GitHub has unveiled Copilot X, an enhanced version of its AI-powered programming support tool, Developer reports.
Copilot has the ability to learn the programming style of individual developers. By analyzing the code written by a developer over time, the tool can learn their coding patterns and suggest code snippets that match their style.
“With artificial intelligence available at every step, we can fundamentally redefine developer productivity. We’re reducing templates and manual tasks and making complex work easier throughout the developer lifecycle,”
explains Thomas Domke, CEO of GitHub.
Some developers worry about the impact of AI-assisted programming on the job market. Questions have also been raised about Copilot’s potential to copy code verbatim and the potential copyright implications.
