What data has GitHub Copilot been trained on?
GitHub Copilot is powered by Codex, a generative pretrained AI model created by OpenAI. It has been trained on natural language text and source code from publicly available sources, including code in public repositories on GitHub.
What data does Copilot for Business collect?
GitHub Copilot relies on file content and additional data to work. It collects data to provide the service, some of which is then retained for further analysis and product improvements.
Copilot for Business collects data as described below:
User Engagement Data
When you use GitHub Copilot it will collect usage information about events generated when interacting with the IDE or editor. These events include user edit actions like completions accepted and dismissed, and error and general usage data to identify metrics like latency and features engagement. This information may include personal data, such as pseudonymous identifiers.
Code Snippets Data
GitHub Copilot transmits snippets of your code from your IDE to GitHub to provide suggestions to you. Code snippets data is only transmitted in real-time to return Suggestions, and is discarded once a suggestion is returned. Copilot for Business does not retain any Code Snippets Data.
How will my code snippets from using GitHub Copilot be used?
User Engagement Data is used by GitHub, Microsoft, and OpenAI to provide the service and to enable improvements.
Such uses may include:
Evaluating GitHub Copilot, e.g., by measuring the positive impact it has on the user
Fine tuning ranking and sorting algorithms and prompt crafting
Detecting potential abuse of GitHub Copilot or violation of Acceptable Use Policies
Conducting experiments and research related to developers and their use of developer tools and services
