keep your data more secure. But it’s not just about security. We’ll also show you some of the cool things you can do with Hugging Face, like creating pictures from text descriptions or even writing code! In the end, we’ll talk about how using local AI can help us get the benefits of AI while keeping our data safe. We’ll show you that with the right tools, anyone can start experimenting with AI in a safe and secure way. Related topics we’ll cover: - Why data security is important when using AI. - How to use Hugging Face to run AI models on your own computer. - Cool things you can do with Hugging Face, like creating pictures and writing code. - The future of safe and secure AI use
