In the current epoch of rapid technological progression, the realm of software development is undergoing a paradigm shift with the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI) software engineers. Prominent among these pioneering entities is Devin, an exemplar of AI-driven engineering that promises to revolutionize the software creation process.
 
AI startup “Cognition” introduced Devin, an AI software engineer. According to Bloomberg, Devin is a development assistant similar to Copilot, constructed by GitHub, Microsoft, and OpenAI, representing a “higher-order” category of development aids. Not only can Devin offer coding suggestions and automate certain tasks, but it can also independently undertake and complete entire software projects.
 
Cognition officially states that Devin has the ability to learn and utilize technologies it is not initially familiar with, contribute to mature code repositories, train and fine-tune its own AI models, and has even successfully secured real jobs on the freelance platform Upwork.
