Prompt Engineering

Prompt engineering is the process of designing and optimizing input prompts to elicit desired responses or behaviors from AI models, particularly in language models.

How Prompt Engineering Works

Effective prompt engineering involves understanding the capabilities and limitations of the model and crafting prompts that guide it towards producing accurate, relevant, and coherent outputs. This skill is especially crucial for large language models like GPT-3 and later, where the output is highly dependent on the nature and structure of the input prompt.
