If you are looking for a project to keep you busy this weekend you might be interested to know that it is possible to run artificial intelligence in the form of large language models (LLM) on small single board computers (SBC) such as the Raspberry Pi and others. With the launch of the new Raspberry Pi 5 this month its now possible to carry out more power intensive tasks to its increased performance.
Although before you start it’s worth remembering that running AI models, particularly large language models (LLMs), on a Raspberry Pi or other SBCs presents an interesting blend of challenges and opportunities. While you trade off computational power and convenience, you gain in terms of cost-effectiveness, privacy, and hands-on learning. It’s a field ripe for exploration, and for those willing to navigate its limitations, the potential for innovation is significant.
