⚾️ The Elevator Pitch:

While software is essential in basically every industry, only 0.3% of the population knows how to write code!

Debuild is building a ML-powered dev tool takes in plain English, and outputs runnable code that powers web apps (by using OpenAI's new GPT-3 natural language model).

πŸ” Why We Like It

  1. πŸ’» Debuild uses bleeding-edge Natural Language Processing.
    Their founders have VIP access to OpenAI's GPT-3 model. This model is a big deal - the model 'learned' from the entire internet (versus a few Sherlock Holmes texts). With GPT-3, Debuild is translating English-to-Code faster than you can say "I can handle the business side."
  2. πŸ“ˆ Demand for no-code solutions has skyrocketed.
    You've probably heard of Squarespace and Zapier. Generating code from plain English has been in high-demand as designers, PMs, and non-technical founders embrace technology in their businesses. Debuild is filling a desperate need for many aspiring builders who have the ideas but lack the programming training.

Our mission is to give everyone the ability to create valuable software.
