Brave Launches AI Assistant, Leo: What You Need to Know
Brave, a popular web browser developer, has recently introduced its own AI assistant, Leo, in conjunction with the release of desktop version 1.6. Leo is powered by Meta Llama 2, providing users with accurate AI interactions and a focus on user privacy.
Features of Leo
Leo is an extension of the Brave search AI Summarizer, directly accessible from the search bar. It does not collect conversations or track users, relying solely on web content for relevant information.
Leo Premium: Additional Features
Brave also offers Leo Premium, a paid service priced at $15 monthly. Leo Premium utilizes the Claude Instant model, developed by Anthropic, to enhance logical reasoning, code writing, and more structured responses.
Safety and Privacy
For both free and premium versions, Brave ensures user privacy with anonymous, private conversations, and the use of reverse proxy technology to prevent any correlation between user IP addresses and calls.
Brave plans to introduce additional models in the Premium version, improve network speed limits, conversation quality, and include exclusive features for subscribers. Leo and Leo Premium will soon be available on Android and iOS platforms.
The introduction of Leo marks a significant advancement in browser technology and AI integration, reaffirming Brave’s commitment to user-centric, privacy-focused innovation.
