How do I access the API?

With a free account you will have access to our test API. This allows you to make mock API calls using the same endpoints as the production API, but they won't actually return real data or allow you to solve. This will allow you to integrate with the API and test that things are working without needing to upgrade your account. When you are ready to switch over to full use of the API (uploading/downloading data, running models, etc.) you will need to upgrade to a paid account.
