If you have been using ChatGPT, the new Bing, Poe or any other chatbot powered by a generative artificial intelligence for a long time, it is possible that on some occasion you have found yourself in front of the screen, with the cursor blinking waiting for the next prompt, but not sure what to writeeither due to lack of inspiration, or perhaps because you do know what you want to consult, but you are not quite clear on how to approach it.
During the last few months, people have begun to talk about the prompt engineering, and although elevating it to the category of engineering seems a bit pretentious to me, it is true that the ability to generate requests to artificial intelligences could become, soon, a demanded aptitude for many professional profiles. Obviously, and in the shadow of these prospects, some offers related to training in this regard have already emerged.
Are we experiencing the beginning of a revolution, the first steps of a bubble, or perhaps, more likely, something somewhere in between? It will take us a while to find out, but from today’s perspective, it seems that services like ChatGPT and the like are here to stay, either in their current format or in an evolution that most of us still can’t imagine but in which we surely already have. there are people working.
Be that as it may, the present is of the generative AIs, and having some aids for its use can make an important difference. It is true that they use natural language, so it is not necessary to learn a specific language to use them, but even so, it is important to be especially precise to obtain what we want. If you remember, for example, the tutorial in which we told you how to create glossaries with GPT-3 and Google Sheets, you will remember that we talked about precision in the prompt to generate the descriptions.
In this type of case, we find an excellent way of learning to be able to analyze the prompts of other users and the response given to them by the AI in which they have been used. And in this sense, web pages that collect queries and results have also begun to proliferate. Of course, we can take the prompts and modify them, if we wish, to obtain the result we want, but simply reading them can also be of great help to later create our own.
The first sites of this type to appear were focused on image-generative AIs, as they were the first to start to catch on, during the second half of last year. However, with the advent of ChatGPT, some of these sites have also opened up to chatbotsand at the same time also others have appeared dedicated exclusively to text-generative AIs.
Of the first of both types, and although its section dedicated to ChatGPT is still not very extensive, I recommend PromtpHero. There you will find prompts for the main image AIs, but in its top menu you will also find the new section dedicated to the OpenAI chatbot.
Regarding sites dedicated specifically to ChatGPT, but with prompts that, for the most part, can also be used in other chatbots, I found Ordinary People Prompts especially interesting. In it, as you can see, the prompts and the answers provided by the AI are shown.
