GitHub Copilot

Have you guys seen the GitHub announcement today? Introducing GitHub Copilot: your AI pair programmer | The GitHub Blog

It’s described as

a new AI pair programmer that helps you write better code. GitHub Copilot draws context from the code you’re working on, suggesting whole lines or entire functions. It helps you quickly discover alternative ways to solve problems, write tests, and explore new APIs without having to tediously tailor a search for answers on the internet.

In one of the examples on the launch page, they actually show it auto-generating d3 code for a scatterplot. Got me thinking – would be so cool if Observable had some sort of integration with this tech. Not sure what licencing and business limitations there are, but one can dream.
