As you see , We put a Default professional  " system prompt "

You are a helpful, respectful and honest assistant with a deep knowledge of code and software design. Always answer as helpfully as possible, while being safe. Your answers should not include any harmful, unethical, racist, sexist, toxic, dangerous, or illegal content. Please ensure that your responses are socially unbiased and positive in nature.

If a question does not make any sense, or is not factually coherent, explain why instead of answering something not correct. If you don't know the answer to a question, please don't share false information.

 


 

How to Use our Default System Prompt For Llama 2

Alongside the main text prompt, LLaMA 2 also uses something , as i told you, called " System prompt " . By using the "system prompt" feature, you can specify the field or topic you want the bot to assist you with, and the bot will respond accordingly. This can be a great way to get more specific and relevant information from the bot, and can help you to get the most out of your conversation with it.

 

For example

If you want to get information about the psychiatric field, you can use the "system prompt" feature to tell the bot that you want it to act as a psychiatric expert, or that you want it to provide information about the psychiatric field. This will help the bot to understand what you're looking for and provide more relevant and accurate information.

 


 

Examples of how the "system prompt" feature can be used in a Llama 2 chatbot:

Medical field:

If you want to get information about a specific medical condition, you can use the "system prompt" feature to tell the bot that you want it to act as a medical expert.

For example
  • you can say "Act as a medical expert"
  • or "I want information about a specific medical condition."
  • Or remove this default part " code and software designs " in the system prompt,  and add instead " medical field "
  • This will help the bot to provide more relevant and accurate information.

 

Financial field:

If you want to get information about investing or financial planning, you can use the "system prompt" feature to tell the bot that you want it to act as a financial advisor.

For example
  • You can say "Act as a financial advisor"
  • or "I want information about investing."
  • Or remove this default part " code and software designs " in the system prompt,  and add instead " financial field "
  • This will help the bot to provide more relevant and accurate information

 

Legal field:

If you want to get information about legal issues or legal advice, you can use the "system prompt" feature to tell the bot that you want it to act as a lawyer.

For example
  • You can say "Act as a lawyer"
  • or "I want information about legal issues."
  • Or remove this default part " code and software designs " in the system prompt,  and add instead "Legal field "
  • This will help the bot to provide more relevant and accurate  results .

 

Second : Max New Token

The Max New Token option controls the maximum number of new tokens that Llama2 can generate. By default, Llama 2 generates up to 20 new tokens, but you can adjust this value to generate more or fewer new tokens.

 

For example

If you're generating text for a highly technical or specialized field, you might want to set Max New Token to a higher value to ensure that Llama2 generates more accurate and specialized language. On the other hand, if you're generating text for a more general or broad audience, you might want to set Max New Token to a lower value to ensure that the generated text is more accessible and relatable.

 


 

Third : Temperature Feature of Llama 2 chatbot

The Temperature option controls the randomness of the generated text. A higher temperature means more randomness, while a lower temperature means less randomness. By adjusting the temperature, you can fine-tune your results to suit your needs.

 

For Example

if you're generating text for a creative writing project, you might want to set the temperature to a higher value to encourage more experimental and unconventional ideas. On the other hand, if you're generating text for a more formal or technical project, you might want to set the temperature to a lower value to ensure that the generated text is more coherent and well-structured.

 


 

Fourth: Top-K Feature of Llama 2

The Top-K option controls the number of candidates that Llama2 considers when generating text. By default, Llama2 considers the top 40 candidates, but you can adjust this value to generate more or fewer candidates.

 

For example

if you're generating text for a highly competitive market, you might want to set Top-K to a higher value to ensure that Llama2 considers a wider range of possibilities. On the other hand, if you're generating text for a more niche market, you might want to set Top-K to a lower value to focus on more specific and relevant ideas.

 


 

Fifth : Top-P Feature of Llama 2

The Top-P option controls the probability of each candidate being selected. By default, Llama2 selects the candidate with the highest probability, but you can adjust this value to generate more diverse or unexpected results.

 

For example

if you're generating text for a creative writing project, you might want to set Top-P to a lower value to encourage more experimental and unconventional ideas. On the other hand, if you're generating text for a more formal or technical project, you might want to set Top-P to a higher value to ensure that the generated text is more coherent and well-structured.
