Open-source web browser Mozilla has partnered with Ubisoft, a developing company, to develop Artificial Intelligence-powered code assistant, Clever-Commit. Developed by Ubisoft La Forge, Ubisoft utilizes Clever-Commit internally, and now with this partnership, Firefox will try to detect errors in their code. The code assistant comprises data from the bug tracking system and the code-base. Nearly 8,000 edits are made in every Firefox release by several developers. By utilizing Ubisoft’s assistant to save bugs on them will have a large effect in Firefox development.
Further, Ledru said that they expect to save hundreds of hours of bug riskiness analysis and detection. In due course, the addition of Clever-Commit into the full Firefox developer workflow could support to seize up to 3 to 4 out of 5 bugs before they are introduced into the code. Last year, Clever-Commit was originally demonstrated by Ubisoft as Commit Assistant.
