Number of Generations

When you call the Generate endpoint, you have the option to generate multiple generations in a single call. This is done by setting the num_generations parameter.

Generating multiple outputs in a single API call.

Generating multiple outputs in a single API call.

The model’s outputs will vary depending on the generation settings you have specified, such as temperature, top-k, and top-p.

Each generation comes with its set of likelihood values, which consists of:

  • The likelihood of each generated token.
  • The average likelihood of all generated tokens.


This example uses the input: “This curved gaming monitor delivers ...

The output generated with a maximum token set of 4 and sorted by average token likelihood are:

-0.96a truly immersive experience
-1.11a virtually seamless view
-1.70the ultimate viewing experience
-2.15a 144Hz rapid
-2.44a comfortable and stylish

You can use these outputs in a number of ways, by selecting the one with the highest likelihood as the final output, for example, or by presenting them as options in your application.
