Anthropic Develops a New Tool to Automate Prompt Engineering

IBL News | New York

Anthropic released a new feature on its Claude 3.5 Sonnet console this month, which allows prompts to be generated, tested, and evaluated. It takes a short task description and constructs a much longer, fleshed-out prompt, utilizing Anthropic’s prompt engineering techniques.

The Claude console offers a built-in prompt generator powered by Claude 3.5 Sonnet. This generator allows users to describe their tasks and generate a high-quality prompt.

The test case generation feature allows the creation of input variables for the prompt. This means that developers can compare the effectiveness of various prompts side-by-side and rate sample answers on a five-point scale.

The Anthropic Console is a test kitchen for developers, created to attract businesses looking to build products with Claude.

It can save developers time and effort, especially with little or no prompt engineering experience.

Crafting high-quality prompts is challenging. It requires deep knowledge of your application’s needs and expertise with large language models. Prompt engineering has become a highly demanded job in the AI industry.

“Prompt engineering is one of the most important things for widespread enterprise adoption of generative AI; it sounds simple, but 30 minutes with a prompt engineer can often make an application work when it wasn’t before,” said Anthropic CEO and co-founder Dario Amodei.
