What would be the appropriate community to ask questions in relation to engineering/ designing/ writing a prompt for deep learning models, such as DALL-E, GPT-3 or Stable Diffusion?

These prompts, especially when automated with APIs and accessed from programming languages, can often become quasi-programming in themselves; for instance, the prompt may include JSON, and the output may include actual parsable code, etc. At other times, these prompts are just natural language, with no trace of programming.

    I don't think there's one site for any possible question. If it is programming then Stack Overflow, if not then maybe cross-validated or ai depending on what exactly the question is. If you have a specific question you want to ask we could likely help a bit more. Commented Oct 22, 2022 at 9:48
  • AI is a great suggestion, thanks. As far as questions go, here are two examples: 1, 2. Commented Oct 22, 2022 at 10:00
  • "prompt engineering" - "... is a concept in artificial intelligence, particularly natural language processing (NLP) ... description of the task is embedded in the input, e.g., as a question instead of it being implicitly given." Commented Oct 22, 2022 at 12:35
  • "Prompt-based learning is a strategy that machine learning engineers can use to train large language models (LLMs) so the same model can be used for different tasks without re-training." Commented Oct 22, 2022 at 12:47
  • @This_is_NOT_a_forum Wow. That Wikipedia article still says "implicitly" instead of "explicitly".

There are 3 SE sites on AI:

one on NLP: https://linguistics.stackexchange.com/

and Stack Overflow if purely about coding.

We really need Build and strengthen the Stack Exchange community with "crossover questions" between sites.

  • Note though that questions which are about programming without statistical content tend to get closed on the stats site.

Some questions about prompt engineering might be asked on GenAI Stack Exchange. This site was launched in July 2023. As of August 13, 2023, the site name and scope are still being discussed in their respective child meta.
