Head of Ubisoft La Forge Yves Jacquier announced during the DICE 2019 summit that the publisher has partnered with Mozilla to develop an artificially intelligent coding assistant called Clever-Commit.
Clever-Commit was first introduced as a prototype last year by Ubisoft Montreal's research lab, Ubisoft La Forge, in collaboration with Concordia University.
The AI tech will reportedly help developers quickly identify and fix bugs, and help the team release better quality features faster.
According to Jacquier, Clever-Commit has already contributed to the development of major Ubisoft AAA titles, and the publisher is currently working on integrating it into other brands as well.
When discussing how the role of AI in game development is changing in a separate keynote, Jacquier went on to add that the tech has a 70 percent success rate for predicting that a code submission contains bugs.
