This article delves into the intricacies of creating a recursive loop with Generative Pretrained Transformer (GPT) models for code creation and optimization. It discusses the concept of Recursive Self Training Transformers (RSTTs), their implementation, and the challenges of writing prompts.
In the realm of artificial intelligence, Generative Pretrained Transformer (GPT) models are emerging as a powerful tool for code creation, amongst other things. We propose, unlike traditional GPTs, Recursive Self Training Transformers (RSTTs): continuously training and improving themselves, striving for perfection in the form of error-free responses. This article delves into the intricacies of creating a recursive loop with GPT models and the challenges of writing prompts, which can be likened to a new, high-level programming language.
Recursive GPT Models: A New Paradigm
The concept of recursive GPT models is a significant departure from traditional GPTs. Instead of being pre-trained, these models recursively train themselves, continuously refining their responses until they achieve the best possible result. This process of self-improvement is continuous, leading to increasingly accurate and efficient code generation.
A proof-of-concept (POC) of this approach involves a chained solution between GPT models, GitHub, and Selenium. The model generates code based on a prompt, creates necessary files with correct names, and writes the generated code to them. The code is then deployed to a server automatically using Git actions. The implementation is run with a Selenium instance, and visual inspections are performed using computer vision. Debug logs are inspected for troubleshooting, and the loop continues until the desired implementation is complete and working. The GPT model is then fine-tuned with optimizations extracted from the previous processes, ready to be used in the next loop.
The Simplicity and Complexity of Recursive Loops
Creating a recursive loop with a GPT model is relatively straightforward. The model is designed to generate code based on a given prompt, create the necessary files, and write the generated code to them. It then deploys the code to a server automatically using Git actions, runs the implementation with a Selenium instance, and performs visual inspections using computer vision. The model inspects debug logs for troubleshooting and continues the loop until the desired implementation is complete and working.
However, the complexity lies in writing the prompts. The prompts are essentially a new, high-level programming language that guides the GPT model in generating the desired code. Crafting these prompts requires a deep understanding of the problem at hand, the desired solution, and the capabilities and limitations of the GPT model. It’s akin to providing detailed instructions to a highly intelligent but literal-minded assistant. The prompts need to be precise, clear, and comprehensive to ensure the GPT model generates the correct code.
GPT being a large language model does not make things easier: its responses (especially the response format) is somewhat unpredictable.
The Future of Code Creation and Optimization
Recursive GPT models represent a promising future for code creation and optimization. They automate much of the tedious and repetitive aspects of coding, freeing developers to focus on more complex and creative tasks. Moreover, the continuous self-improvement of these models ensures that the generated code becomes increasingly accurate and efficient over time.
However, the use of recursive GPT models also presents challenges. The complexity of writing prompts, in particular, requires a new set of skills and a deep understanding of both the problem and the GPT model. As such, developers and organizations looking to leverage these models will need to invest in training and development to fully harness their potential.
In conclusion, recursive GPT models offer a powerful tool for code creation and optimization. While they present new challenges, the potential benefits they offer in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and automation make them a compelling option for developers and organizations. As these models continue to evolve and improve, they are set to play a significant role in the future of coding.
To explore the potential of GPT models in general, we created a side project, as a playground to explore and test new ideas, focussing on all things “Artificial Intelligence”.
