AI in software development

It’s no secret that manual labor has become even more replaced with automation, especially due to COVID-19, work from home, and companies’ zest for efficiency. This fact just explains what we see—in 2022, almost half, or to be exact, 47% of global organizations have adopted AI in the IT sector. 


The experts’ prognosis gives us even more food for thought: the worldwide AI technologies market is anticipated to grow to $1.5trln by 2030. Thus, we believe that creating custom AI solutions is the hottest trend in the software development industry. Based on that belief, we’d like to bring you up to date on this subject and give your business an excellent chance to rock. 


What is AI-based technology?


Let’s dig for answer layer by layer, starting with the AI definition


Artificial intelligence (AI) is the technology that mirrors human thinking and data processing for the sake of speed, accuracy, and manual labor reduction. In other words, that’s the transfer of tasks from humans to machines, or more often, computer systems.


And what is AI software? That’s the application that has the AI and machine learning (ML) algorithms under its hood, such as code, automatic translation of content into different languages, or in-built chatbot customer service. To name a few, Uber and Google are the companies leveraging AI to bridge users with their services.


Okay, that’s clear, but what’s openAI, then? 


OpenAI is a research lab specialized in different AI-based programs and ML algorithms giving computers the power to imitate and optimize particular tasks. The AI technologies list is very extensive, but we’ve got it covered in the next section.


What can you do with OpenAI?


In general, any solution with AI composition in it works in the same mode—the system ingests tons of data, analyzes patterns among it, and uses these correlations for future predictions. However, as the spheres of AI implementation are diverse, let’s look at it closer below.



As you see, there are many ways AI software can be created and improved with the help of openAI. To learn what exactly applies to your case, check out our list.


  • Grammar correction. Corrects sentences into standard English.
  • Summary for a 2nd grader (child/student). Translates/converts difficult text into simpler concepts.
  • Translation from English to other languages. Translates English text into French, Spanish, and Japanese.
  • Text generation. Creates some text by parameters or purpose.
  • Completion of the provided prompt and parameters. If you have some sentences, openAI can generate their continuation.
  • Friends’ chat. Emulates a text message conversation.
  • Advertising from product description. Turns a product description into ad copy. 
  • Code writing help. Does part of the programmer’s job.
  • Programming languages translation. Translates from one programming language to another, using the comments to specify the source and target languages.
  • Product name generation. Creates product names of example words, Influenced by a community prompt.


Overall, with openAI, you can do a lot of things by getting them done through automation instead of manually.


So what’s the role of AI in software development?


The idea of using the achievements of openAI comes from the intention to reduce time on monotonous, repetitive tasks. For example, instead of investing in hiring a design specialist or even a team, you can use openAI to create images from text via the machine’s quick learning of numerous examples.


Case 1. The request was the following: a pastoral meadow with gnarled old apple trees in autumn, red apples hanging in the trees, fluffy clouds, soft afternoon light, wide view, wide angle, naive painting.


See the results!

Image 2: Midjourne


It works so well not only for landscapes but human portraits as well. For case 2, the request was “a man with a cigarette, on the crowded street, in the jacket, real photo.


The outcome of several generations came as follows:



Image 3. A man with a cigarette


Practice shows that adding more prompts can give even more qualitative images.



Image 4. A more detailed version of a smoking man


In this case, the extended request was “a man with a cigarette, on the crowded street, in the jacket, real photo, SSAO, post-processing, post-production, cel shading, tone mapping, CGI, VFX, SFX, incredibly detailed, pencil drawing volumetric light, low angle, wide angle. Unreal engine rendering --ar 3:2 --stylize 600 --s 5000.”


Looks impressive, right? And that’s just one example of how openAI can be used by other AI software companies. In the field of software development, you can delegate a great number of tasks to machines, including:


  • Turning text into programming commands;
  • Items classification;
  • Code explaining & writing;
  • Creating a chatbot on JavaScript;
  • Extracting contact data…

And many more.


AI as a service: What are the key benefits?


An access to artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) platforms is a good alternative to becoming an AI technologies company yourself. Instead of covering high costs, you can benefit from experimenting with AI for multiple business-related tasks by establishing a partnership with the vendor. 

In the end, you gain more:

  • Time on other business tasks;
  • More infallibility in your IT product;
  • Easier management of the delivery of consistent results;
  • AI-based virtual help if needed.


What programming language does OpenAI use?


Not to test your patience, let’s go to the gist at once. No programming language is equal in its characteristics to the openAI technology. However, the ones that are functionally compatible with AI are Python, Ruby, Javascript, C++, Java, Lisp, and Jupyter.


The choice of the openAI programming language depends on the specific business request and project specification. As an alternative to the abovementioned, there’s also a new response to the openAI coding—openAI Codex.
