I am an ML newbie. As such I have been spending a lot of my time reading the forum and documentation. I have implemented the completions endpoint via the API and am now using it for basic activities. E.g. summarising, spelling, proofing, etc. inside of Google Docs.
I’d really like to understand more about providing examples or multiple shots to a model in order to answer a question better. Specifically with text-davinci-003.
First, what are the terms or semantics here. Is a “shot” the same as an “example”?
How detailed should or can an example be?
Are examples remembered by the model between calls? If so, are they remembered for all time? And if so, how do you prompt the model to reuse this memory?
This does not appeared to be covered and I think it is such a basic thing. But also from what I have read fundamental. So I’d like to be getting it right as I feel it will improve my results.
