DeepSeek is a free and open-source collection of large language models which offer two main models – DeepSeek Chat and DeepSeek Coder. These models can either be accessed on the official DeepSeek website or run locally with the model checkpoint files (you can find these on Hugging Face). The website offers an easy way to interact and chat to the AI, similar to other chatbots such as ChatGPT and Bard. For questions relating to coding, DeepSeek Coder will be able to provide much better responses than the standard chat.
