GitHub, a division of Microsoft Corporation, has made its artificial intelligence code generation service, Copilot for Business, generally available. The service is built upon a Copilot tool that GitHub first showed off in 2021.
Along with Copilot for Business’s general availability, GitHub has also added a number of new features. The Microsoft unit claims that the features will make it easier for developers to find software vulnerabilities and write code more quickly. Software code is produced by Copilot for Business using the Codex AI model.
According to GitHub, programmers can describe a software task in a text prompt and Codex will automatically create the code required to complete the task.
