Leidos has formed an exclusive partnership with the code intelligence platform Sourcegraph. Together, they will launch secure, generative artificial intelligence-enabled software development tools tailored for government clients.
“Leidos is committed to providing our customers with trusted mission AI tools that help them prepare for success in an increasingly complex and dynamic world,” said Roy Stevens, Leidos national security sector president. “By creating this alliance with Sourcegraph, we are enhancing our capabilities with a context-aware code platform, that empowers Leidos and its customer developers to deliver purpose-built, mission software faster and more securely.”
Over the past decade, Sourcegraph has developed its code graph, which underpins Cody, the AI coding assistant designed for writing, fixing and maintaining code; and Code Search, a tool that enables developers to navigate their entire codebase for extensive migrations and security enhancements.
Through this new alliance, Leidos and Sourcegraph plan to leverage generative AI to provide new capabilities across many markets and customer missions.
“Leidos and Sourcegraph both understand the potential for AI in software development for the companies that embrace it early on, especially in the government sector,” said Sourcegraph CEO and Co-Founder Quinn Slack.“Leidos’ deep software, AI, and market expertise, paired with Cody’s flexibility and powerful understanding of the codebase, means even the largest, most sophisticated organizations can harness the power of AI coding assistants to seamlessly navigate complex codebases, identify vulnerabilities, and support the highest standards of code integrity and security.”
