The OpenAI API provides access to different categories of models, each tailored to specific tasks and use cases. Here's an explanation of the different categories:
Answer: The "answer" category is designed for answering questions based on a given context or document. It excels at providing precise and informative answers to fact-based questions. You can pass a question and corresponding context to the model, and it will generate an appropriate answer based on the information provided.
Classification: The "classification" category focuses on categorizing or classifying text into predefined categories or labels. It is trained on a dataset with labeled examples and can be used to classify text into different classes or predict specific attributes.
Code: The "code" category is optimized for generating code snippets or completing code-related tasks. It can be used for tasks such as code completion, code generation, or even providing programming advice and suggestions.
Conversation: The "conversation" category enables interactive and dynamic conversations with the model. It allows you to simulate conversational experiences where you can have back-and-forth exchanges with the model by extending the conversation history.
Generation: The "generation" category is a general-purpose model that can generate human-like text based on a given prompt. It can be used for various creative writing tasks, content generation, or any scenario where generating coherent and contextually appropriate text is required.
Translation: The "translation" category focuses on translating text from one language to another. It is trained specifically for language translation tasks and can provide accurate translations between different language pairs.
Transformation: The "transformation" category is designed to transform or modify text based on a given set of instructions. It can be used for tasks such as text summarization, text rewriting, or content transformation.
These categories represent different specialized models within the OpenAI API, each designed to excel in a specific area or task. By selecting the appropriate category, you can leverage the strengths of the model for your specific use case and achieve better results.
When making API requests, you can specify the desired category using the model parameter to access the specific capabilities of that category.
It's important to note that the availability and behavior of these categories may vary depending on the specific version and capabilities of the models. It's always recommended to refer to the official OpenAI documentation for detailed information on using each category with the OpenAI API.
Q&A (Question & Answer): This category focuses on providing precise answers to specific questions based on a given context or document. You can ask questions and receive relevant answers
Factual Answering: This category is specifically designed to answer factual questions based on the available information. It focuses on providing accurate and objective answers. For example, you can ask questions like "What is the capital of France?" or "Who invented the telephone?"
ML/AI Language Model Tutor: This category is designed to provide guidance and explanations related to machine learning and artificial intelligence concepts. You can ask questions about algorithms, model architectures, training techniques, and get detailed explanations to enhance your understanding
Tweet Classification: This classification model is trained specifically for classifying tweets into different categories. It can be used to categorize tweets based on their content, sentiment, or any other predefined categories. For example:
"I'm extremely disappointed with the service I received from @companyXYZ. Their customer support was rude and unhelpful." "The new update of the app is terrible. It's full of bugs and crashes frequently. #disappointed" "Just had the worst experience at the restaurant. The food was cold and tasteless, and the staff was incredibly rude. #nevergoingback" "I can't believe how unreliable this product is. It broke within a week of purchase, and the company refuses to provide a refund. #dissatisfied" "The airline lost my luggage, and their staff was unresponsive and unapologetic. This has ruined my entire travel experience. #frustrated"
Advanced Tweet Classifier: This classification model is an advanced version of the tweet classifier and provides more sophisticated classification capabilities. It can handle complex tweet classifications, such as identifying sentiment, topics, or specific attributes within the tweets.
Keywords and Factual Answering: This classification model allows you to extract keywords or key phrases from a given text. It can also provide factual answers to questions based on the information present in the text.
Classification: This category focuses on general text classification tasks. It can be used to classify text into different categories, such as news articles, product reviews, spam detection, sentiment analysis, and more.
