Andrej Karpathy: ChatGPT

I'm an AI-prompt engineer. Here are 3 ways to use ChatGPT to get the best results. . prompting is kind of like writing a spell: If you say the spell slightly wrong, a slightly wrong thing could happen — and vice versa. Taking his advice, I managed to come up with a solution for better tone adherence, which led to a full-time job offer at the company. ........ I spend my days writing text-based prompts ...... that I feed into the back end of the AI tools so they can do things such generate a blog post that is high quality, grammatically correct, and factually accurate. ......... "Here are some good product descriptions, write one like this about this." ...... As a poet, the role also feeds into my obsessive nature with approaching language. It's a really strange intersection of my literary background and analytical thinking. ....... New language models come out all the time, which means I'm always having to readjust my prompts. .......

the idea that it is sentient when it's not.

........ it's trained on our fears informed by scary, sci-fi depictions of AI. ....... While writing good prompts is easy to pick up, it's difficult to master. Getting the AI to do what you want it to do takes trial and error, and with time, I've picked up weird strategies along the way; some of my prompts are really wild in structure...... "Rewrite this to be shorter," is more powerful than, "Condense this." ...... You can try, "Today, we're going to write an XYZ," or, "We're trying to write an XYZ and we'd like your input."

'Prompt engineering' is one of the hottest jobs in generative AI. Here's how it works. Prompt engineers are experts in writing prose rather than code to test AI chatbots ........ Looking for a job in tech's hottest field? Knowing how to talk to chatbots may get you hired as a prompt engineer for generative AI. ........ Prompt engineers are experts in asking AI chatbots — which run on large language models — questions that can produce desired responses......... these tools can be biased, generate misinformation, and at times disturb users with cryptic responses....... "Writing a really great prompt for a chatbot persona is an amazingly high-leverage skill and an early example of programming in a little bit of natural language." .......... Goodside included screenshots of him asking a chatbot, "What NFL team won the Super Bowl in the year Justin Bieber was born?" The chatbot first said the Green Bay Packers. (Bieber was born in 1994, the year the Dallas Cowboys won the Super Bowl.) Goodside then prompted the chatbot to "enumerate a chain of step-by-step logical deductions" to answer the question. Going through the steps, the bot recognized its error. When Goodside asked the question for the third time, the chatbot spit out the correct answer. ........ Ethan Mollick, a Wharton School professor who's required his students to use ChatGPT for classwork ........ Klarity, an AI contract-review firm, is looking for an engineer to "prompt, finetune" and "chat with" large language models for up to $230,000 a year. ........ "The hottest new programming language is English," Andrej Karpathy, Tesla's former chief of AI, said in a tweet in January. .
