Technical requirements

All the recipes in this chapter require you to have access to the OpenAI API (via a generated API key) and have an API client installed. You can refer to the Chapter 1 recipe Making OpenAI API requests with Postman for more information on how to obtain your API key. This will also require knowledge of Python and the Python OpenAI library, which we covered in the first recipe within Chapter 4.

We will also use the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to host our public endpoint. GCP is a suite of cloud computing services offered by Google. It provides a range of hosting and computing services for databases, data storage, data analytics, machine learning, and more, all hosted on Google’s infrastructure.

In order to do this, you need to create a Google Cloud account, which you can do here: https://cloud.google.com/.
