On Coding And Artificial Intelligence

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is big at the moment, and to no surprise. AI can help humanity in many different areas, such as diagnosing an illness at an early stage, or assisting a driver with direction, or driving you to a desired destination.

While it is debatable whether or not we should trust AI to take over crucial areas of our lives (have you seen “Terminator?"), one area I found Artificial Intelligence to be particularly useful in is programming. Using the right tools, you can save yourself a lot of time while coding with AI enabled.

You have two options if you want AI to help you write code.

  1. Kite. It is a well known tool available for many IDEs and editors. It can be downloaded from here. The only problem is, Kite seems to be unavailable at the moment of writing.

  2. TabNine. This is what I’ve been using personally in my Visual Studio Code, and I like TabNine very much. TabNine can be installed in VSCode from here.

To quote the developers of TabNine: “Tabnine is an AI-powered code completion extension trusted by millions of developers around the world. Whether you’re just getting started as a developer or if you’ve been doing it for decades, Tabnine will help you code twice as fast with half the keystrokes – all in your favorite IDE."

It’s very easy to set up and is even easier to use. I think you should give TabNine Cloud Assistant a try.

Hope this article will help you get even more productive while writing code. Thanks for your time, and have a great day!
