AI aint cheap


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.
