Newsletter 615

11th April 2024

Stephen PhillipsThe art of crafting AI prompts was the focus of our recent Community session.


Eldad Sotnick-Yogev gave us his insights into using prompts in GenAI systems, including a good Star Wars analogy:


"When it comes to AI Prompting, talk to it like Luke Skywalker would talk to C3PO, rather than shout at it like Han Solo did."


As it turns out, the best prompts are a combination of a reference interview and Boolean operators - skills that information professionals have in abundance and which uniquely position us to be powerful users of these technologies.


Review our recorded webinar and accompanying report, complete with practical examples of how to build prompts for more effective results.


Outsource or AI-Source?


As part of our current research into outsource and offshore trends, we’ll be sharing and discussing our initial findings in our Community session, "Offshore, outsource or AI-source?" (16th April 2024). 


We are particularly looking at how AI is affecting the industry and looking to understand how AI-Sourcing will impact resourcing decisions in the future.

US private company information


Given limited disclosure regulations, US Private companies have always been difficult to research.


We’re currently talking to a number of information suppliers about:

  • the recent Corporate Transparency Act which requires private enterprises to submit beneficial ownership reports to the US Treasury Department
  • how the reports will find their way into the public domain
  • the explosion of new companies promoting their use of AI to combine unstructured data from a range of sources to piece together a picture of the health of these companies.

If you can contribute to this project (either as a researcher/buyer/user or as a vendor), please reply to this email.
