Google, which also introduced a new VideoPoet AI tool that can generate videos based on text input, announced today an expansion of Colab to include AI-powered code assistance features for all users, including those on the free plan. 

Colab, with over 10 million monthly active users, offers free access to powerful computing resources like TPUs and GPUs, making it a platform to be at for machine learning and AI development. 

Previously, some AI-powered features like code completion and error checking were only available to paying Colab Pro users. However, Google’s announcement opens these features to everyone, simplifying and potentially accelerating development workflows.

What does the AI do?

  • Suggesting relevant code snippets and functions based on the context, potentially reducing errors and saving time.
  • Identifying potential errors and suggesting fixes, making the development process more efficient.
  • Providing easy access to relevant documentation and API references within the coding environment can improve comprehension and code quality.

How can I use these features?

These features are available within the coding environment. You can use them by simply typing your code as usual, and the AI will provide suggestions and identify potential errors as you go. You can also access relevant documentation and API references by using the appropriate commands within the coding environment.

Overall, if you’ve considered it, this is the right time to get into coding.
