ChatGPT Cheat Sheet for Data Scientists

ChatGPT Cheat Sheet for Data Scientists

With the explosion of data being generated, data scientists are facing increased pressure to analyze and interpret large amounts of text data effectively. However, this can be a challenging task, especially when dealing with unstructured data. Additionally, data scientists often spend a significant amount of time manually generating text and answering complex questions, which can be a time-consuming process. Welcome ChatGPT! ChatGPT offer a powerful solution to these challenges.

By learning different ChatGPT prompts, data scientists can significantly become super productive while generating relevant insights, answer complex questions, and perform machine learning tasks with ease such as data preprocessing, hypothesis testing, training models, etc. In this blog, I will provide a cheat sheet for data scientists that outlines various ChatGPT prompts along with the information on its output and benefits.

Setting up ChatGPT for Data Science Activities

In order to try some of the prompts mentioned in the next section, you would need to set up ChatGPT by asking it to behave like an expert data scientist and learn the data set that you would be working with for your data science projects. You would be required to share a sample data to you. Thus, the following can be the first prompt after which you can try rest of the prompts mentioned in the next section.

Be an expert data scientist. Help me extract insights from the data.
