Before diving into this methodology, it’s crucial to engage in a thoughtful analysis with your team at every step of the process. Ask yourselves: Is AI or GenAI truly the best fit for solving your specific challenge?

While the capabilities of GenAI are undoubtedly impressive, it’s a common mistake to try to apply it as a one-size-fits-all solution.

Sometimes, even though GenAI can address the issue, it’s essential to ensure you’re not committing overkill by deploying this advanced technology for issues that might be resolved with simpler approaches.

A Step-by-Step Guide

Experimenting with AI technologies like GPT or Gemini offers a unique advantage.

Initially, we suggest diving in with different prompts and sample data, including images and audio, by chatting with the models on platforms like OpenAI or Gemini. We recommend working with the latest models at this stage for the most up-to-date experience.

Enriched with the learnings from your chats, you could choose to wrap up the experimentation phase here. Or, you can take it a step further by creating GPTs. The leap to GPTs is significant; they are much more powerful.

Beyond just interacting with prompts, you can upload documents (up to 20), write and execute code, browse the web, and importantly, call external APIs. These actions in GPTs extend the scope of your experiment, opening up new avenues for exploration and innovation.

How to Create a Custom GPT?

Creating a GPT model within the OpenAI platform can enhance your applications by integrating advanced AI capabilities.

By seamlessly integrating these AI tools, teams can foster a culture of innovation, encouraging the exploration of new ideas and solutions for specific tasks and issues.

Here’s a concise guide on how to get started:

1. Access Your Account:
  • Log in to your OpenAI account.
  • Go to the “Explore GPTs” section.
2. Create New GPT:
  • Click the “Create” button located in the upper right corner.
3. Configure Your GPT:

You will be directed to a setup screen.

  • Click on “Configure”.
  • Assign a name to your GPT.
  • Create a brief description of what this GPT does.
  • Provide a detailed and effective prompt about the GPT’s functionality, including context, purpose, and steps, within an 8000-character limit. Don’t forget to approach this with patience; iterate as much as necessary on the right side of the screen labeled “previews” to reach the outcomes you’re aiming for.
  • Optionally, click on the + symbol and upload an image, or let DALL-E generate one automatically.
4. Create Conversation Starters

Generate brief prompts for the first iteration with the GPT to guide user interactions. We suggest adding not more than 4 because only this quantity may be visible at the moment.

5. Upload Knowledge:
  • In the setup, you can upload files that the GPT will use as knowledge sources. GPTs support various file formats If you upload files, remember to enable the Code Interpreter option that is below the knowledge option (we’ll show it in the next step.)

Authentication Options:
  • None: Select if no authentication is required.
  • API Key: Choose if the external API requires an API key.
  • OAuth: Opt for this if the API requires OAuth authentication for secure access.
  • Input or import the OpenAPI schema directly in the text box or from a URL. This schema details the GPT’s interaction with the external API.
  • Use predefined examples like “Weather (JSON)” or “Pet Store (YAML)” as templates, which you can modify to suit your needs.
8. Bring your GPT to life
  • Click on “Create” at the top right of the screen.
  • You will be redirected to this screen. Choose the option that best suits you.
  • Click on the “save” button.

9. Optimize as Needed

Should you encounter any performance issues or wish to refine your GPT’s output, don’t hesitate to revisit the GPT’s configuration settings. You can make adjustments to meet your requirements. Remember to save your changes to apply them.

10. Consider Sharing

Decide if you’ll keep it for personal use, share it with your team or community, or publish it on the GPT store. This choice lets you select the ideal way to use your creation, be it for personal, collaborative, or public use.

By following these steps, you will effectively set up a custom GPT tailored to your specific requirements, leveraging OpenAI’s advanced capabilities to enhance your application or service.

On this path, emphasizing security from the outset is paramount. Click here and get to know our tips for using ChatGPT safely in your organization.

Move forward by creating a Proof of Concept (POC) or, even better, a Proof of Value (POV). This step is crucial for demonstrating the feasibility and potential impact of your AI business idea.

Rapid prototyping, enabled by AI allows for the swift creation and testing. This approach is not just about speed but also about learning and adapting, embodying the principles of computer science and software engineering.

Consider these steps:

  1. Idea Validation: Use AI (chatGPT or Gemini) in the creative process to quickly test and elaborate your ideas.
  2. User Feedback: Incorporate early user feedback to refine your prototype, leveraging intelligent programming environments.
  3. Iterative Development: Continuously improve your prototype based on data and insights.

By embracing rapid prototyping, you can navigate the complexities of engineering projects with agility and confidence. This process accelerates development and enables the final product to meet user needs and stands the test of time, demonstrating the practical application of AI software systems.

Create Alliances

The key is to start small, learn quickly, iterate, and share knowledge with the community, enabling each experiment to be aligned with the project’s goals and user needs.

At Abstracta, in partnership with Microsoft, we built our own AI Chat that includes GPT, Claude, Llama, and multiple LLMS using this approach. Take a look at our unique approach and how we did it, enabling our own team and also other companies worldwide to experiment faster and more securely.

4. Leverage Microsoft AI Co-Innovation Labs
