Language models

Base models

Multiple models, each with different capabilities and price points. Ada is the fastest model, while Davinci is the most powerful. Prices are per 1,000 tokens. You can think of tokens as pieces of words, where 1,000 tokens is about 750 words. This paragraph is 35 tokens.
  • Ada

    $0.0004 / 1K tokens
  • Babbage

    $0.005 / 1K tokens
  • Curie

    $0.0020 / 1K tokens
  • Davinci

    Most powerful
    $0.0200 / 1K tokens

Fine-tuned models

Create your own custom models by fine-tuning our base models with your training data. Once you fine-tune a model, you’ll be billed only for the tokens you use in requests to that model.

Usage quotas

When you sign up, you’ll be granted an initial spend limit, or quota, and we’ll increase that limit over time as you build a track record with your application. If you need more tokens, you can always request a quota increase.
