DeepCode Gets Cash And Opens Free Tier
Wednesday, 14 August 2019

The developers of DeepCode, a code review tool that uses AI techniques, have announced extra funding and a free tier for small teams and educational use. 

DeepCode is an AI -based tool that integrates with code hosting platforms including GitHub, Bitbucket Server and GitLab. It can be used to carry out an AI QA audit, analyzing any branch of your repositories to see the analysis results in your browser. You can also carry out a commit analysis that analyzes all your commits and comments on them to see if a commit introduces any new issues. The final option is a pull request analysis that does the same thing for pull requests.

The system is based on machine learning and aims to understand the intention of your code. The developers have trained the system on millions of repositories noting the changes the developers make to code. They've then trained their own AI engine with those changes to put together a set of around 250,000 rules. These are used to analyze your repositories and suggest potential problems and how to fix them, and more general improvements. The potential problems are more wideranging than you might expect, covering vulnerabilities such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting.

The developers say the platform:

"continuously learns from BigCode the latest standards, solutions, and know-how form the global software development community and provides powerful tools and suggestions to software developers."

The company have now announced a new round of funding worth $4 million that they plan to use to expand the machine learning system. The new funding will be used to increase the range of languages DeepCode supports. At the moment it works on Java, JavaScript, and Python; the intention is to add support for C#, PHP, and C/C++.

The new funding was announced alongside a new pricing structure. Until now, you could use DeepCode for free if you were developing an open source app. This has now been extended so anyone using it as an educational tool gets it for free, as does any enterprise team of up to 30 developers. If your team is larger than this, DeepCode costs $20 per developer per month as a cloud-based option, or $50 per developer when used on-premises.
