To get the most out of a chatbot, you need a strong foundation in 'prompting' skills. Anyone can pose questions to ChatGPT - but much of the power of AI chatbots lies in their ability to take direction. Adding well-chosen examples turns a 'zero-shot' question into a 'few-shot' prompt, improving the accuracy of the response, while decreasing the probability a chatbot 'hallucinates' its reply. Storytelling techniques - character, context and challenge - help a chatbot generate a richly detailed reply on almost any topic, in almost any tone, from almost any point of view. 'Chain-of-thought' prompts employ a step-by-step instruction process - familiar to all educators - 'teaching' a chatbot how to solve complex problems. But the use of AI chatbots comes with two new responsibilities: first, to protect data, privacy and security; and second, to learn how to discern the difference between 'truthiness' and truth chatbot responses.
