Microsoft had announced an AI tool that will help the coders and the programmers by giving them suggestions to the programming that they are doing. This is going to be a very impressive tool that can change the way of programming too. Microsoft had been looking for a way to make programming easier since the company was founded in 1975. Now that dream may finally come true.
Microsoft’s chief technology officer, Kevin Scott, has seen that happen firsthand. “It may very well be one of those things that makes programming itself more approachable,” Scott said.
“It can save me from having to dive through a whole bunch of documentation to get a tool to do a thing that I know it’s capable of doing, and that is so good for productivity,” he said. “I can’t even tell you the number of hours I’ve wasted trying to figure out the right way to do a relatively prosaic thing, just navigating the complexity of these tools.”
The system is called GitHub Co-pilot. It can prove to be very useful to the technology industry as well as the field of programming. A world where everything involves some sort of programming is what we are living in now. Computer engineers and programmers are in high demand. The AI tool will be a stepping stone towards a better future.
Nat Friedman, CEO of GitHub, describes GitHub Copilot as “a virtual version of what software creators call a pair programmer”. So if you are a programmer that is looking forward to this, then we expect you to be extremely happy at this announcement!
