A tool to multiply programmers?

AI research company OpenAI is releasing a new machine learning tool that translates the English language into code. The software is called Codex and is designed to speed up the work of professional programmers and help amateurs get started coding. You can sign up to be a beta tester here!

OpenAI shows how the software can be used to build simple websites and rudimentary games using natural language and translate between different programming languages and tackle data science queries. Users type English commands into the software, like “create a webpage with a menu on the side and title at the top,” and Codex translates this into code. It’s in its infancy stages but looking pretty awesome! Check it out.

They are now inviting businesses and developers to build on top of OpenAI Codex through their API.
