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. Oct 22 at 9:48
  • AI is a great suggestion, thanks. As far as questions go, here are two examples: 1, 2. Oct 22 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." Oct 22 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." Oct 22 at 12:47

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.
