Grabbing the Image

Private AI is distributed via a single container image. No further downloads are required, as everything is packaged into the image, including the ML models. Updates are released on a monthly cadence via new container images.

Image Types

There are 4 different flavours of the Private AI container:

  • cpu , which contains all features except for GPU support.
  • cpu-text , a cut down CPU image that contains only text functionality.
  • gpu , which contains all features except for synthetic entity functionality.
  • gpu-text , a GPU-accelerated version of cpu-text .

The supported feature matrix is below:

cpu cpu-text gpu gpu-text
Multilingual Support
Synthetic Entity Support
Embedding Support
File Support
GPU Support
Standard ASR Support
Premium ASR Support


  • Audio file processing needs a container with the ASR support.
  • Premium ASR support needs an additional container image. Contact us for more details.

Versioning Scheme

Images are tagged with the release version followed by the image type. For example, the 3.0.0 release features the following images: 3.0.0-cpu, 3.0.0-cpu-text, 3.0.0-gpu, 3.0.0-gpu-text. The container repository also contains cpu, cpu-text, gpu and gpu-text tags which point to the latest release version.
