Google Has a Secret Project That Is Using AI to Write and Fix Code

This could help reduce the demand for human engineers in future. Google is currently working on a secretive project that utilizes machine learning to teach code how to write, fix and update itself. Google is expanding its efforts into generative AI, or algorithms that create images, videos and code. This project is part a larger push by Google. This could have major implications for both the future of the company and coders. 

According to sources familiar with the matter, this project, which started life in Alphabet’s X research division and was codenamed Pitchfork at first, moved into Google Labs this summer. It signaled that it was more important to leaders by moving into Google. Google Labs is interested in long-term projects, including those in virtual and/or augmented reality. Pitchfork now belongs to a new Labs group called the AI Developer Assistance team. Olivia Hatalsky is a long-term X employee and worked on Google Glass as well as other moonshot projects. Hatalsky, the man who ran Pitchfork on X, made the move to Labs after it migrated this summer. According to Insider, Pitchfork was created to “teach code to write and to rewrite itself.”

AI-Powered Code Completion & Its Use Cases

These platforms or applications use AI technology to compile the code that you create to build tools or software. AI code completion tools are great for developers and coders. There will be fewer keystrokes, which will make it easier to write code faster.

These applications will not only help you code better, but they also reduce common errors like typos using Artificial Intelligence.

Every developer knows that writing the same code in multiple places can be tedious. AI code completion tools reduce repetitive coding by suggesting next code elements you might type.

According to reports, Pitchfork is a code generator project codenamed by Alphabet’s X research department. The project was taken up this summer by engineers from Google Labs, led by Olivia Hatalsky. Hatalsky has been an employee in the X Division for many decades and has been involved with the development of Google Glass, among other devices.

Teach Code to Write and Rewrite Itself

Sources say that the Pitchfork Project is being used to do this “Teach Code to Write and Rewrite Itself”. The algorithm will learn programming styles and create code based on lessons learned. The original task of the Pitchfork project consisted in creating a tool to update the Python programming language codebase without the involvement of live programmers.

The project’s objectives changed over time to create a system that can be used for all purposes and reduce the number of people required to update or write code. It also maintained its quality. The current stage of development for the Google code generator is not known.

Alphabet X was the original developer of the Pitchfork code generator. Olivia Hatalsky, an engineer from Google Labs, joined the project this summer. Hatalsky has been a long-standing employee of the X Division and developed Google Glass, among other devices.

The algorithm created is expected to be able learn programming styles and write code independently based on the information. The initial task was to create a tool that would update the Python programming language’s code base without the involvement of live programmers. The project’s goals changed over time to create a system that can be used by everyone, and reduce the amount of code needed to be written or updated. It also maintained its quality. The current stage of development for the Google code generator is unknown.
