About this session

Remember the movie “Her”? It made us question the idea of falling in love with an AI, finding it simultaneously creepy, sad, and frightening. But such connections might already be happening with large language models like ChatGPT.

Let's conduct experiments and shape the personality of a chatbot using prompt engineering techniques.

There will be an increasing number of human-machine relationships, and that might not necessarily be a negative development. However, it is crucial to design these relationships carefully. Let’s have a discussion!

Key Take-Aways

  • Prototyping a chatbot app using ChatGPT is not rocketscience.
  • Prompt engineering techniques discussed can be useful for various other applications.
  • Human-machine relationships may become a common part of our daily lives, and their design is crucial.
