What exactly does "probability" mean in this sentence?

In this example we give the API examples of questions and answers it knows and then examples of things it wouldn't know and provide question marks. We also set the **probability** to zero so the API is more likely to respond with a "?" if there is any doubt.

What exactly does “probability” mean in this sentence?
Is it related to temperature or Top P?

Welcome to the forum.

From the context of the sentence, I believe they’re talking about setting temperature to zero. While similar, temperature and top p are a bit different. OpenAI usually recommends using one or the other except for edge cases.

Probability, in this OpenAI documentation, is actually the set of two settings, when both are available, that work together: Top_P and/or Temperature.

There is a good thread about it by @ruv:
