Has anyone had success asking Chat GPT for Airtable formulas? I've only asked it a few Airtable related questions so far, but I have to correct them all. Curious if anyone knows if there's a specific way to ask that will get formulas in the correct Airtable format.

Does ChatGPT learn through your conversations when you’ve had to correct it?

It flops back and forth, correcting some things and reverting other things that we just discussed >2 messages ago. Haven't had much success.

No. Airtable formulas are generally not exposed as code (like Excel and Sheets); therefore, there's no learning corpus for this closed formula system.

Feedback loops do exist in GP3 and Chat, however, it takes a lot of data to change how it behaves. If you want an improved version of ChatGPT specific to your world, you have to train an enhanced version of the model.

Try some prompt engineering to elevate its intelligence. But be cautious about this approach - here's why.

I found this website. It uses GPT to write formula for you. Hope it's useful for you!

I don't typically write Airtable formulas because of this, but I'm sure a lot of people will like this.

UPDATE: Dream On...
A clean implementation of AI-based formula assistance is not likely to happen for a few years, if ever. Airtable is a closed formulaic system like Coda. There is no “code” [per se] for it to learn from because you are writing psuedo code to begin with - formulas are a proprietary abstraction layer. So either Airtable must train a fine-tuned LLM and open-source it, or a group of developers could take this challenge. It’s a lot of work, and it requires internal access or independent development of a formula parser. Read more here.
