Overview of this book

As artificial intelligence continues to reshape industries with OpenAI at the forefront of AI research, knowing how to create innovative applications such as chatbots, virtual assistants, content generators, and productivity enhancers is a game-changer. This book takes a practical, recipe-based approach to unlocking the power of OpenAI API to build high-performance intelligent applications in diverse industries and seamlessly integrate ChatGPT in your workflows to increase productivity. You’ll begin with the OpenAI API fundamentals, covering setup, authentication, and key parameters, and quickly progress to the different elements of the OpenAI API. Once you’ve learned how to use it effectively and tweak parameters for better results, you’ll follow advanced recipes for enhancing user experience and refining outputs. The book guides your transition from development to live application deployment, setting up the API for public use and application backend. Further, you’ll discover step-by-step recipes for building knowledge-based assistants and multi-model applications tailored to your specific needs. By the end of this book, you’ll have worked through recipes involving various OpenAI API endpoints and built a variety of intelligent applications, ready to apply this experience to building AI-powered solutions of your own.

Creating a public endpoint server that calls the OpenAI API

As discussed previously, there are many important benefits of creating your own public endpoint server that calls the OpenAI API, instead of connecting to the OpenAI API directly – the biggest being control and customization, which we will explore in this recipe and the next recipe.

In this recipe, we will use GCP to host our public endpoint. When this endpoint is called, it will make a request to OpenAI for a slogan for an ice cream company and then will return the answer to the user. This sounds simple and almost unnecessary to make a public endpoint, but it is the final step we need to build a truly intelligent application that leverages OpenAI.

To do this, we will create a GCP resource called Cloud Functions, which we will explore later in the How it works… section of the recipe.
