Artificial Intelligence is only helpful if you can apply it in developing software tools that help you become more productive.

Artificial intelligence tools can be helpful in many areas of development, such as code auto-complete, solutions after presenting problems in natural language, image recognition, and pair programming.

1. Why Artificial Intelligence Software Tools Can Improve Your Developer Life

The applications of artificial intelligence have evolved a lot over the years.

Nowadays, you can be more productive doing common tasks that follow certain patterns by using artificial intelligence tools developed by experts who understand those patterns and create artificial intelligence models.

These artificial intelligence models can be used to process the developer inputs and produce useful outputs in less time without having to understand how those models work internally.

This way, developers can produce more software work in less time without much prior training.

2. 4 Examples of Helpful Artificial Intelligence Software Tools

I. Code autocompletion in most IDEs

Read this short article to learn more about artificial intelligence tools that you can use to improve your life as a developer.

Helping developers to type fewer characters to write the names of functions and variables is a feature of many IDE tools that use artificial intelligence to provide suggestions of code that completes what the developer types.

Most modern IDEs tools support this feature, as shown in the example below.

II. Natural language processing to provide a solution for a problem

Whenever a developer does not know the solution to a problem, he can ask another human with more experience. Sometimes, an experienced human is unavailable, probably due to the time of the day when most people the developer knows are asleep.

Those moments are when an artificial intelligence tool that understands natural language can be a good alternative.

One of those tools can be Google Gemini. Here is an image of a question you can ask to Google Gemini to get an automated answer.

III. Recognize Important Objects in Images

Some applications can help users recognize important objects that appear in pictures. For instance, in airports, you can see X-ray machines that capture images of passenger baggage to help find dangerous objects like guns or explosives.

There are artificial intelligence services like, for instance, MediaPipe that can analyze images in real-time and detect approximate boundaries of objects in the pictures and provide suggestions of the types of objects that appear on the Image.

This may help the X-ray machine operators do their job faster, allow the passenger queue to move faster, and avoid passengers losing flights.

IV. Pair Programming to Help Writing Code

Pair programming is a way to work with other developers that can help you to write better code either providing code from scratch, improvement suggestions or code reviews.

Nowadays artificial intelligence tools provide that kind of assistance, so you do not have to wait for a human developer to become available and help you.

One example of that kind of tools is GitHub Copilot XXX. Another example is Google Gemini. Here is a real example Google Gemini being used to help writing and testing code.
