In The News: Software Engineers Could Soon Outsource Part of Their Jobs To Alexa

I discovered an article that talks about Devy, an Amazon Alexa hack that can automate tedious tasks for software engineers while they focus on the more important aspects of their job.

Nick Bradley, a computer science graduate at the University of British Columbia, and two computer science professors, Reid Holmes and Thomas Fritz, created Devy, a “Conversational Developer Assistant.” Devy is an Alexa hack that was made for software engineers to use conversational language to dictate tasks. Devy can listen to an engineer’s voice commands and translate it to a series of smaller actions minimizing monotonous coding in their daily routine.

Devy is being tested at several software companies and is receiving high praise from its engineers. Researchers say that the future of this new technology can make a positive impact in the fields of medicine and law!
