The Art of AI Prompt Engineering Half-Day Course

Dive into the world of Prompt Engineering with this interactive half-day course, ideal for those relatively familiar with Large Language Models like ChatGPT, Gemini (formerly known as Bard), and Co-Pilot. This course emphasises exploring the nuances of crafting effective prompts, discussing OpenAI's guidelines, and discovering how prompts yield varied results across different AI models.

Participants will engage in group discussions and share experiences to enrich understanding. Together, you'll uncover the dynamics of simple versus complex prompts, recognise common errors generated by AI due to prompting, and delve into the concept of meta-prompting.

This course is a collaborative journey into the realm of AI, fostering a community of learners who share insights and learn from each other's experiences. If you do not feel confident using Large Language Models or AI and are looking for an introductory course, take a look at our Introduction to AI for Absolute Beginners course.
