- OpenAI chatbot, ChatGPT has grown its use in the recent weeks and many people continue to use it on a daily basis
- With millions of people using the chatbot, you need your prompts unique and impressive
- Here are five tips you can use to get next level prompts from your ChatGPT
ChatGPT and other tools like it have made AI accessible to the general public. We can now receive responses on almost any subject imaginable. These bots can generate sonnets, code, theory, and other things.
While you can simply type anything into ChatGPT and it will understand you, there are methods to get more interesting and useful results from the bot. This “rapid engineering” is evolving into its own specialized talent.
It only takes a few more words or an extra line of instruction to get ChatGPT answers that are a level above what everyone else is seeing—we’ve included several examples below.
ChatGPT can give your answers in tabular form
If you inquire, ChatGPT can provide you with responses in the form of a table. This is especially useful for gathering information or coming up with creative concepts. For example, you could keep track of meal plans and ingredients, game ideas and equipment, or the days of the week and how they’re pronounced in various languages.
You can have ChatGPT make changes to the tables it draws and even create them in a standard format. This is so that another program (such as Microsoft Excel) can understand by using follow-up prompts and natural language.
Setting limit on your answers
ChatGPT can really shine when given constraints to work within, so don’t be shy about asking the bot to limit its responses to a certain number of words or paragraphs.
It could be anything from condensing information from four paragraphs into one to asking for responses in seven characters or fewer. (just to keep it simple). If ChatGPT does not correctly follow your responses, you can correct it and it will try again.
Keeping in mind your target audience
Another way to change how ChatGPT reacts to you is to tell it who its target audience is. You may have seen videos in which complicated topics are explained to people with varying levels of comprehension, and this works in a similar manner.
You can, for example, inform ChatGPT that you are speaking to a group of 10-year-olds or a group of business entrepreneurs, and it will respond accordingly. It is useful for producing numerous outputs based on the same theme.
ChatGPT can produce prompts for other AI engines
ChatGPT is a very competent prompt engineer in its own right. When you ask it to generate innovative and effective inputs for artificial intelligence engines like Dall-E and Midjourney, you’ll get text that you can then enter into other AI tools you’re experimenting with. You can even inquire for tips using ChatGPT’s own prompts.
When it comes to creating prompts, the more precise and detailed you are about what you want, the better: You can instruct the chatbot to expand and detail your sentences, to act as a prompt generator for a specific AI tool, and to refine its responses as you add more and more information.
You can provide examples to work with
Giving ChatGPT some data to work with before you ask your question is another method to improve the responses you get. You could, for example, give it a list of book summaries along with their genre, and then ask it to apply the proper genre label to a new summary. Another option is to inform ChatGPT about your favorite activities and then receive a new suggestion.
There is no special phrase combination that you must use here. Simply use natural language as usual, and ChatGPT will comprehend what you’re saying. At the start of your prompt, specify that you’re providing examples, and then inform the bot that you want a response with those examples in mind.
