Hi, folks! Just like many of you, I have been playing around with ChatGPT and decided to see how well it would perform as a first-responder to new questions posted to the forum. Given the amount of HDF5-related documentation and source code on the web it gives (at times) some pretty good advice.
So far, I’ve got better results by writing a preamble that gives some context to ChatGPT (“The question in the following sentences relates to the HDF5 software project. Please provide guidance as appropriate.”), followed by the topic’s title and the actual question. Here are a couple of answers it generated:
Topic: Not able to see the data in the created .h5 file
Topic: Segfault at exit with HDF5/netCDF4
It is unlikely that a Discourse bot would beat a human when questions demand more specialized knowledge, but perhaps they could prove useful to steer users towards an answer until someone looks into their issue. Overall, this just sounds like something worth considering (perhaps as a hackaton).
