  • A lot of things are happening in the world of AI now.
  • Google, the world’s leading search engine, is ready to take on Microsoft’s Copilot on GitHub.
  • Teaming up with Replit, the two companies are developing a generative AI tool for software devs. 

A lot of exciting things are happening in the AI world — you’ve probably seen that viral Twitter post that says over 1,000 AI products were introduced in a span of a month or two, and while it seems like a huge number, it wouldn’t be surprising if it’s true. One of them is Google and its partnership with Replit. 

Why does it matter, you may think?

Well, Google and Replit team up to create an advance generative AI for software devs. In short, you’ll be able to debug any error on your codes with just one simple click using this generative AI.

Under the new partnership, Replit developers will get access to Google Cloud infrastructure, services, and foundation models via Ghostwriter, Replit’s software development AI, while Google Cloud and Workspace developers will get access to Replit’s collaborative code editing platform.

How will Google & Replit compete with Microsoft Copilot?

By integrating Google’s AI language model, Replit, now at 20 million developers strong, aims to enhance the efficiency of coders, which could lead to a significant transformation in their productivity. This advancement has the potential to enable developers to complete their work at a much faster pace than before.

Similarly, Microsoft’s Copilot tool on GitHub also works on the same premise. 

As a matter of fact, Redmond officials have been closely working on the tool, but on its Office 365 productivity apps such as Word, Excel, and Outlook. In the near future, users will be able to create drafts, design visually-engaging presentations, and sum up a long email thread with just simple word prompts. 

We’ve progressed at such a worrying pace in this AI war, so much so that Elon Musk and others are calling for research to be postponed.

What do you think about this partnership between Google and Replit? Let us know in the comments!
