AWS Discovery Day - Introduction to Promt Engineering (Webinar)

In this webinar, you will learn how to create and optimize prompts for a variety of generative AI models. First, this course covers the basics of foundation models, including a subset of foundation models (FMs), called large language models (LLMs). Then, the course covers the fundamental concepts of prompt engineering, such as the different elements of a prompt and some general best practices for using prompts effectively. Finally, the course provides information about basic prompt techniques, including zero-shot, few-shot, and chain-of-thought (CoT) prompting.
