6 Useful Strategies for Engaging with Anthropic's Claude Chatbot

Joel Lewenstein, who oversees product design at Anthropic, found himself in a puzzling situation while">king the irrigation system under his new home: The controls on the device were baffling. Rather than searching online for a user guide, he launched the Anthropic’s Claude chatbot app on his smartphone and took a picture. The chatbot's AI processed the photo and offered insights into the functions of the various knobs.

In my experience with evaluating OpenAI's visual capabilities for ChatGPT previously, I discovered they were quite helpful, particularly for minor tasks. My advice would be to utilize AI-driven image recognition for figuring out what those miscellaneous cables in your home are for, but I wouldn't rely on it to determine what a stray prescription tablet might be.

Earlier this month, Anthropic launched a new iOS application designed to assist Lewenstein,">king it available for everyone to download. I took the initiative to test the Claude app, aligning with my objective to explore a broader range of chatbots throughout the year. Additionally, I had a video conversation with Lewenstein to gather insights on how to effectively begin using Claude and strategies for posing questions to garner the most beneficial responses.

Engage in Conversation

Years of relying on Google Search to navigate the internet have conditioned us to craft sharp, brief search terms for our inquiries. However, when interacting with chatbots like Claude, adopting a different tactic is crucial. Lewenstein points out, "This isn't Google Search. You're not just dropping in a trio of keywords—you're engaging in an actual dialogue." He advises users to step away from a strictly functional way of communicating and to embrace a more detailed approach in their queries. Rather than limiting yourself to a succinct phrase, consider formulating your prompts into longer sentences or even full paragraphs.

Photo Sharing

The capability of analyzing images via AI is a relatively recent addition to Anthropic's chatbot, having been introduced in March. This feature offers an effective method to rapidly engage the chatbot with inquiries. Lewenstein suggests initiating dialogues with Claude by sharing pictures, similar to his experience beneath his house. While this function might not always deliver precise results, it remains both practical and entertaining, provided that users are aware of its constraints and identify moments when a photo could effectively convey their question.

Get Straight to the Point

If you’re not achieving the desired results, one effective strategy is to provide highly detailed instructions in your queries. According to Lewenstein, engaging with Claude as though it were a human can actually mislead you. Instead, it's beneficial to provide a detailed explanation of how you expect the response to be structured – for instance, specifying that you want the information in list form or concise paragraphs, and directing the type of language it should use. Are you looking for poetic responses or ones with a more technical vibe? It's also wise to inform Claude about your target audience and their familiarity with the subject matter.

Persevere with Effort

Should your first attempt at engaging Claude fall short of expectations, remember that it marks merely the beginning. Continuing to ask further questions and seeking clarification are essential steps in guiding a chatbot towards the desired outcome.

Whenever I communicate with a chatbot, I tend to initiate a new chat thread immediately if the response isn't satisfactory, aiming to experiment with an alternate starting prompt. However, Lewenstein argues that this method is not ideal.

Lewenstein recommends remaining in the current chat interface and offering immediate critiques to the bot regarding desired changes, whether it's about the tone or the format. He shares an example, saying, “I actually just type, ‘No, too complicated. I'm not familiar with these terms. Could you give it another shot, but make it a bit simpler,” referring to an instance where Claude's explanation of a document was perplexing.

Document Analysis Capabilities

Exploring the realm of document management, one of Claude’s standout capabilities is its prowess in dissecting and understanding the data fed into it. This function shines particularly in professional settings, aiding users with tasks related to hefty Excel files and cluttered email accounts. However, its utility extends beyond the workplace. By analyzing large volumes of text, Claude is adept at uncovering patterns and trends that may elude the human eye. You can request the chatbot to delve into linguistic styles or subject matters within the text. Facing a lengthy PDF that’s daunting to tackle? Claude can assist by zeroing in on the document's key elements, making the reading process more manageable.

I sent Claude the text transcript of my dialogue with Lewenstein to see which statements it would mark as significant. The chatbot excelled in identifying the main points of our discussion, highlighting numerous quotes that I ended up selecting for this newsletter. According to Anthropic's guidelines, unless you give your consent, it's improbable that your submitted data will be utilized to refine its AI systems.

Communicate as Though You're Close Companions

Indeed, experimenting with crafting detailed and extended queries for Claude is beneficial, but engaging with chatbots through a series of brief, interactive exchanges is equally effective. “I personally believe that the mobile application offers a very intuitive platform for this, given how frequently we engage in text conversations with others on our phones,” Lewenstein remarks.

After sharing an image of an artistic robot mural discovered in a trendy San Francisco pub on the Claude app, the chatbot responded with a poetic interpretation of the artwork. It couldn't pinpoint the exact location of the pub, a challenge that seemed nearly insurmountable, yet the flow of our exchange resembled chatting with an enthusiastic buddy. When I disclosed the whereabouts of the pub, Claude expressed gratitude, stating, "My assumptions were delightfully upended."

To truly master Claude, I believe I need more practice with it, yet I already sense a genial touch in its responses. While ChatGPT remains my preferred choice for a chatbot, I'm open to incorporating Claude into my repertoire, especially when I'm in search of an AI companion that emphasizes captivating, lifelike interactions rather than a straightforward, methodical approach. It's crucial to stay receptive to experimenting with new AI tools. Given the swift evolution and enhancement of chatbots, it's premature to limit oneself to just one option.
