Regarding GitHub Copilot, as per Paul Thurrott’s article which is getting shared around (probably because the original report from the Wall Street Journal and we can’t share that (it’s behind a paywall):
- GitHub Copilot costs $10 per month to subscribe to as an individual developer ($19 per month for businesses)
- But costs Microsoft around $30 per month to provide (via Open AI calls etc)
- And some users cost as much as $80 per month
Making a profit on AI is hard, even for the biggest tech companies.
