Ways to use ChatGPT for best results

March 30, 2023

ChatGPT, hosted more than 100 million users in the first two months of its launch and now hosts 13 million users every day. But most people have yet to explore the chatbot's potential, partly because of the way they interact with it, and also because the language-processing AI, which uses the GPT-3.5 LLM (large language model), currently has limited knowledge of world events after 2021. In this article we will show you how to get the best results with ChatGPT.

After successfully setting up an account with OpenAi and getting the basic rules about ChatGPT, you are in already, and all you need to do is to type in your text and get the information you seek. But there are some basic principles to look into to get the right answers in a comprehensible form. While trying to give the chatbot an assignment that can be concisely presented in words, consider:

1.paraphrasing questions in forms that the chatbot will understand, especially when it's giving you wrong answers or refusing to provide one
2.describing the preferred complexity of the response you seek. For example, you can instruct the chatbot to explain a concept to a five-year-old or instruct it to add references and examples to the answers it provides
3.adding the industry niche response you want to avoid getting a generalised word response that may lack the specific terminologies you seek. For example, you can instruct the chatbot to give you replies like a medical doctor or a football analyst
4.instructing the chatbot to respond in a style or form for better results. For instance, you can instruct it to write a historical romance story or a contemporary romance story. It all depends on how creative you are.

If you write them down, be aware that ChatGPT will give you answers based on the information available in its system, and may give you incorrect information if it is missing. OpenAi warns against this and assures that it rarely happens.

The fun part is that you can spice up the chatbot to respond like a human with emotions. Although the chatbot doesn't have emotions, it's very good at using emoticons. You can easily tell it to use emoticons in its reply and, more importantly, if the chatbot stops processing a query halfway through, perhaps because of the volume of the reply or a network problem, you can tell it to start again by clicking 'Continue' for normal text or 'Continue code' for a broken code block.
