Efficient Prompting for Generative AI Tools

Efficient Prompting for Generative AI Tools


In Person

With the recent advancements in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP), Generative AI (Gen-AI) tools are rapidly evolving and have already become powerful tools for various sectors. Including the widely known tool ChatGPT, there are various competitors in the market with recently proposed open-source alternatives. Regarding the method under the hood and the data set they are trained on, different tools have certain capabilities and limitations. To have a better conservation with these Gen-AI tools and fully harness their potential, it is crucial to be aware of the concept of prompt engineering and power. This training workshop aims to introduce the main strategies of prompt engineering including tips and certain practices to achieve optimal outputs with Gen-AI tools. After providing a hands-on overview of prompt engineering, certain features of ChatGPT will be discussed for fostering the research practices. The target audience for this workshop is mainly researchers and practitioners working in different fields who are interested in using the Gen-AI tools more efficiently and responsibly in their daily work. 

This is a beginner-level workshop. No previous knowledge on the topic is required/expected and the trainer will cover the basics of the method. If you want to explore the topic before the workshop you can have a look at this Prompt Engineering Guide.


This workshop will be taught by Ozan Evkaya.
