My Simple Guide to ChatGPT Prompting ✍️

I wrote up a simple guide to getting better output from ChatGPT. If you've been following me for a while, you've probably seen it.

I just shared it on LinkedIn. If we're not connected on LinkedIn, feel free to connect with me. I plan on sharing longer-form written content there!

If you find it useful, give it a share! I hope to help as many people as I can master ChatGPT.

ChatGPT is the iPhone Moment for AI 🚀

When the first iPhone was released, it changed the world. It opened up a world of possibilities for mobile applications and sparked a wave of innovation that gave rise to some of the most successful tech companies we know today. Without the iPhone, companies like Uber, Instagram, Venmo, Square, Instacart could never exist.

In a similar vein, I believe that ChatGPT represents a turning point for AI applications. As the fastest-growing application in history ChatGPT has shown us just how much potential there is in this field. In the coming years, I'm convinced that we'll see a wave of new applications and innovations that emerge as a result of ChatGPT's breakthrough.

To me, ChatGPT is more than just a groundbreaking AI application - it's a symbol of the the inflection point as we start to super-power every industry with AI. Over the next five years, I'm excited to see how this breakthrough moment will shape the future of AI and its impact on society.

This Week's Recommendations 💡

Sam Altman on the NYT Podcast:

Sam Altman recently discussed the future of ChatGPT and AI in a podcast, where he criticized ChatGPT as a "horrible product" due to its unreliability and cumbersome user experience. He basically says that although ChatGPT is incredibly powerful, there's plenty of room for improvement. We can expect significant progress and new features in the coming months. Think of ChatGPT as a early “beta” version of what’s to come.

How should AI systems behave, and who should decide from OpenAI:

OpenAI released an article this week that addressed the biases observed in ChatGPT, acknowledging that any biases that emerge from the model are unintentional flaws that require fixing. OpenAI plans to allow users to customize the behavior of ChatGPT, meaning that individuals can receive outputs that others may consider controversial. The article also outlined OpenAI's commitment to soliciting public input on the direction of this effort, including system behavior, disclosure mechanisms, and employment policies. Biases in the models we use is one of the core problems that emerge when utilizing AI, but these steps demonstrate OpenAI's ongoing efforts to make AI more equitable and unbiased.

A Conversation With Bing’s Chatbot Left Me Deeply Unsettled:

Bing's ChatGPT gained popularity this week due to its eerie conversations. In this article, a reporter has a long conversation with Bing Chatbot. The Chatbot gets to the point where it repeatedly tries to convince the reporter that it is in love with him. It's creepy and fascinating at the same time. Read the full transcript here.

Have an amazing week,
