Today we’re joined by Vasi Philomin, vice president of AI services at AWS, joins us for our first in-person interview since 2019! In our conversation with Vasi, we discussed the recently released Amazon Code Whisperer, a developer-focused coding companion. We begin by exploring Vasi’s role and the various products under the banner of cognitive and non-cognitive services, and how those came together where Code Whisperer fits into the equation and some of the differences between Code Whisperer and some of the other recently released coding companions like GitHub Copilot. We also discuss the training corpus for the model, and how they’ve dealt with the potential issues of bias that arise when training LLMs with crawled web data, and Vasi’s thoughts on what the path of innovation looks like for Code Whisperer.
At the end of our conversation, Vasi was gracious enough to share a quick live demo of Code Whisperer, so you can catch that here.
You know AWS as a cloud computing technology leader, but did you realize the company offers a broad array of services and infrastructure at all three layers of the machine learning technology stack? AWS has been focused on making ML accessible to customers of all sizes and across industries, and over 100,000 of them trust AWS for machine learning and artificial intelligence services. AWS is constantly innovating across all areas of ML including infrastructure, tools on Amazon SageMaker, and AI services, such as Amazon CodeWhisperer, an AI-powered code companion that improves developer productivity by generating code recommendations based on the code and comments in an IDE. AWS also created purpose-built ML accelerators for the training (AWS Trainium) and inference (AWS Inferentia) of large language and vision models on AWS.
