Tabnine explains that its modular model approach means new models can be added as soon as they are available, and customers can train custom AI models on their own GitHub, GitLab, or BitBucket code repositories, further improving accuracy, along with consistency and coherence of their code base and enabling contextual code reuse.
The latest generation of Tabnine’s platform offers customers more freedom to decide where to run Tabnine’s AI assistant to best meet their unique workflows – whether that’s on an individual developer’s machine, in Tabnine’s cloud service, or a self-hosted installation.
The next-generation platform includes a dozen new AI models, each trained from the ground-up on code (vs. models pre-trained on text and retro-fitted to learn code). Each model is optimized for a specific language or domain, enabling Tabnine to contextually complete full lines and snippets of code with unprecedented accuracy.
“Everyday, we get amazing feedback from developers and teams that Tabnine’s AI is now part of their flow, giving them time back to focus on higher-value activities,” said Dror Weiss, CEO & Co-Founder of Tabnine. “With longer and better code completions, our next-generation AI technology is a big step forward for developer productivity, further establishing Tabnine as the leader in AI-powered software development.”
