Reporter: Pauline Caballero 1. Top 10 Trends in Software Development Software development is constantly changing, with new trends and technologies emerging every year. Here are some of the top 10 trends that are shaping the software development industry in 2020: • Artificial Intelligence: Artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly important in the software development process. AI-driven software can help automate processes, detect patterns, and provide insights into data. • Microservices Architecture: Microservices architecture is a way of developing software that focuses on breaking down applications into small, independent services. This allows for easier scalability and quicker development times. • Cloud Computing: Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular in software development, as it allows applications to be hosted in remote servers and accessed from anywhere. • Containers: Containers are a way of packaging applications so that they can run in any environment without needing to be re-configured. This makes deployment easier and faster. • Serverless Computing: Serverless computing is a way of running applications without the need for a dedicated server. This can help reduce costs and increase scalability. • DevOps: DevOps is an approach to software
Pretrained Large Language Models (LLMs) are quickly taking over as the main paradigm for a wide range of linguistic activities, including creating and completing computer code. LLMs have shown improved performance with increasing model size on many real-world tasks, including programming tasks. More recently, however, researchers have discovered several tasks that show inverse scaling, where output quality declines rather than improves with increasing model size. Inverse-scaling tasks typically include social biases, where bigger models (perhaps correctly) pick up undesired biases from biassed training sets or extremely uncommon but still recognizable examples of spoken language. These extreme tasks do not necessarily
Introduction As a programmer, you’re always on the lookout for tools that can enhance your productivity and make your code more efficient. In the world of R programming, the do.call() function is one such gem. This often-overlooked function is a...
AI and ML have come a long way in the past decade, transforming how we develop software and applications. One of the most impressive examples is OpenAI’s Codex, a system that can generate code from natural language descriptions. Codex powers Copilot, a tool that helps developers write better code faster and easier. In this blogpost … Continue reading Copilot for Power BI, What Does it Mean for Power BI Development?
