Codota Buys Canada’s TabNine


Israeli startup Codota has completed the acquisition of TabNine, a code prediction tool. TabNine was founded and is run by Jacob Jackson, a 22-year-old computer science graduate from the University of Waterloo in Canada.

According to the company, the acquisition creates a comprehensive AI platform for software authoring, as well as the only one which fully supports nearly all popular programming languages – Java, JavaScript, Python, C, HTML as well as many others.

The TabNine product will continue to operate independently, and the combined technological stack will be used to power both products. The combined technology provides prediction precision and completeness that far exceed each individual engine, the company said. Codota already offers an initial combined code prediction for Javascript on WebStorm and IntelliJ IDEs in beta.

Codota, backed by Silicon Valley’s Khosla Ventures, developed an AI infrastructure that emulates the human understanding of computer code. The synergy between Codota and TabNine is expected to further increase development speed and efficiency.
