Mode 1: HyperChat
You can configure the HyperChat response creativity based on the temperature parameter (it’s simply a parameter to balance between accuracy and creativity).
For topics that you want to be accurate with less chance of hallucination, you should use a low temperature (factual). On the other hand, you can use higher temperature configuration for topics that require creativity like brainstorming ideas.
Configuring Bearly HyperChat
In addition to HyperChat mode, Bearly also offers Bearly ChatGPT (as a part of its Notebook mode) powered by ChatGPT but much faster with no rate limits.
