I've come across numerous articles discussing the potential emergence of "AI prompting" as a distinct profession in the near future. I've also noticed a surge in courses aligning with this trend.
I respectfully disagree.
In my opinion, prompt engineering will become a skill, akin to writing. The growth of AI is undeniable, and its influence will span across many industries. Hence, I feel that a proficient professional should be adept at creating effective prompts in order to get the best output. This ability will be assessed as a valuable skill.
While there may be dedicated roles centered on prompt creation in the immediate future, given the ongoing evolution of this field, I foresee it ultimately becoming a standard skill set for professionals.
Disclaimer: I am talking for the prompts that users enter within the UI of the LLM, not the prompts that are used by developers in the training of an LLM or in the development of software applications.
