Let’s complete a data science project with Github Copilot!

Github Copilot is the recent hype in the programming world, and many articles and youtube videos show the amazing capability of Copilot. I obtained access to Github Copilot Technical Preview recently and I’m curious about how Copilot can help data scientists in data science projects.

What is GitHub Copilot?

GitHub Copilot is an AI pair programmer that helps you write code faster and with less work. GitHub Copilot draws context from comments and code and suggests individual lines and whole functions instantly. [3]

Copilot has been trained on huge amounts of coding data publicly available, from GitHub repositories and other sites [2]. So basically it is a better programmer than you and me.

How to use Copilot?

Currently, Copilot technical preview is available as VS code extension and is only limited to a small group of testers for previewing the extension. You can try to sign up here.
