What is OpenAI?

OpenAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) research organization. They conduct research and development in artificial general intelligence (AGI), a type of AI that can learn and perform any intellectual task a human can. Their mission is to ensure AGI is developed safely and ethically, prioritizing fairness, transparency, and positive societal impact. OpenAI accomplishes this through releasing tools and resources for the AI research community, while also developing their own AI technologies.

What is Astra DB?

The Astra DB vector database gives developers a familiar, intuitive Data API for vector and structured data types, and all the ecosystem integrations required to deliver production-ready generative AI applications on any infrastructure with unlimited scale.

How do OpenAI’s vector embedding models work?

OpenAI's embedding models take chunks of text and convert them into unique numerical codes. These codes capture the text's meaning and relationships between words, considering surrounding context. Imagine words as dots in a high-dimensional space, with similar meanings clustered together. By comparing these codes, OpenAI applications can find related text, recommend similar content, or even search code based on functionality.

When should I use Vectorize with OpenAI versus Azure OpenAI integration?

OpenAI is good for initial exploration and cost-conscious projects with less stringent security needs.

Azure OpenAI provides a more secure, user-friendly, and integrated experience for developers working within the Azure cloud.

Is it free to use the Vectorize with OpenAI integration?

There is no cost to use Vectorize at this time, but see the OpenAI website for more information regarding embedding provider pricing.

Do I need an OpenAI account to use this integration?

Yes, users need a paid OpenAI account to access OpenAI's embedding models and services within the Astra Vectorize environment. To use OpenAI embeddings with Vectorize, you will need to provide and API Key.
