I discovered an article that talks about Devy, an Amazon Alexa hack that can automate tedious tasks for software engineers. This allows them to 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. While, this in turn minimizes monotonous coding in their daily routine.
Devy is in testing 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 medicine and law! For example, doctors may be able to tell Devy a list of symptoms and it can pull up scientific research that match for quicker diagnoses. Also, lawyers can find legal document that may help their case with Devy.
Furthermore, if you want to read more about this ground-breaking development, check out the article here! I know we’re excited to share it with the rest of our team!
