About This Intelligence Community Online Course

This self-paced, online course, created by FedLearn content partner, ChatGPT Trainings, will empower you to harness the full potential of OpenAI’s revolutionary tool, ChatGPT, through the art of prompt engineering. In simple terms, prompt engineering is an artificial intelligence/natural language processing concept that involves refining AI inputs (typically as a query) to yield beneficial text outputs.

ChatGPT is a text-to-text generative AI that is reshaping the way people interact with technology and provides a myriad of applications across various industries.

In this online course, you will learn to effectively apply ChatGPT to relevant use cases in the Intelligence Community and tackle the unique challenges of working with sensitive data and information with AI models. Throughout the course, we’ll guide you through various prompt engineering techniques, enabling you to craft better AI prompts and achieve more accurate and tailored outputs.

The course is made up of four lessons:

  • Introduction
  • Prompt Engineering
  • Best Practices
  • Next Steps (including Intelligence Community use case deep dives)

What You Will Learn

  • Understand ChatGPT—its capabilities, limitations and its position in the AI landscape
  • Effectively apply prompt engineering techniques in intelligence analysis—leveraging ChatGPT to address relevant Intelligence Community use cases and challenges involving sensitive data and information
  • Learn how to communicate with ChatGPT in a conversational manner—providing clear feedback and context refinement for improved outputs
  • Grasp how to use advanced prompt engineering techniques, such as [format] and “act as,” to guide ChatGPT’s responses and train it to reflect your unique writing style
  • Understand responsible ChatGPT use by assessing and managing associated risks—particularly when handling sensitive data—taking appropriate precautions and consulting legal departments, when necessary
  • Describe advancements in AI language models and how to access and leverage new features and extended context capabilities of tools like GPT-4

Your Instructor

Nathan Hunter, the founder of ChatGPT Trainings and Amazon bestselling author of The Art of Prompt Engineering with ChatGPT. Mr. Hunter is working to shift organizations from a basic “try this prompt’” approach to using AI-enabled tools, such as ChatGPT, to a more nuanced mastery of prompt engineering. This new skill is vital to both the public and private sector workforces as technology pivots away from graphical user interfaces to conversational interfaces. Having lead training courses in more than 30 countries over the past decade in both technical and “soft” skills, he brings a unique and engaging training approach that places the learner experience at the heart of each course.
