Quote:
It’s also worth noting that Microsoft’s old foe Amazon recently debuted its own incarnation of Copilot called CodeWhisperer, which rolled out in preview last week. And it’s clear from its launch that Amazon is trying to address some of the copyright concerns that have arisen from Copilot — for example, if CodeWhisperer generates a code suggestion that is similar to an existing snippet found in its training data, it will highlight the license associated with that original function. It’s then up to the developer whether they use that code or not.


Another recent article on co-pilot claimed that this sort of traceability was beyond what current generation AI could do. So did Amazon make a low-key announcement of a breakthrough, or did the other article writer not know what they were talking about?
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
