Everything you need to know to get started

In the digital age we live in, the ability to communicate with Artificial Intelligence (AI) becomes fundamental. How do you talk to AI? Through prompts, this is why one of the most popular professions now is prompt engineering.

1. What is a prompt?

To be safe, let's start with the basics. A prompt it is essentially an instruction or input given to the Artificial Intelligence to produce a specific response. Like when you tell your virtual assistant to play a song; your command is the “prompt,” and the song is the response.

2. Who is the prompt engineer and why is he essential?

Everyone talks about it, few know what it consists of. The prompt engineer is the one who takes care of creating and optimizing prompts to obtain the best possible results from the AI. Think of him as a chef who knows exactly what ingredient to add to make the dish perfect. Without prompt engineering, you may have inaccurate or irrelevant answers. Simply put, the prompt engineering create the perfect formula for your AI.

3. How do you create a prompt?

An effective prompt has:

  • Clarity: You need to clearly tell the AI what you want.
  • Precision: The more precise you are, the more precise the answers you will get.
  • Context: Provide relevant background or information to guide the response.

Essentially, a basic prompt consists of:

So, if our aim is to write an email we should first give the role to the AI (act like a copywriter, like a marketer or whatever we need) and then make our request being as detailed as possible.

Already with this basic prompt we obtained a satisfactory answer

Our response would have been even more precise if we had included a description of who is organizing the webinar, why and the services they offer. (Spoiler, the organizers are us at “The Arrogant T-Rex”)

4. Why should you learn how to create prompts?

Artificial Intelligence can transform the way an entrepreneur does his job. When you integrate AI into your business, prompts become your language for communicating with it, and you can streamline many work processes.

Let's talk about:

  • Automation: You can create prompts to automate repetitive tasks like ordering supplies, managing inventory, or analyzing customer feedback.
  • Data analysis: Through well-worded prompts, you can ask AI to look at massive data sets and provide you with insights, such as sales trends or customer preferences, in seconds.
  • Customer interaction: An AI-powered chatbot system can use prompts to answer customer questions in real time, providing a seamless and personalized user experience.

And these are just some of the advantages you can get.

As you've seen, creating a prompt is simple once you understand the mechanism behind it. Precisely for this reason, participating in training courses on the creation of prompts and the operation of AI tools can make the difference for your company.
