NPS Guidance on Generative AI

Nps interim guiding principles for use of generative artificial intelligence (ai) tools, nps academic honor code, prompt engineering.

Interactions between users and generative AI tools--whether it be in the form of questions, sentences, data, etc.--are known as prompts . Prompts require human intuition and creativity in order to formulate the right query and combination of elements needed to activate an AI tool's prompt logic.

Prompts are explicit instructions that enable an AI tool to produce the desired output. Additionally, Role Prompting assigns AI a role to act as a certain person (i.e. "You are my teacher", "You are a food critic", "You are a brilliant physicist who can solve any problem in the world", etc), which can improve accuracy and typically modifies how the AI tool will generate output.

Below are things to keep in mind when writing AI Prompts.

CLEAR Framework

C oncise, l ogical, e xplicit, a daptive, and r eflective.

So you've made your initial prompts, what's next? Keep going!

Prompt Engineering Examples

Source: Google Developers--Maching Learning Glossary: Generative AI

Prompts are any text entered as input to a large language model to condition the model to behave in a certain way. Prompts can be as short as a phrase or arbitrarily long (for example, the entire text of a novel). Prompts fall into multiple categories, including those shown in the following table:

A generative AI model can respond to a prompt with text, code, images, embeddings, videos…almost anything.

Types of Prompts

Source: Google Developers: Prompt Engineering for Generative AI

  • Direct prompting (Zero-shot):  Direct prompting (also known as Zero-shot) is the simplest type of prompt. It provides no examples to the model, just the instruction.
  • Prompting with examples (One-, few-, and multi-shot): One-shot prompting shows the model one clear, descriptive example of what you'd like it to imitate. 
  • Chain-of-thought prompting:  Chain of Thought (CoT) prompting encourages the LLM to explain its reasoning. Combine it with few-shot prompting to get better results on more complex tasks that require reasoning before a response.
  • Zero-shot CoT:  Recalling the zero-shot prompting from earlier, this approach takes a zero-shot prompt and adds an instruction: "Let's think step by step." The LLM is able to generate a chain of thought from this instruction, and usually a more accurate answer as well. This is a great approach to getting LLMs to generate correct answers for things like word problems.

Prompt iteration strategies Learn to love the reality of rewriting prompts several (possibly dozens) of times. Here are a few ideas for refining prompts if you get stuck:

Note: These strategies may become less useful or necessary over time as models improve.

  • Repeat key words, phrases, or ideas
  • Specify your desired output format (CSV, JSON, etc.)
  • Use all caps to stress important points or instructions. You can also try exaggerations or hyperbolic language; for example: "Your explanation should be absolutely impossible to misinterpret. Every single word must ooze clarity!"
  • Use synonyms or alternate phrasing (e.g., instead of "Summarize," try appending "tldr" to some input text). Swap in different words or phrases and document which ones work better and which are worse.
  • Try the sandwich technique with long prompts: Add the same statement in different places.
  • Use a prompt library for inspiration. Prompt Hero and this prompt gallery are two good places to start.
