  • AI-assisted programming: A revolution in the way we code
  • In this talk we explore how Large Language Models (LLMs) are trained, how they work and the results they achieve on various benchmarks We'll then do 3 live demos leveraging specific LLMs: 1) GitHub Copilot X: an advanced AI-pair programmer tool from Microsoft. GitHub Copilot X has been trained on terabytes of source code freely available on GitHub and is capable of many coding tasks: write code from text description, explain code, suggest improvements, fix bugs, write unit tests, do code reviews, etc. We'll demo the various capabilities. 2) Azure OpenAI API: is an API on top of OpenAI models. With carefully crafted prompts we can use GPT3.5 Turbo to solve fairly arbitrary Natural Language Processing tasks, effectively using LLMs as a generic Machine Learning model. 3) GPT-4 Data Analyst: this is a GPT-4 model trained to be an assistant data scientist. It can be fed an arbitrary file and will extract insights from the raw data in a matter of minutes by querying the data in natural language.

  • José Santos holds a Licenciatura em Engenharia Informática (2004), a Masters degree in Artificial Intelligence (2006) both from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa and a PhD in Computer Science (Logic-based Machine Learning algorithms) from Imperial College, London (2010). José Santos has been a Software Engineer at Microsoft in the Bing division since 2011, and a Principal Software Engineer since 2020. José is a co-inventor of two Microsoft patents and has worked on multiple Bing teams over the past 12 years: query alterations, autosuggest, shopping relevance, price insights and, more recently, is working on the integration of generative pre-trained (GPT) language models in various product features.
