ChatGPT-3.5 Prompt Writing Introduction


What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an AI that generates text based on text input.

ChatGPT was developed by OpenAI and released as a beta in November 2022.

ChatGPT grew from 0 to 1 000 000 users in just 5 days and has continued to grow.

ChatGPT can be used to:

  • Understand Text
  • Create content
  • Debug code
  • Education
  • Research
  • Translation
  • Virtual Assistant
  • And much, much more!

The process of giving ChatGPT input is known as Prompt Writing, or Prompt Engineering.


General Rules for Prompt Writing

The first prompt provides a starting point or direction for ChatGPT. The response follows the same tone, context, and style as the prompt.

Here are some general rules for writing prompts for ChatGPT-3.5:

  • Start simple - start with a simple prompt and build on it
  • Call to Action - start the prompt with an action word like "Write", "Create", or "Summarize" instead of "Can you"
  • Add Context - add specific and relevant context to the task you want to perform
  • Add Expectations - add clear and direct expectations for the content, like how long it should be and what to include

Example

With the following prompt:

- It should be useful
- It should be silly
- It should spark creativity

A response from a Generative AI (in this case, ChatGPT) could be:
