Generative AI chatbots are computer models (or programs) that can create new things for you, they can even talk to you.
They learn from an immense amount of data, like books, articles or pictures and use that date to make new things that are similar to, but not identical to the original data.
That can be a report based on the articles it has read before. Or it can draw a picture (as shown above) based on images and styles of artwork it has seen before.
Prompting is the method of telling a generative Artificial Intelligence model how to create new things, like content, art images, music and audio tracks, or whatever you want it to do from the data it has learned from.
Role prompting lets you guide the AI platforms in more detail, so they produce helpful results you want and need as well as how you want it made.
You can use role prompting to specify the style, tone, topic or format of the content you want a chatbot to create for you.
Here is a sample of Role Prompting: “You are a romantic. Write a haiku about autumn as a glorious time of year.”
The chatbot first explained about a haiku – A haiku is a type of poem that has three lines, with five, seven, and five syllables each. Here is my attempt:
Autumn leaves falling
Colors of fire and gold
A feast for the eyes
Then I shifted gears and prompted as follows: Write a two-stanza verse on the same subject in the style of Thoreau.
The chatbot replied: “Thoreau was a poet and philosopher who wrote about nature and life. He used metaphors, symbolism, and detailed descriptions in his poems. Here is my attempt:”
Autumn is the time
When nature shows its beauty
And prepares to die
The trees are ablaze
With colors of the sunset
A farewell to earth
Enjoy all the wonders that generative Artificial Intelligence can bring. (Note: AI helped me create and structure this article based on my role prompting.)
