TL;DR How can I calculate the cost, in tokens, of a specific request made to the OpenAI API?
Hi all. I’ve just used the OpenAI Playground (model:
gpt-3.5-turbo) to submit a user message and obtain an assistant message in reply. Is it possible to calculate the actual cost of this, in terms of tokens? If so, how can I do that? The user message, assistant message, and system message are below.
ChatGPT says the user message contains 2 tokens and the assistant message contains 3 tokens. I didn’t include the system message in my question–does it affect tokens used?
Motivation for my question: As a side project I want to build a web app using the OpenAI API. But before I do so, I’d like to estimate the costs I can expect to incur during the project.
Thanks in advance.
