Leveraging machine learning to boost productivity of software engineers at MetaAI has become a ubiquitous element of daily life, playing a role in everything from self-driving cars to automated chatbots and enjoying phenomenal growth. The sector is expected to expand 47% between 2021 and 2022. Meta (formerly Facebook) is now using AI as an integral part of its app development process. A look at how the social media giant is leveraging this technology demonstrates its potential in the development sphere. Meta’s engineers accomplish this feat using three productivity tools: code search using natural language, code recommendation, and automatic bug fixing.
