Introducing Devika, An Indian Substitute For AI Engineer Devin

By Consultants Review Team Tuesday, 02 April 2024

There's new competition for Devin, the self-proclaimed first completely autonomous AI software engineer in history. Similar to Devin, Devika is an open-source AI software engineer made by Indian developer Mufeed VH. 

Meet Indian AI engineer Devika. 

Devika is an Agentic AI Software Engineer, according to Mufeed, who can comprehend complex human instructions, deconstruct them into manageable parts, find pertinent information, and create code to accomplish the desired result. 

Devika is an open-source competitor to Devin by Cognition AI that is meant to be competitive.

What is possible for Devika

Devika has twelve autonomous models that may communicate with one another in a feedback loop to comprehend, explore, investigate, code, document, and decide based on the user's request to do a task.

Devika is capable of running the code she produces, fixing or patching it on her own if she runs into any issues without the need for human assistance. She supports Claude 3, GPT-4, GPT-3.5, and Local LLMs.

Devin is superior to Devika in every way

Though the 21-year-old from Thrissur, Kerala, acknowledges that Devika is not as talented as Devin, he is optimistic that with the help of the open source community, he will succeed. "As of now, Devika is far from the capabilities of Devin... but we'll eventually get there," he stated.

How Devin became a global sensation 

Devin was unveiled last month by US-based AI firm Cognition, earning him the title of the first completely autonomous AI software engineer in history. 

Devin can organize and carry out intricate technical jobs comprising hundreds of judgments, according to Cognition. Devin may also learn over time, correct errors, and remember essential information at every turn. 

Devin also comes with a sandboxed compute environment that has the standard developer tools, such as a shell, code editor, and browser—everything a person might possibly need. 

Devin may also actively communicate with the user, providing real-time updates on its development, welcoming comments, and guiding them through design decisions as needed.
