A Guide to Learning to Use AI Prompts

By Jim Calloway

We still learn of new Artificial Intelligence developments almost weekly. Recently Apple boosted their share price with an announcement that the company had made a deal with OpenAI, parent of ChatGPT, to incorporate AI technology into Siri with Apple Intelligence.

One of the first things to learn about AI is developing good prompts, the questions or directions one submits to the AI tool. Learning to prompt will be like learning how to use search engines in the early days. So now is a good time to get started. The art of the prompt: How to get the best out of generative AI was recently posted on Microsoft’s website. It is a fine outline of prompting and it uses Bing Chat (now confusingly branded Copilot) for its examples, which all readers should have free access to use.

To learn more about Artificial Intelligence tools you can use and AI-generated problems you can avoid, consider registering for the OBA’s AI Conference, Artificial Intelligence: Shaping the Future of Law Practice, on July 12 at the Embassy Suites in Norman. It will cover many AI tools and AI cautions with several nationally known experts presenting. For more information and to register visit Annual Meeting – Oklahoma Bar Association (okbar.org).
