How Answer with AI works. When a user enters a query, Brave is using large language models (LLMs), primarily Mixtral 8x7B and Mistral 7B, data from its search results and RAG (retrieval augmented generation) to generate answers nearly instantly. When will users see Answer with AI. For informational, question-like queries, Answer with AI will be the default experience.
