GitHub and OpenAI, owned by Microsoft, have introduced a technical preview of a new AI device. Co-pilot… The popular cross-platform source code editor has become part of Visual Studio Code and is designed to complete code snippets automatically. I.e., to the shelf Developmental Assistants The developers arrived.
According to GitHub, the pilot does not copy or copy snippets of previously seen source code. Instead, the system analyzes the written code and generates the appropriate new code, including the individual functions previously used. Examples on the project website include auto-write code for importing tweets, planning a scatter plot, or getting a GoodRed rating.
GitHub sees development as an evolution of the concept of pair programming – the two work together on a project to effectively “catch” each other’s mistakes to speed up the process. In co-pilot, one of the coders is a virtual assistant.
In fact, it is the first major product since Microsoft Deposited One billion dollars in the development of OpenAI. It will initially be available as a browser browser plugin and visual studio code, but OpenAI will release an API in August 2021 so that third-party developers can take advantage of the codecs in their applications.
So far, the co-pilot is in a limited technical beta, but those who wish can register on the project website. Access it.
