Input Token

LLM Knowledge Base

Input tokens refer to the individual units of information that are fed into an AI model as part of the prompt for processing. These tokens can be words, characters, or subwords, depending on the granularity of the model. They serve as the basis for the model to understand, analyze, and generate output. The number of input tokens often determines the computational requirements of the AI model, as more tokens typically require more processing power.

Input tokens are subject to the total (input + output) or specific (input only) token limit.
