Invoke AI originated as a project built by the community, and that vision carries forward today as we aim to build the best pro-grade tools available. We work together to incorporate the latest in AI/ML research, making these tools available in over 20 languages to artists and creatives around the world as part of our fully permissive OSS project designed for individual users to self-host and use.
