Arcade Game: Prompt Battle Training Station

Prompts are clearly formulated instructions or questions that are used to generate specific reactions or responses from an AI program. Here, at the Prompt Battle Training Station visitors can practice their prompting skills.

Inspired by the rap battle format, people compete against each other live in a prompt battle using language. Image descriptions, known as prompts, are typed into AI-supported text-to-image software, which then generates photos, images and illustrations. Visitors can train their skills for this show format at the Prompt Battle Training Station. They are also invited to reflect on the possible consequences of the rapidly advancing development of such AI systems.
