Google unveiled Codey as a “series of code models based on PaLM 2” at I/O 2023, and it will soon be available via Google Colab. Google Colab enables Python writing and execution in a browser, with a focus on machine learning, education, and data analysis.
Codey has been “specifically developed for Python and for Colab-specific purposes” in Colab. To increase performance on coding jobs, Codey is often “fine-tuned on a large dataset of high quality, permissively licensed code from external sources.” Users may “create” code, including whole functions, by typing natural language text prompts into a menu that is opened by clicking a button on the notebook toolbar. Autocomplete recommendations will also be available to paid Colab members.
In order to concentrate on the more remarkable features of programming and data science, Google wishes to reduce the amount of repetitive code written. In the meanwhile, you may ask a “Colab AI” chatbot questions such as “How do I import data from Google Sheets?” from the left sidebar. either that or “How do I filter a Pandas DataFrame?” Studio Bot in Android Studio is comparable to this.
The launch of Codey in Colab will begin with paying US members “in the coming months.” Google intends to extend it to additional nations as well as the free tier. Codey is now available on Google Cloud as a preview.
