Programmieren mit GitHub Copilot

Microsoft and OpenAI have a new A.I. tool that will give coding suggestions to software developers – GitHub, GitHub’s parent company Microsoft and OpenAI have teamed up to deliver a tool that comes up with source code for programmers to use as they work. – The system can make recommendations in almost any programming language, although it works best with the popular JavaScript, Python and TypeScript languages. – OpenAI will release the underlying online service for other companies to use this summer. … Nat Friedman, CEO of GitHub, describes GitHub Copilot as a virtual version of what software creators call a pair programmer — that’s when two developers work side by side collaboratively on the same project. The tool looks at existing code and comments in the current file and the location of the cursor, and it offers up one or more lines to add. As programmers accept or reject suggestions, the model learns and becomes more sophisticated over time. … The model at the core of GitHub Copilot, called Codex, is a descendent of GPT-3, a powerful model that OpenAI trained on large volumes of text, Brockman said. Engineers fed the model ‚many, many terabytes of public source code out there,‘ Friedman said.“


Ohne Werbung: Neeva vs Google

„Inside Neeva, the ad-free, privacy-first search engine from ex-GooglersSridhar Ramaswamy and Vivek Raghunathan helped turn Google into an ad giant. Now they’re starting over with a service whose only customers are its users. … But Neeva is indeed a new search engine, officially launching today, that carries a subscription fee. Though it’s extremely similar to Google in many respects – with a few twists of its own – it dumps the web giant’s venerable ad-based business model in the interest of avoiding distractions, privacy quandaries, and other compromises. It’s free for three months – long enough for users to grow accustomed to it without obligation – and $4.95 a month thereafter. Apps for iPhones and iPads, and browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and Brave, are part of the deal.“


Worldcoin: Coins gegen Irisscan

A16z, Coinbase-Backed Startup Looks to Distribute Crypto to Everyone on Earth by Scanning Their Eyeballs: Report – Worldcoin has designed an orb-shaped unit to produce a unique identifier from an iris scan. – Worldcoin, a startup founded by former Y Combinator head Sam Altman, wants to distribute crypto to everyone on the planet by scanning their eyeballs. – Altman, former president of startup accelerator Y Combinator, devised the concept in 2019 around experimentation on universal basic income and how money could be distributed to people in a way that circumvents the role of government. … Aspirations of financial inclusion are nothing new in crypto, though the concept of scanning eyeballs may be seen as a controversial way of achieving it.“


Facebook Bulletin vs Substack

Facebook announces Bulletin, its Substack newsletter competitor – Facebook is getting into the subscription newsletter game. It’s launching a new service today, called Bulletin, that allows writers to publish free and paid newsletters that can be posted to the web, sent to subscribers’ inboxes, and shared across Facebook. Perhaps the biggest perk for now: Facebook says it won’t take a fee from writers ‚at launch,‘ and writers retain full ownership of their work and subscriber list.“
