Erik Voorhees, founder of Shapeshift, has announced the debut of Venice, an artificial intelligence (AI) application that promises enhanced privacy and unrestricted free speech. Unlike mainstream AI services, Venice is designed to operate without the “Orwellian” oversight typical of centralized platforms, offering a truly private and uncensored user experience.

New AI on the Block: Venice Aims to Redefine Privacy and Free Speech

Venice is attempting to position itself as a direct competitor to established AI models like Openai’s Chatgpt and Anthropic’s Claude, leveraging open-source technology to ensure user privacy and data security. According to Erik Voorhees and the announcement blog post hosted on his website moneyandstate.com, the AI model emphasizes end-to-end encrypted interactions where user data is neither stored nor monitored, ensuring a private digital environment.

Venice’s unique proposition compared to competitors lies in its commitment to uncensored and unbiased AI communication, making it stand out in a landscape where AI often comes with built-in content moderation. Voorhees explained on the social media platform X that the platform is not just about enhanced security; it also integrates multiple functionalities, including text chat, image generation, and code development.

This versatility is backed by a robust framework that supports user autonomy over AI interactions. “Uncensored,” Voorhees remarked. “Venice doesn’t censor the underlying open-source models that power it (though each model differs in its own training and boundaries). We treat you as an adult, capable of using information technology without paternalism. Free speech = human flourishing.”

The Shapeshift founder added:

For Pro Accounts, Venice lets you modify the parameters and boundaries of the conversations through direct access to the System Prompt, something that none of the centralized providers offer.

Voorhees and the announcement detail that Venice is more than just an AI service; it is a statement against the monopolistic tendencies of big tech companies. The launch reflects a growing movement that advocates for decentralized and permissionless digital services. Voorhees believes that such an approach not only preserves privacy and fosters free speech but also promotes broader civilizational advancement by minimizing corporate and governmental overreach.
