Our free, local install Artificial Intelligence server. Any platform, any language.

No off-device or out of network data transfer, no messing around with dependencies, use from any platform, any language.

Why are we creating CodeProject.AI?

AI programming is something every single developer needs to know

We wanted a fun project we could use to help teach developers and get them involved in AI. We'll be using CodeProject.AI as a focus for articles and exploration to make it fun and painless to learn AI programming

We want your contributions!

AI coding examples have too many moving parts

You need to install packages and languages and extensions to tools, and then updates and libraries (but version X, not version Y) and then you have to configure paths and...Oh, you want to run on Windows not Linux? In that case you need to... It's all too hard. There was much yelling at CodeProject.

CodeProject.AI Server includes everything you need in a single installer. CodeProject.AI Server also provides an installation script that will setup your dev environment and get you debugging within a couple of clicks.

AI solutions often require the use of cloud services

If you trust the cloud provider, and understand the billing structure, and can be assured you aren't sending sensitive data and won't go over the free tier this is fine. If you have a webcam inside your house, or can't work out how much AWS will charge, then a cloud service simply may not be an option. We need to ensure our data is safe.

CodeProject.AI can be installed locally. Your machine, your network, no data needs to leave your device.

What does it include?

CodeProject.AI includes

  • A HTTP REST API Server. The server listens for requests from other apps, passes them to the backend analysis services for processing, and then passes the results back to the caller. It runs as a simple self contained web service on your device.
  • Backend Analysis services. The brains of the operation is in the analysis services sitting behind the front end API. All processing of data is done on the current machine. No calls to the cloud and no data leaving the device.
  • MThe Source Code, naturally.

What can it do?

CodeProject.AI Server can currently

  • Detect objects in images
  • Detect faces in images
  • Detect the type of scene represented in an image
  • Recognise faces that have been registered with the service
  • Pull out the most important sentences in text to generate a text summary
  • Remove the background automatically from images
  • Blur the background of images to produce a portrait effect
  • Generate a sentiment score for text

We will be constantly expanding the feature list.

Our Goals

  • To promote AI development and inspire the AI developer community to dive in and have a go. Artificial Intelligence is a huge paradigm change in the industry and all developers owe it to themselves to experiment in and familiarize themselves with the technology. CodeProject.AI was built as a learning tool, a demonstration, and a library and service that can be used out of the box.

  • To make AI development easy. It's not that AI development is that hard. It's that there are so, so many options. Our architecture is designed to allow any AI implementation to find a home in our system, and for our service to be callable from any language.

  • To focus on core use-cases. We're deliberately not a solution for everyone. Instead we're a solution for common day-to-day needs. We will be adding dozens of modules and scores of AI capabilities to our system, but our goal is always clarity and simplicity over a 100% solution.

  • To tap the expertise of the Developer Community. We're not experts but we know a developer or two out there who are. The true power of CodeProject.AI Server comes from the contributions and improvements from our AI community.
