Why you should learn to write prompts instead of using Jasper

Jasper is an interface that uses GPT-3. It recently raised $125M at a $1.5B valuation. Jasper’s per-word cost is 100X more than using GPT-3 through OpenAI, but the real cost is opportunity cost since Jasper prevents learning to write your prompts. Prompt writing is how you interact with GPT-3 directly. Learning prompt writing is important …

Zero-shot Prompt Writing for Large Language Models Like GPT-3

A large language model (LLM) is a computer program that takes in text and outputs predictions (completions) about the next word in the text. For example, if you give the language model the text “The quick brown fox”, it might output the prediction “jumped”. What is zero-shot prompt engineering? Zero-shot prompt engineering is the process …
