ChatGPT for Data Science Cheat Sheet

The latest KDnuggets cheat sheet covers using ChatGPT to your advantage as a data scientist. It's time to master prompt engineering, and here is a handy reference for helping you along the way.


The Rise of ChatOps

You probably haven't heard of ChatGPT yet... ????

Aside from stealing your job, spreading lies, and plagiarizing on a mass scale (varying degrees of sarcasm intended for each of those common points of detraction), ChatGPT can also be very useful for the average data scientist in their day to day life.

The problem that we are currently grappling with is one of expectations: some expect that ChatGPT is nothing more than a stochastic parrot that produces rubbish and is completely useless, while others seem to think (either pessimistically or optimistically, depending on who you ask) that ChatGPT will be taking over the world, while either ridding us of monotony or laying waste to human civilization. If we all tempered our expectations and recognized this technology for what it is, and what it could be useful for, we would all be far better off. But in the era of outrage and hyperbole, nuance takes a back seat to hot takes. But I digress.

ChatGPT (and, indeed, the most robust and latest versions of GPT3) is meant to assist (that's right... assist!) humans that decide to use it as such, and with a little help from your friends at KDnuggets you will be able to hone your prompt engineering skills to do useful things like generate code, assist in your research process, and analyze data.

ChatGPT for Data Science Cheat Sheet


ChatGPT is a large language conversational AI built by OpenAI. It was trained using Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback, similar to InstructGPT. ChatGPT understands the prompt and provides detailed repose that can help you with research, coding, and various data science tasks.


In this cheat sheet, Abid Ali Awan covers the following useful topics for data scientists using ChatGPT:

  • Idea generation
  • Coding
  • SQL
  • Spreadsheets
  • Data analysis
  • Machine Learning
  • Research

Bill Gates (among many, many others) has recognized that ChatGPT and related technologies are going to transform the world in which we live. But that's not necessarily a bad thing: if you learn to leverage and master ChatGPT and other LLM innovations in the same vein now, you are a step ahead of the game. Not learning how to use the machine is the greatest threat the machine poses to you or your career, so wrangle the robot now, and be a leader in these everchanging times.
