Free Webinar

Unlocking the full potential of language models and generative AI often feels like navigating a whimsical yet confounding Wonderland. This session infuses design thinking into AI prompt crafting. Attendees will explore how the framework guides them to:
  • Assess AI strengths and user needs to identify optimal interaction points
  • Transform vague requests into well-defined problem statements
  • Embrace playful ideation techniques to generate nuanced prompts
  • Leverage iterative feedback loops between user and AI to achieve collaborative creativity
This session embraces a hands-on approach with elements inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Ideal for AI enthusiasts and those unfamiliar with AI, this presentation balances the technical aspects of prompt writing with an emphasis on igniting creativity.
After this session, the learner will be able to:
  • Empathize with the end user and the AI tool by analyzing their needs, strengths, and limitations.
  • Define a clear problem statement focused on achieving specific, measurable outcomes from the AI interaction.
  • Ideate a range of creative prompts, drawing inspiration from Wonderland-like wordplay and playful constraints.
  • Prototype various prompts, experimenting with different approaches to achieve the desired results.
  • Test and analyze AI outputs, using design thinking's iterative mindset to refine prompts and improve collaboration with the AI.
