  • Summary: OpenAI is an AI-based service that can be used to perform any task that involves understanding or generating natural language, code, or images. It provides a powerful API to interact with a wide variety of models. This detector aims at catching Project API keys for this service. This type of API Key is replacing legacy API keys since April 2024.
