Windows AI brings GPT search power to PCs


Want to know what you said to your partner last week via email but can’t be bothered to trawl through your personal files? Just ask Chat with RTX, a new form of AI that connects to a Windows PC and will conduct instant searches for you.

NVIDIA appears to be stepping up its rivalry with Sam Altman’s iconic company, OpenAI. On February 13th, it introduced its PC-friendly large-language model, which aims to combine ChatGPT-style AI with the ordinary personal computer.

“Rather than searching through notes or saved content, users can simply type queries,” the AI company explained. “For example, one could ask, ‘What was the restaurant my partner recommended while in Las Vegas?’ and Chat with RTX will scan local files the user points it to and provide the answer with context.”

RTX is a digital platform used by NVIDIA to support its AI features, as well as games and other graphics-related applications.

Free to download, the tool supports file formats .txt, .pdf, .doc/.docx, and .xml, making it handy for research purposes.

“Point the application at the folder containing these files, and the tool will load them into its library in just seconds,” said NVIDIA.

Described by the company as a “tech demo,” Chat with RTX can be used by any Windows machine that has 8GB or more of random access memory (RAM).

“Users can also include information from YouTube videos and playlists,” added NVIDIA. “Adding a video URL to Chat with RTX allows users to integrate this knowledge into their chatbot for contextual queries.”

This allows a user to ask for, say, travel recommendations based on content from a favorite influencer’s videos or access quick tutorials taken from reputable educational resources, the company claims in a promotional blog.

“Once Chat with RTX runs locally on Windows RTX PCs and workstations, the provided results are fast – and the user’s data stays on the device,” it added. “Rather than relying on cloud-based LLM services, Chat with RTX lets users process sensitive data on a local PC without the need to share it with a third party or have an internet connection.”

Looks like the AI ball is firmly back in your court, Mr. Altman…
