…a finite tool that processes low coding or zero codings.
Microsoft has reportedly developed GPT-3 AI-powered tool that completes coding in a click. Another new product that starred Microsoft Build developer conference. Although, the software company started the Autocomplete coding race during the pandemic — at the time, they licensed the AI tech.
The Washington-based tech giant, OpenAI, invented this tech — GPT-3 AI language is appropriately functional on PowerApp software that programs ordinary language into fully baked code. After Microsoft licensed the OpenAI AI language, the company then announced its availability for commercial use.
This tool is reportedly finite, whereby it can only be processed with Microsoft’s Power Fx — with close observation, this formula is derived from Microsoft’s Excel format — a simple programming language mostly used for database queries.
The software company intends to research on it potential aiming to discover the exact tool that bolsters auto-coding — machine learning algorithms will also be utilized to hasten the development of GPT-3.
CVP of Microsoft’s Low Code Application Platform, Charles Lamanna said: “There’s a massive demand for digital solutions but not enough coders out there. There’s a million-developer shortfall in the US alone. So instead of making the world learn how to code, why don’t we make development environments speak the language of a normal human?”
Microsoft had consented to develop automated coding overtime and with its PowerApp software, they had chances of applying zero code or a low amount of coding. The program functions via a web platform suitable for companies with low resources to contract professional programmers.
“This is when it goes from no code to low code, You go from drag and drop, click click click, to writing formulas. And that quickly becomes complex,” in line with Lamanna, machine learning will interfere to assist GPT-3 AI tech.
The simplicity of this tool eases the stress of manually updating Power FX database queries, whereby Microsoft’s new AI tech writes out a complex text to be comprehensive. “Like any filter, it’s not perfect, The human does choose to inject the expression. We never inject the expression automatically.”
Lamanna made it worth noting that users are expected to confirm any formula written by the AI, and noting that any default or error ignored by the user is at his/her expense. Still, the software company is yet to fully detail the capability of this new AI tech.
Even Lamanna cannot decide when this technology will be available for commercial use while Microsoft is dependant on PowerApp and machine learning to bolster the efficiency of autocomplete coding. This is another futuristic product unveiled in Microsoft’s Build developer event.
