Microsoft’s AI-Powered Designer Tool Available in the Preview
Microsoft released Designer, an AI-powered design tool with a broader range of functionality, in public preview. Microsoft’s text-to-image AI relies on DALL-E 2 and OpenAI to produce beautiful designs from simple word input.
Like Canva, Microsoft Designer can create designs for presentations, posters, invites, digital postcards, and more to post on social media and other platforms.
Some of its capabilities include changing the background, erasing objects, suggesting layouts, filling the space with your ideas, and suggesting color combinations.
Shapes, images, icons, and headings are all prebuilt templates from the web that may be applied to projects by the user. The pre-defined dimensions templates for Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook advertisements are also readily available in Designer, which users can directly insert into their designs.
According to Microsoft, Designer will be free for a limited time before being included in Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions. Still, some of its features will be available for free to non-subscribers. You can try Microsoft Designer for free here.
Replit, a GitHub Competitor, Raises $100M
If you are using GitHub, then you should take a look at Replit’s AI-powered Ghostwriter. Replit’s Ghostwriter is the world’s first developer chat IDE (integrated development environment).
It raises about $97.4 million at a valuation of $1.16 billion. It will be a strong contender to Microsoft GitHub.
Replit plans to use the funds to innovate on its core development, grow its cloud services for developers, and drive AI and LLMs innovation through Ghostwriter.
Its features include a “debugger” that can spot errors in their code and recommend improvements, automation of repetitive coding tasks, and the ability to test the code. It also provides software hosting so that it can monitor how customers utilize it.
This combined procedure results in a comprehensive data platform that can be utilized to train AI models to generate code. The OpenAI Codex AI model powers Ghostwriter Copilot.
According to the most recent figures, Replit has used 20 million coders and written 240 million software programs.
Replit is competing with Microsoft Guithub to develop a “completely autonomous” AI coder that can be treated like a human software engineer. It hopes to have a prototype ready within a year.
