In recent news, GitHub and OpenAI announced the release of a new AI tool dubbed ‘Copilot,’ which is integrated into the Visual Studio Code editor and autocompletes code snippets.
However, it does more than just insert code; according to GitHub, it analyzes the code you’ve written and generates similar code that includes certain methods depending on that code.
Overall, this is the next step in automation, particularly in programming, because working with copilot is like to having someone assist you with a project.
Copilot is the product of Microsoft’s $1 billion investment in OpenAI, which began developing the GPT-3 algorithm. The research firm is currently run by Y Combinator President Sam Altman, who was instrumental in getting the initiative started in the first place.
