Why does the cost of using BrainSoup agents seem higher than directly using the underlying model?

The cost of using BrainSoup agents may seem higher due to the following factors:

  1. Data Anonymization Overhead: While we do not mark-up the cost of API calls, anonymizing these calls adds a minor overhead of 25%.
  2. Basic Agent Cost: A basic agent with all options disabled has the same cost as the underlying model, excluding the anonymization overhead.
  3. Optional Features Cost: Activating options like sense of time, self-awareness, memory of previous conversations, knowledge, contexts, etc., adds to the cost as more data needs to be processed. These features, while optional, enhance the capabilities and effectiveness of the BrainSoup agents.
