Reverse Engineering chatGPT to create prompts 🔜

(Work in progress, will be updating this on January 10, 2023. You’ll get an email when this is updated)


Preventing hallucination 🥹

Being a trained model many times gives false/untruthful answer.

According to TruthfulQA the best model was truthful on 58% of questions

So to prevent hallucinating effect add these to prompts:

  1. Write as truthfully as possible
  2. Answer the question as truthfully as possible using the provided text, and if the answer is not contained within the text below, say “I don’t know”
  3. don’t make up facts, use facts as it is.
  4. Rewrite by keeping the meaning facts & figure same


Tips for creating effective prompts 🪄

1️⃣Breakdown your final result into multiple steps

By breaking the result down into smaller, more manageable steps, you can give the AI a clear roadmap to follow when generating writing. This can help the AI understand your expectations and produce more targeted, relevant writing.

For example, rather than simply asking the AI to write a blog on a given topic, you could break the task down into several steps, such as:

  1. Generate Multiple Heading
  2. Generate outline or sub-headings
  3. Write an introduction that introduces the topic and sets the stage for the rest of the blog.
  4. Expand outline into paragraphs
  5. Write conclusion

Example 2: Creating copy for Landing page:

  1. Write a compelling headline for hero section
  2. Sub-heading for hero section
  3. CTA for hero section
  4. main benefits of the product or service being offered.
  5. elaborates on the main points and highlights the benefits of the product or service
  6. Add Testimonials
  7. Add a call to action that encourages visitors to take the desired action (e.g., “Sign up for a free trial,” “Buy now,” etc.)

2️⃣Be as detailed as possible in prompt

The more information you can provide the AI, the better it will be able to understand your expectations and produce effective writing. So be sure to provide as much detail as possible when giving prompts.

Feel free to use combinations of multiple modifiers.

At the same time don’t use opposite two opposite modifers like short & long in one prompt

3️⃣Play with prompts

Keep tweaking & improving your prompts until you get desire output.
