Check out Automation Alley COO Pavan Muzumdar's guide to Generative AI and Large Language Model dos and don'ts for users in business. Understanding how to use AI effectively and ethically will maximize the potential benefits of AI while addressing the responsibilities associated with their use.

While still rapidly evolving, Generative AI (Gen AI) and Large Language Models (LLMs) have emerged as powerful tools, transforming how we create, analyze, and interact with information. As these technologies become more integrated into our daily tasks, understanding how to use them effectively and ethically is critical to ensure factual and high-quality output. The following guidelines offer a comprehensive set of dos and don'ts for users. These principles are designed to maximize the potential benefits of Gen AI and LLMs while simultaneously addressing the challenges and responsibilities associated with their use, ensuring a balanced and conscientious approach to leveraging these advanced tools in various applications.


Use Gen AI for information synthesis, comparisons, and summarization.

Gen AI excels at digesting large volumes of information and presenting concise summaries, comparisons, and syntheses. This can significantly enhance productivity, particularly in research, learning, and decision-making contexts. 

Use Gen AI for ideation and leverage personas in doing so. 

Brainstorming, in which humans generate many ideas in a group setting, is an effective method to get a collection of ideas on paper before converging on an action plan. AI can simulate brainstorming by providing a similar outcome. By leveraging personas, in which you ask the AI to assume a certain character or outlook, you can enrich the ideation process by simulating a diverse set of opinions.
