Amazon Launches CodeWhisperer, AI Pair Programming Tool similar to GitHub's Copilot

At its re:Mars conference, Amazon today announced the launch of CodeWhisperer, an AI pair programming tool similar to GitHub’s Copilot that can autocomplete entire functions based on only a comment or a few keystrokes. The company trained the system, which currently supports Java, JavaScript and Python, on billions of lines of publicly available open-source code and its own codebase, as well as publicly available documentation and code on public forums. If anything, though, having more choice in this space is great (and somebody is surely going to hack up a project that will automatically provide suggestions from multiple pair programming AIs). He noted that with CodeGuru, its AI code reviewer and performance profiler, and DevOps Guru, its tool for finding operation issues, the company laid the groundwork for today’s launch quite a few years ago. For one, while most of the code that the system generates is novel, every time it generates code that is close to an existing snippet in its training data, it will note that and highlight the license of that original function. Ahead of today’s announcement, Vasi Philomin, Amazon’s VP in charge of its AI services, stressed that the company didn’t simply create this in order to offer a copy of Copilot. It’s now available in preview as part of the AWS IDE Toolkit, which means developers can immediately use it right inside their preferred IDEs, including Visual Studio Code, IntelliJ IDEA, PyCharm, WebStorm and Amazon’s own AWS Cloud 9. Another factor Philomin stressed is security. (TechCrunch). Continue reading.
