(t/f Must-Read) Devin: World’s First AI That Writes Codes from Prompts


Devin: World’s First AI Software Engineer launched by Cognition

AI-powered tools assist software engineers to automate repetitive tasks, optimize code quality, and increase productivity. Integrating artificial intelligence into software engineering processes empowers developers to build better software at a faster pace, driving innovation and efficiency in the software development lifecycle. The launch of “AI software engineer” would be a major leap in the field of IT.

US-based Tech start-up, Cognition has introduced the world’s first AI software engineer in the world, Devin. Devin’s functionality involves writing, debugging, and deploying code to create functioning websites and videos with just a single prompt.

This AI software engineer can save time and effort of the people by identifying and rectifying the bugs required for troubleshooting. It also offers coding suggestions auto-completes some tasks and is capable of creating an entire software project independently without any prompt. Equipped with its command line, browser, and code editor it enables Devin to plan and execute complicated engineering projects, learning from its experiences and rectifying its mistakes autonomously.

In a video provided by Cognition, Devin showcased its functions to swiftly resolve errors identifying the problematic code segments.

In the video, Devin outperformed compared to other solutions when tested for standard software engineering problems. Devin performed exceptionally well as compared to its predecessor AI models with a margin of 14 percent in resolving issues while the previous AI models could resolve only around 2 percent of issues.

Devin can be considered the most advanced AI software engineer that can perform complex software engineering tasks based on the SWE-bench coding benchmark.

The AI software engineer also performed well in practical engineering interviews that were conducted by top artificial intelligence companies. These interviews included tasks and challenges in the field of AI and software engineering.

Further, Devin is designed to work hand-in-hand with human programmers providing real-time progress reports, accepting feedback and engaging in collaborative decision-making. It is capable of learning new things by just reading online articles and enhancing large language models.

Moreover, Devin will not just be limited to lab tests but it has already been used in the Upwork platform, where it performed real-world coding tasks that involved debugging computer vision models to compiling detailed reports.
