CodiumAI To Make A Splash

Over his two decades of experience in the tech industry, CodiumAI co-founder and CEO Itamar Friedman has personally experienced the pain of building test suites to check his code logic. He found that while there are tools to check for code security and performance, there has been a dearth of code logic checkers. He launched CodiumAI to solve that problem by coming up with a solution that builds those tests automatically using generative AI, and the company has now landed a hefty $11 million seed investment. He says that most developers save time by using boilerplate code to jump start their programming, then fill in with custom code. They typically build tests to check that the combined code works as designed. With CodiumAI, the company replaces the need to build these logic tests manually by building the tests for you.
