In a few years, 2023 will be known as the year in which AI was the protagonist. Throughout the few months that we have been in the year, companies have launched their different proposals for models that use artificial intelligence to develop any type of activity and, today, we have a new one: GitHub CopilotX.
Well, we actually have two new AI models since Adobe released Adobe Firefly just a few hours ago. Of course, these two new AI have nothing to do with each other since they are intended for completely different fields. Being Adobe Firefly a generative image model and GitHub Copilot X a kind of ChatGPT for programmers.
Yes, the new thing about GitHub is what can be broadly understood as an assistant with Artificial Intelligence when programming. This new helper called GitHub Copilot X comes with a series of features that makes it very interesting, although it already starts with helping developers to program.
This new AI has an OpenAI Codex model which makes it capable of writing 46% of the code of the platform, although this is not all, and at the level of support, it is capable of enabling programmers to develop applications up to 55% faster, which can speed up product deliveries.
GitHub Copilot X: the new AI designed to help developers
Copilot X is an enhanced version of Copilot from GitHub that was introduced a couple of years ago. This new version comes with a series of improvements, such as an interface that offers a similar experience to the one found when using ChatGPT, so users can be familiar with its use.
This is not all, since Copilot X is now capable of recognizing the code that a developer has written and also the different error messages that may have appeared when executing it. By understanding both sections, the AI is capable of offering much more accurate messages and, therefore, being useful when generating code.
Integration is one of the coolest features of Copilot X on GitHub. In fact, new features are still being tested, such as the ability of this AI to automatically suggest different paragraphs as the programmer develops code. Also to alert in case there is some type of error that they have not noticed.
