Is ChatGPT free?
OpenAI provides a free version of ChatGPT through its OpenAI API, which allows developers to access the model and use it in their applications. However, the free version of the API has some limitations on the number of requests that can be made per month and the size of the models that can be used.
There is also the option to use the full version of the API, which provides access to larger models and higher request limits, but this version requires a paid subscription. The pricing of the paid version depends on the amount of usage, and it’s usually calculated on the number of requests made and the size of the models used.
Additionally, the OpenAI API is not the only way to access GPT-3 or similar models, you can also find other services and companies offering similar functionality, so you could check and compare the different options, pricing and functionality to choose the best one for your use case.
It’s also worth noting that OpenAI also provides GPT-3 model for download and use on a local machine, however this version will require you to handle the infrastructural and computational resources yourself.
