Prompt Loop


Modern AI models are very powerful and can cover many tasks and aspects from both technical and business sides. However, working with AI, it's important to keep in mind how AI works and behaves. Due to the nature of models, the production solution may face several challenges:

  • Consistency in generation results.

  • Quality of result content and its application to the expected result.

  • Too much creativity due to unclear input.

  • And more.

To improve prompt quality and result consistency, there's a process we call a Prompt Loop. A properly established Prompt Loop process can improve generation results, reduce retries, and enhance generation consistency. In this process, a Prompt Engineer uses feedback to tune prompts and align them with your business expectations. Feedback can be received from Prompt Evaluators (who can be your dev team, SMEs, or even your end-users). Additionally, feedback can be used to fine-tune the model or even train your custom one.

Key Steps

To create a proper Prompt Loop process it's essential to cover steps of prompt testing, evaluation and tuning. Here is some insights about these steps.

Prompt Evaluation

Regular evaluation and feedback are critical components of prompt engineering. Prompt engineers should actively solicit feedback from users, domain experts, and other stakeholders to assess the effectiveness of prompts and identify areas for improvement. By analyzing feedback and evaluation results, prompt engineers can iteratively refine prompts to enhance their quality and relevance.

Prompt A/B testing

Experimentation and testing are essential for validating the effectiveness of prompts and assessing their impact on AI model performance. Prompt engineers should conduct controlled experiments and A/B tests to compare the performance of different prompts and identify the most effective ones. By leveraging experimentation and testing, prompt engineers can make informed decisions about which prompts to use and how to further refine them for optimal results.

Prompt Tuning

To fine-tune prompts effectively, prompt engineers leverage feedback and testing information to adjust prompts and align them with business requirements. This process involves handling errors, refining prompts based on user feedback, and extending initial prompts with new parameters or information as needed. By incorporating tuning alongside Prompt Version Control, engineers can track improvements and applied changes systematically, ensuring consistency in results over time. This iterative approach to prompt refinement and version control enables continuous enhancement of AI model performance while maintaining alignment with evolving business needs.
