Do you have what it takes to be a prompt engineer? Based on the rap battle format, a prompt battle is a is a live event where people compete against each other using language. Image descriptions, aka prompts, are typed into OpenAI’s AI-powered text-to-image software DALL·E, which then uses them to generate photos, images and illustrations. Participants show off their prompt skills in seven prompt battle rounds. The audience chooses a winner who, in their opinion, elicited the most surprising, disturbing or beautiful AI images.

The prompt battle team: Sebastian Schmieg, Florian A. Schmidt, Bernadette Geiger, Robert Hellwig, Emmy Krause, Lina Schwarzenberg, Levi Stein and Ella Zickerick from Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Dresden.
