GitHub Launches Copilot X
GitHub's AI-driven software development tool, Copilot X, is integrated with the latest GPT-4 model, expanding the tool's capabilities beyond mere code completion. Copilot X recognizes the code a developer has typed and suggests code to complete it while being deeply embedded in the IDE. It has chat and voice features, can be integrated into pull requests, command lines, and documentation, and GitHub is testing new capabilities where Copilot will automatically suggest sentences and paragraphs as developers create pull requests. Additionally, GitHub is launching Copilot for docs, an experimental tool that uses a chat interface to provide users with AI-generated responses to questions about documentation. Source
AI Innovations Transforming Tech
Microsoft's Loop app facilitates modern co-creation by bringing together teams, content, and tasks across tools and devices. It integrates Microsoft 365 Copilot, which provides AI-powered suggestions and summarization capabilities to improve collaboration. Canva's AI-powered tools, including Magic Write and Magic Design, help users search for design elements, access features, receive design recommendations, and edit images and presentations. CodiumAI has raised $11 million in seed funding for its generative AI solution that helps developers build code logic tests automatically, while Opera has integrated generative AI chatbots powered by ChatGPT and ChatSonic into its Opera and Opera GX desktop browsers, enabling users to generate AI prompts, summarize articles, write social media posts, and ideate through prompts.
