AI in the Browser and on the Edge

In this talk we'll take a look at the awesome open source library Transformers.js which allows us to run pretrained models right in the browser with no need for servers! Additionally we'll explore how we've brought AI inference and LLMs into Supabase Edge Functions, allowing you to run certain AI workloads faster and more cost-efficiently on the Edge!
