ML News - GitHub Copilot - Copyright, GPL, Patents & more | Brickit LEGO app | Distill goes on break (Video)

GitHub and OpenAI release Copilot, an AI-powered code autocomplete system that can generate entire functions, classes, and modules from mere definitions and docstrings. Copilot was trained on all public GitHub repositories, and this has a lot of people upset about questions on copyright, code licenses, social obligations, and how much you can profit from other people’s work. I give my opinions on the issue in relation to copyright law, the GPL license, and terms of service. Further, we discuss the Brickit app to organize your LEGOs, Distill going on a break, and much more.
