Holy open source Batman, Robin AI whacks code reviews into shape

Data privacy automation company Integral has announced the company’s first open source project, Robin AI.

This is a technology that reviews code changes and provides constructive feedback, helping to improve the code.

Robin AI was initially developed as an internal tool to assist Integral’s engineers in writing performant and robust code. 

After ‘surpassing expectations’ in improving code quality and development efficiency, Integral decided to share Robin AI with the engineering community by making it an open source project.

Powered by GPT, Robin AI uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) capabilities to review code changes. 

The tool performs best in JavaScript repositories and offers human-like feedback. With the code review process automated, engineering teams can streamline their workflows and focus on creating high-quality software. 

Batman’s sidekick

As a ready-to-use GitHub action, Robin AI offers a seamless integration that can be implemented immediately. 

“Because it serves as a trusty partner in enhancing the code development processes, we named the project after Batman’s sidekick Robin,” said John Kuhn, co-founder and CTO at Integral. “It has served us well in boosting product velocity and reducing production bugs for Integral’s engineering team. By open-sourcing the software, we hope that developers worldwide can automate and optimize their code change reviews, increasing quality and productivity.”

Several private repositories such as Factored Quality have provided valuable feedback on their experience with Robin AI, further enhancing its capabilities. To learn more about Robin AI, access the project on GitHub.

Integral’s main business enables organisations to create compliant datasets for analysis, sharing, machine learning, and more. By making data compliant throughout the ecosystem, Integral is building the data enablement layer to automate data compliance.
