Byte FAQ


In this byte-sized course we’ll dive into all the ways to use the OpenAI API for AI application development, including:

  • Making Chat Completions API calls using OpenAI’s GPT models
  • Deeply understanding the Chat Completions parameters such as temperature, seed, top_p, max_tokens, frequency penalty, and more
  • Making text-to-image API calls to DALL-E to generate original images
  • OpenAI's recommended Prompt Engineering principles for working with GPT models
  • Integrating the text-to-speech (TTS) and speech-to-text (Whisper) into your applications
  • Incorporating AI into your classic apps

You’ll also develop a real-world project using the OpenAI API and Python: a healthy daily meal plan! You'll use the Chat Completions API to provide you with original recipes, in the style of a talented chef, for the entire day, based on a list of ingredients and with a maximum daily intake of calories. You'll then use the image generation endpoint to generate original and visually appealing images for each meal. And finally you'll use the text-to-speech API to narrate the recipes for you while you cook...voila, you've developed your first AI application!


This Byte will take about 3.5 hours to complete.

Whether you're a seasoned developer or a curious beginner, diving into the OpenAI API can open doors to the world of AI application development.

Plus learning about these AI tools is fun! It provides you with the skills to create endless practical applications. It's a bit like learning a new language, but instead of words you're learning how to communicate with AI to bring your wildest ideas to life. Plus, it's a skill that's becoming increasingly valuable in almost every industry, so it's a great way to future-proof your career.
