Zero-shot Prompt

Zero-shot prompt refers to a situation where an AI model generates an output or completes a task without any prior specific training or examples on that task. The model uses its general understanding from pre-training to generate the response, hence the term 'zero-shot', indicating no additional training shots were given for that specific task. This concept is often used in Natural Language Processing and machine learning models.
