ChatGPT for Data Science Cheat Sheet KD Nugget

KD Nuggets: “…The problem that we are currently grappling with is one of expectations: some expect that ChatGPT is nothing more than a stochastic parrot that produces rubbish and is completely useless, while others seem to think (either pessimistically or optimistically, depending on who you ask) that ChatGPT will be taking over the world, while either ridding us of monotony or laying waste to human civilization. 

If we all tempered our expectations and recognized this technology for what it is, and what it could be useful for, we would all be far better off. But in the era of outrage and hyperbole, nuance takes a back seat to hot takes. 

But I digress. ChatGPT (and, indeed, the most robust and latest versions of GPT3) is meant to assist (that’s right… assist!) humans that decide to use it as such, and with a little help from your friends at KDnuggets you will be able to hone your prompt engineering skills to do useful things like generate code, assist in your research process, and analyze data.
