Getting the Most Out of ChatGPT: Effective Prompting Strategies
When ChatGPT was initially launched, it gained worldwide attention and made headlines because of its versatility and user-friendliness. But recently, the large language model–based chatbot is facing a decline in popularity. This decline can be attributed to the ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO)’ principle, which emphasizes that the quality of input affects the quality of output. In short, a chatbot’s performance depends on the quality of what people ask it.
Strategies for Prompting the Best Responses from Chatbots (ChatGPT)
SCAMPER is a creative thinking technique that can be used to prompt ChatGPT for generating innovative ideas, solutions, or variations on a given topic. SCAMPER stands for Substitute, Combine, Adapt, Modify, Put to Another Use, Eliminate and Reverse/Rearrange. By applying these seven actions, you can stimulate creativity and help ChatGPT provide ideas, solutions, or perspectives on a given subject or problem.
A decision matrix is a valuable tool for making informed choices when faced with multiple options or criteria. A matrix helps users evaluate and compare different choices systematically. Start by clearly defining the decision or choice you need to make, describing the options and criteria involved. Ask ChatGPT to create a decision matrix. If you have multiple rounds of decision-making or need to adjust criteria, you can iterate the process with ChatGPT.
