Generating customized responses using the Chat Completions endpoint

We previously explored the Chat Completions endpoint at the end of Chapter 1, but our request body was fairly simple and did not make use of the important parameters that we also discussed in the Running a completion request in the OpenAI Playground recipe. For example, we learned how the Chat Log could be used to fine-tune the responses that are generated. Additionally, the Chat Log feature can be used to deploy a chat bot inside your application.

In this recipe, we will cover how to generate responses using the Chat Completions endpoint while using the Chat Log parameters.
