What is OpenAI API?

The OpenAI API provides a means to access OpenAI’s advanced artificial intelligence models.

The OpenAI API is not free to use. OpenAI charges on a per-request basis, with the cost depending on factors like the length of the text you’re asking the model to generate.

The OpenAI API uses API keys for authentication. These API keys are used in requests to verify the identity of the requesting user or application. To use the API, developers need to retrieve their API keys from the OpenAI API’s user interface.

The benefits of using OpenAI API are the following:

  1. Performance: calls executed via API are not throttled by OpenAI and they are not subject of user-level chatGPT limits
  2. Scalability: APIs, in general, offer scalability, and the OpenAI API is no exception. As your user base or data processing needs grow, APIs can handle the increased demand.
  3. Availability: The API system offers superior availability, ensuring optimal functionality and accessibility significantly more than the user-level constraints of ChatGPT
