What is prompt engineering?

Prompt engineering is the process of designing and refining prompts to improve the performance of large language models (LLMs). LLMs are a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that can generate text, translate languages, and answer questions in a comprehensive and informative way. However, LLMs are only as good as the prompts they are given.

Prompt engineering can be used to improve the performance of LLMs in a number of ways, including:

  • Making prompts more specific and informative.   
  • Providing the LLM with additional context.
  • Using techniques such as priming and fine-tuning.

Making prompts more specific and informative.

The more specific and informative a prompt is, the better the LLM will be able to understand and respond to it. For example, instead of prompting the LLM to "write a poem," you could prompt it to "write a poem about a cat who is lost in a big city."

Providing the LLM with additional context.

The more context the LLM has, the better it will be able to understand and respond to the prompt. For example, if you are prompting the LLM to answer a question, you could provide it with the text of the question as well as the relevant background information.

Using techniques such as priming and fine-tuning.

Priming is the process of feeding the LLM a set of examples before the prompt. This can help the LLM to understand the desired output. Fine-tuning is the process of training the LLM on a specific dataset. This can help the LLM to improve its performance on a specific task.

To write a good prompt, we need to consider the following factors:

1. What is the desired output? What do we want the LLM to generate?

2. What information does the LLM need to generate the desired output? What kind of context   or background information does the LLM need to know?

3. How can we format the prompt in a way that is clear and concise? We want to make sure    that the LLM understands what we are asking it to do.

Here are some examples of good prompts:

  • Write a poem about a cat who is lost in a big city
  • Write a summary of the article "The Future of Artificial Intelligence."
  • Write a code snippet to calculate the factorial of a number.
  • Write a script for a short film about two friends who go on a road trip.

Here are some examples of bad prompts:

  • Write something creative.
  • Answer my question.
  • Tell me a story.
  • Generate some text.

Here are some tips for prompt engineering:

  • Be specific and clear in your prompt. Tell the LLM exactly what you want it to generate.
  • Provide the LLM with the necessary context and background information.
  • Use examples to illustrate what you are looking for. This can help the LLM to generate the desired output.
  • Break down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable tasks. This will make it easier for the LLM to generate the desired output.
  • Use feedback to refine your prompts. If the LLM does not generate the desired output, try to identify the reason why and refine your prompt accordingly.

Here are some of the challenges in prompt engineering:

  1. LLMs are complex and opaque. It is difficult to understand exactly how LLMs work and how they process prompts
  2. LMs can be biased. LLMs are trained on massive datasets of text and code. This data can reflect the biases of the people who created it. As a result, LLMs can generate biased or inaccurate text. It is important to be aware of these biases and to take steps to mitigate them.
  3. Prompt engineering can be time-consuming and computationally expensive
  4. Prompt engineering is a challenging task because it requires a deep understanding of both the task at hand and the capabilities of the LLM.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
