Description
"Built by OpenAI, the private research lab, and GitHub, the Microsoft-­owned website where programmers share code, the tool is essentially autocomplete for software development. Much as Gmail tries to finish a sentence as you write it, Copilot offers to complete a chunk of your program. The tool was released last summer to a select group of coders."
