๐Ÿ“ Cognition emerges from stealth to launch AI software engineer Devin

In the SWE-bench test, Devin was able to correctly resolve 13.86% of GitHub issues without any assistance, performing far better than GPT-4.

๐Ÿ“ Gold-Medalist Coders Build an AI That Can Do Their Job for Them

that looks like more coding ๐Ÿ˜„

Was just about to post this as a standalone

๐Ÿฆ Andrej Karpathy (@karpathy) on X: # automating software engineering

In my mind, automating software engineering will look similar to automating driving. E.g. in self-driving the progression of increasing autonomy and higher abstraction looks something like:

  1. first the human performs all driving actionsโ€ฆ

Especially emphatic with this statement ๐Ÿ‘€

It is very likely that we will have to change up the code editor, substantially.

One of these comes up every week now days. I don't think the self-driving car methaphor works very well. For self-driving the goal is trivially explainable: drive to the location X while following the traffic rules and avoiding accidents. In building anything but the trivial samples these demos show, the goal of a software is nothing like that. I haven't seen any of these AI CodeGen tools even start solving the issue of how do you explain that non-trivial goal to the AI agent in free form English. I believe you'd want an unambiguous structured computable natural language (like the I'm building ๐Ÿ˜„)

So in the future, we're all project managers / senior developers / architects?
