GitHub launches ‘Copilot Enterprise’, an AI coding assistant for businesses

GitHub, a leading platform for open source software development, introduced today a new product aimed at helping large enterprises harness the power of artificial intelligence in their coding projects. The product, called GitHub Copilot Enterprise, is an AI assistant that can generate code suggestions, answer queries, and summarize changes based on the organization’s own codebase and standards. Experts say the new offering signals a seismic shift in how software engineering teams will operate in the near future, essentially putting an AI programmer at every developer’s side.  “We’re moving away from a digital transformation to an AI transformation for a lot of these enterprise companies,” said Mario Rodriguez, GitHub’s VP of Product, in an interview with VentureBeat. “It might even become a productivity polarity between those who use it and those who don’t.” Integrates GitHub AI throughout software lifecycle Rodriguez explained that Copilot Enterprise goes far beyond GitHub’s free Copilot tool by integrating throughout the software development lifecycle.

Match Group and OpenAI sign enterprise deal, ChatGPT writes the press release

Match Group and OpenAI have signed a deal that will see the dating app giant receive over 1,000 ChatGPT enterprise licenses for its employees, as reported by TechCrunch. The company behind apps such as Tinder, Match, OKCupid, Hinge, and PlentyOfFish explained its plans to leverage AI across a variety of its apps in its Q4 earnings report, to “enable our business to evolve their existing products and build disruptive new products and user experiences that meet the changing needs and expectations of their target audiences and drive user growth.” This agreement appears to be the first step towards implementing those plans as the company moves to get its workforce to use and interact with the technology it hopes will improve user experience in 2024.

Google brings Gemini AI models to enterprise tools

Google brings Gemini AI models to enterprise tools

Google said on Wednesday that some of its artificial intelligence tools that it offers to businesses will be powered by the company’s “Gemini” AI models and available at a lower-priced plan as it looks to compete with Microsoft-backed OpenAI. The Alphabet unit in August last year introduced “Duet AI in Workspace”, a set of AI assistants that could write in Google Docs, draft emails in Gmail and generate custom visuals in Google Slides, among other capabilities, at a monthly price of $30 per user for companies. “Duet AI in Workspace” is being rebranded to “Gemini for Google Workspace,” and will now be available for $20 and $30 per user per month, based on available features, on top of a subscription to Google Workspace. OpenAI sells a suite that includes AI model GPT-4 and image generation tool DALL·E to individuals for a monthly price of $20 per user, and to companies starting at a monthly price of $25 per user. Companies are pushing to roll out services based on generative AI, widely seen as a breakthrough …

Apple eyes business as a prime market for the Apple Vision Pro

Apple eyes business as a prime market for the Apple Vision Pro

For years, we’ve been hearing about virtual and augmented reality use cases in business around manufacturing, field service and product design, but for the most part, the notion has failed to take hold in a big way. The question now is whether the Apple Vision Pro (AVP), released last week with much ballyhoo, will move the needle at all when it comes to shifting these kinds of devices into the enterprise mainstream. While most people use terms like “augmented reality,” “virtual reality” or even “metaverse” (thanks, Meta), Apple prefers to define the genre in its own terms, referring to the Apple Vision Pro as spatial computing or mixed reality. In its typical fashion, Apple is trying to define a new category. Whatever you call it, the company certainly sees the AVP as a business device alongside its more obvious consumer use cases around gaming, media consumption and good old-fashioned web surfing. Certainly it has the potential to transform the online shopping experience. On Apple’s quarterly earnings call with analysts earlier this month, CEO Tim Cook …

ChatGPT Enterprise vs. ChatGPT Team: Which is the best for your business?

Sabrina Ortiz/ZDNET The standard version of ChatGPT has proven to be a very capable tool with the ability to do tasks such as coding, writing, and explaining complex topics.  Naturally, companies wanted to leverage the technology for their own use cases to optimize their business operations.

‘Very dangerous and confusing’: one inmate’s view on joint enterprise law | Joint enterprise

‘Very dangerous and confusing’: one inmate’s view on joint enterprise law | Joint enterprise

Alex Henry was out shopping in west London when he ran to help friends who had got into a fight with four strangers. In the 47-second scuffle that ensued, Henry threw a punch and threw a mobile phone at the men and ran off. But one of Henry’s friends had a knife concealed in a carrier bag, which he used to kill one man and wound another. Cameron Ferguson confessed to the stabbing but more than a decade later Henry is one of three men in prison for the 2013 murder of Taqui Khezihi. Like many others serving joint enterprise sentences, Henry is hoping for reform to the law, under which young people in particular can be imprisoned for crimes their associates commit. A bill being heard in parliament on Friday is intended to ensure that criminal liability applies only to people who make a “significant contribution” to an offence. Writing from his cell in HMP Dovegate, Henry said: “Politicians need to know that it does not make sense to have three to four men …

Generative AI’s enterprise gamble: IT leaders bet big on tech despite security woes

Generative AI’s enterprise gamble: IT leaders bet big on tech despite security woes

Enterprise IT teams are moving swiftly to adopt generative artificial intelligence systems like ChatGPT, according to a new report from Glean and ISG. The report found that IT leaders see generative AI as transformational and are willing to increase budgets and take on risks to implement the technology across their organizations.  The report surveyed 224 IT executives at large U.S. and European companies. It found that budgets for generative AI projects are expected to nearly triple between 2023 and 2025, rising from an average of 1.5% of IT budgets today to 4.3% in two years. Larger companies plan to allocate even more, with 26% of firms over $5 billion in revenue budgeting more than 10% toward generative AI by 2025. “Today’s IT leaders have lived through multiple hype cycles heralding new technologies as transformative, and this study demonstrates that these leaders see something different in generative AI,” CEO of Glean, Arvind Jain, said in a statement. “Companies are moving with unprecedented speed to invest in and deploy generative AI.” Rapid adoption despite potential risks The …

HP Enterprise Discloses Hack by Suspected State-Backed Russian Hackers

HP Enterprise Discloses Hack by Suspected State-Backed Russian Hackers

BOSTON (AP) — Hewlett Packard Enterprise disclosed Wednesday that suspected state-backed Russian hackers broke into its cloud-based email system and stole data from cybersecurity and other employees. The provider of information technology products and services said in a Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory filing that it was informed of the intrusion on Jan. 12. It said it believed the hackers were from Cozy Bear, a unit of Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service. Microsoft reported last week that it also discovered an intrusion of its corporate network on Jan. 12. The Redmond, Washington, tech giant said the breach began in late November and also blamed Cozy Bear. It said the Russian hackers accessed accounts of senior Microsoft executives as well as cybersecurity and legal employees. Cozy Bear was behind the SolarWinds breach and focuses stealth intelligence-gathering on Western governments, IT service providers and think tanks in the U.S. and Europe. “Based on our investigation, we now believe that the threat actor accessed and exfiltrated data beginning in May 2023 from a small percentage of HPE mailboxes …
