About this course

The OpenAI Playground is a dynamic and user-friendly platform that allows individuals to engage with OpenAI's cutting-edge language models, such as GPT-3.5 and GPT-4. The Playground enables users to experiment with natural language processing (NLP) capabilities and parameters to tweak the responses of models. You will start this course by exploring the fundamentals of OpenAI models. Next, you will log into the OpenAI Playground and input basic prompts, observing the responses. You will work with multiple application programming interfaces (APIs), including the recommended chat completions API and the legacy completions API, all of which are accessible via the playground. Finally, you will work with the Assistants API which has access to tools for data retrieval, code interpretation, and function calling and can leverage these to respond to user queries. You will utilize the code interpreter to read and visualize CSV data, generating Python code for charts using libraries like Matplotlib and Seaborn.
