What OpenAI and GitHub’s ‘AI pair programmer’ means for the software industry
“OpenAI has once again made the headlines, this time with Copilot, an AI-powered programming tool jointly built with GitHub. Built on top of GPT-3, OpenAI’s famous language model, Copilot is an autocomplete tool that provides relevant (and sometimes lengthy) suggestions as you write code.
There’s still no information on how much the official Copilot will cost. But hourly wages for programming talent start at around $30 and can reach as high as $150. Even saving a few hours of programming time or giving a small boost to development speed would probably be enough to cover the costs of Copilot.”
