Amazon launches CodeWhisperer, a GitHub Copilot-like AI pair programming tool

Quick Summary

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.

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.

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.
