A recent press release reports, “OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code application development, today announced outsystems.ai, a new program that advances the company’s mission to bring the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to software development. The project introduces a new outsystems.ai domain, names a new head of the OutSystems AI/ML group, and launches new and ongoing research into AI-assisted software development. The outsystems.ai project builds on the company’s previously announced ‘Project Turing’ AI initiative. Project Turing, named for the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence Alan Turing, established a new AI Centre of Excellence in Lisbon, committed 20 percent of the company’s overall R&D budget to AI/ML, and developed partnerships with industry experts, tech leaders, and universities to drive original research and innovation.
The release continues, “Heading up outsystems.ai is Antonio Alegria, an expert in computer engineering and machine learning, and a veteran at designing and building products to leverage AI. ‘The outsystems.ai initiative illustrates the commitment OutSystems is making to explore new technologies that improve software development processes,’ said Alegria, head of OutSystems AI group. ‘We look forward to building on Project Turing, which aims to continue the evolution of intuitive development started by the Turing programming language. Humans speaking the language of computers has brought technology a long way, but as machines continue to change and their ubiquity in our daily lives increases, we need to evolve bi-directional communication in a way that is more natural for everyone’.”
