Telling artificial intelligence models to “think” step by step when carrying out a task can improve their performance so much that they can outperform humans at jobs AIs usually struggle with.
Using the phrase “let’s think step by step” to cajole AIs into taking more logical decisions was first suggested in a May study presented at a computational neuroscience conference. Such “chain-of-thought” prompting encourages these models, which include GPT-3, a text-generating AI developed by …
