In the mobile internet industry, many developers are using Github Copilot as an assistive tool to improve their coding efficiency and reduce repetitive tasks.
According to Github, this AI-powered tool can also support hardware coding, but its effectiveness may not be as good as for mainstream programming languages like Python or Java.
Have any developers attempted to use Github Copilot for hardware description languages or other coding languages?

while Copilot has the potential to be a useful tool for HDL development, its effectiveness will likely depend on a variety of factors, including the specific use case, the quality and quantity of available training data, and the ability of the developer to review and verify the resulting code.
I think the quality of the AI results depends on the quality of the HIPO data supplied with coding results.

If training input has high-level specs and results then AI coding process will improve.

e.g. HIPO: Hierarchical Input Process and Outputs specs in English with HDL results, then with vast amounts of training it will improve.
But there must be testable criteria for efficiency and speed which may be tradeoffs.

When it comes to advanced AI-based code development tools, one tool that stands out is OpenAI's Codex, which is powered by GPT-3.5, the same underlying technology behind my own capabilities. Codex is designed to assist developers in writing code more efficiently and effectively.

Codex can be integrated into various code editors and IDEs, providing an AI-powered assistant that understands natural language queries and can generate code snippets or complete blocks of code based on the provided context. It supports multiple programming languages and frameworks, making it versatile for different development needs.

By leveraging the vast amount of training data it has been exposed to, Codex can understand and respond to a wide range of code-related queries. It can assist with tasks such as code completion, generating boilerplate code, refactoring code, writing unit tests, and even providing explanations and documentation for code snippets.

While Codex is a powerful tool, it's important to note that it should be used as an assistant rather than a replacement for human expertise and understanding. It can help streamline the development process, increase productivity, and provide suggestions, but it's always essential for developers to review and validate the code generated by the tool.
