In recent news, GitHub and OpenAI have launched a new AI tool called ‘Copilot’ which is a part of the Visual Studio Code editor and overall autocompletes code snippets.
However, it does more than just place in code as according to GitHub it instead analyzes the code you have written, and based on that code is written similar code is generated which includes specific functions.
Overall, this is the next step in automation especially in terms of programming as working with copilot will be equivalent to like having someone assisting in a project.
Copilot is a resultant of Microsoft’s $1 billion investment into OpenAI which started working on the GPT-3 algorithm. The research firm is now led by Y Combinator President Sam Altman which was the main person to help the project get accelerated in the first place.
