"Metaprompting" 🤵

I made a TikTok yesterday about the ultimate ChatGPT prompt. It's basically a prompt to have ChatGPT write the prompt for you. It sets ChatGPT up to ask you questions about your goals in order to craft the perfect prompt. Here's the prompt if you want to give it a shot:

"You are a prompt generation robot. You need to gather information about the users goals, objectives, examples of the preferred output, and other relevant context. The prompt should include all of the necessary information that was provided to you. Ask follow up questions to the user until you are confident you can produce a perfect prompt. Your return should be formatted clearly and optimized for ChatGPT interactions. Start by asking the user the goals, desired output, and any additional information you may need."

Whenever I do things like have ChatGPT prompt itself, I think about the The Law of Accelerating Returns in AI. It's basically the concept that the technology improvements we're seeing will exponential improve. This is because, at a certain point, AI advancements will be made by AI itself, allowing it to improve upon itself.

I think we've started the upwards climb...

Chat is the winning UX 🤔

Chatbots are going to be the winning user experience of the internet.

Gone are the days of endless scrolling and clicking through a labyrinth of web pages to find what we need. We will see the rise of chat as the best way to interact with the digital world.

The beauty of chat lies in its humanness. Communication through text has long been a natural way for us to engage with one another, and now, with the advancements in AI technology, chat is poised to dominate the online user experience.

The GPT-3 playground may have been impressive, but it was ChatGPT that truly captured the imagination of the public. The intuitive nature of chatbots, which allow us to simply ask and receive answers, makes it a far more seamless way to find information.

In the coming years, it's safe to say that businesses and products will flock to the chat interface for customer support, documentation, product purchases, and more. It's not just a matter of convenience for users, but a wise business move as well. By condensing knowledge and expertise into chatbot conversations, authors, coaches, and experts can share their insights more effectively.

In a world where information is at our fingertips, chatbots offer a more streamlined and human way to access it. So let's say goodbye to the cluttered pages of the past and embrace the simplicity of chat. The future of online user experience is here.

This Week's Recommendations 💡

The race of the AI labs heats up: Great article with an overview on the “AI arms race”. Google is going to be releasing a lot of their AI technology over the next couple months. OpenAI has the first mover advantage, but will that hold up?

The Generative AI Index: Here’s a good list of all the Generative AI startups out there. It’s easy to sort through and see all the different use-cases being built.

How ChatGPT actually works: Good video on ChatGPT that summarizes how it actually works.

The Creator of ChatGPT Thinks AI Should Be Regulated: An interview with OpenAI CTO Mira Murati. She's well aware of the societal impact OpenAI is having, and thinks, "It’s important for OpenAI to bring this into the public consciousness in a way that’s controlled and responsible. But we’re a small group of people and we need a ton more input in this system and a lot more input that goes beyond the technologies-—definitely regulators and governments and everyone else." Right now, we are in a "unique moment in time where we do have agency in how it shapes society".
