Swimm Launches World’s Most Advanced Contextualized Coding Assistant for Accurate and Instant Code Knowledge

Swimm, a leading GenAI-powered coding assistant for contextualized code understanding, announced the launch of /ask Swimm, the most comprehensive solution available for enterprise software development teams that combines an AI-powered chat and human input to provide personalized and accurate code knowledge instantly. 

Software developers are continuously trying to ship code faster yet often struggle to find accurate answers to their questions due to a lack of good code documentation hygiene and limited contextualized code understanding which can render answers that are too generic and unhelpful. In a recent survey conducted by Swimm, 73% of developers surveyed said that code documentation is important to their organization’s productivity; however, 37% said they spend 5 or more hours a week looking for information to understand code or to answer questions about it. This highlights the current gap that exists between the need for effective code understanding and documentation, which is often required when debugging issues with code or when onboarding new developers, and the tools that are currently available.

/ask Swimm is an AI-powered coding assistant providing developers with a multilayered contextual understanding of code, enabling them to significantly boost productivity across the entire development lifecycle. The chat is dynamic and personalized to an organization’s specific codebase, documentation, user interactions and other 3rd party tools. A fully contextualized conversational chat within the IDE instantly enables developers to answer any questions about documentation, code, files, repos, or even entire software ecosystems. To gain context, /ask Swimm incorporates factors that are not evident in the code itself, such as business decisions, product design considerations, limitations that were the basis for roads not taken, etc. /ask Swimm automatically captures and updates code-related knowledge in the process, while improving over time with continuous feedback and user-generated documents. 

“Some of the biggest names in tech, including Microsoft (Copilot), Google (Duet AI), Amazon (CodeWhisperer), are building code assistance tools. They’re competing on the merits of their analysis capabilities and the LLMs they’re using, but no matter how good they are, a tool doesn’t know what it doesn’t know because it’s lacking the relevant context,” said Oren Toledano, CEO and Co-founder at Swimm. “To provide the most complete picture to engineers, we’ve developed /ask Swimm which is the logical next step in the evolution of code understanding. Context is invaluable especially when refactoring legacy code or trying to understand complex flows and processes in a codebase. By keeping documentation and context up to date with existing code, processing it and feeding it in time to the LLMs, Swimm has solved one of the biggest challenges developers face today.”

Gen-AI tools deliver unprecedented, near-perfect data accuracy 

Stratio BD, a leading generative AI and data specialist, announced that generative AI tools are 99% accurate when used with Stratio Business Semantic Data Layer and can be trusted by enterprises to inform enterprise decision making, following a landmark test. As a result, employees with any level of technical expertise can use generative AI tools to run complex data queries and immediately receive accurate answers, provided Stratio’s Business Semantic Data Layer is also applied. 

The results, produced for the first time by linking ChatGPT analysis of independent datasets with Stratio BD’s Business Semantic Data Layer, confirm that generative tools can now deliver reliable results from data analysis and interrogation. This means that businesses can rely on gen AI analysis to produce accurate answers, allowing employees with any level of technical expertise to ask data-related questions in their natural language, and receive answers with a high level of accuracy, immediately.

The test conditions replicate a benchmark test previously conducted by two months ago, which resulted in LLMs delivering three times greater efficiencies when connected to a knowledge graph. This test was subsequently validated in December 2023 by dbt labs, which saw the accuracy rate hit 69%. In this latest replication of the test, Stratio BD found that ChatGPT 4 was able to accurately answer data queries ran on large amounts of data, up to 99% of the time.

The significant increase in accuracy delivery was the direct result of using Stratio BD’s Business Semantic Data Layer, which connects large data sets with business meaning via semantic ontologies and a knowledge graph, so that they can be easily accessed and interpreted by generative AI tools and employees alike. The benchmark test involved asking ChatGPT-4 to answer a set of insurance related business questions, such as ‘How many claims do we have?’ and ‘What is the average time to settle a claim?’ , using information from a standardised dataset. 

ChatGPT was first asked to answer these questions without the support of Stratio BD’s Business Semantic Data Layer and achieved an accuracy rate of 17%. The LLM was then asked the same questions with the support of a 3rd party knowledge graph and reached an accuracy rate of 69%. However, when using Stratio’s solution this figure increased dramatically to up to 99%. 

Román Martín, Chief Technology Officer at Stratio BD, said: “We’ve crossed a new frontier in the application of generative AI tools for enterprise use. Previously, business concerns about the reliability of AI data interrogation were widespread. Delivering an accuracy rate of 99% is clearly a high bar for reliability when it comes to business data use cases and demonstrates that generative AI tools can be trusted to run complex data queries at an enterprise level, provided they have access to high quality data. By linking ChatGPT to our Semantic Business Data Layer solution, we can deliver highly accurate answers, without errors or hallucinations, and have solved the largest problem associated with LLMs. Businesses across every industry now have a viable way to significantly bolster productivity by automating otherwise lengthy tasks and queries and interrogating their business data quickly and effectively.”

Pinecone reinvents the vector database to let companies build knowledgeable AI

Pinecone, a leading vector database company, announced a revolutionary vector database that lets companies build more knowledgeable AI applications: Pinecone serverless. Multiple innovations including a first-of-its-kind architecture and a truly serverless experience deliver up to 50x cost reductions and eliminate infrastructure hassles, allowing companies to bring remarkably better GenAI applications to market faster.

One of the keys to success is providing large amounts of data on-demand to the Large Language Models (LLMs) inside GenAI applications. Research from Pinecone found that simply making more data available for context retrieval reduces the frequency of unhelpful answers from GPT-4 by 50%[1], even on information it was trained on. The effect is even greater for questions related to private company data. Additionally, the research found the same level of answer quality can be achieved with other LLMs, as long as enough data is made available. This means companies can significantly improve the quality of their GenAI applications and have a choice of LLMs just by making more data (or “knowledge”) available to the LLM. Yet storing and searching through sufficient amounts of vector data on-demand can be prohibitively expensive even with a purpose-built vector database, and practically impossible using relational or NoSQL databases.

Pinecone serverless is an industry-changing vector database that lets companies add practically unlimited knowledge to their GenAI applications. Since it is truly serverless, it completely eliminates the need for developers to provision or manage infrastructure and allows them to build GenAI applications more easily and bring them to market much faster. As a result, developers with use cases of any size can build more reliable, effective, and impactful GenAI applications with any LLM of their choice, leading to an imminent wave of incredible GenAI applications reaching the market. This wave has already started with companies like Notion, CS Disco, Gong and over a hundred others already using Pinecone Serverless.

“From the beginning, our mission has been to help every developer build remarkably better applications through the magic of vector search,” said Edo Liberty, Founder & CEO of Pinecone. “After creating the first and today’s most popular vector database, we’re taking another leap forward in making the vector database even more affordable and completely hassle-free.”
