Innovation involves defying the present. Because tomorrow doesn’t exist, it is being created today. And developers are its main builders. The software they produce is present in practically all existing industries and leads to technological progress, improving the quality of life of billions of people worldwide.
We believe that the next Big Bang will be artificial. Because AI is one of the top drivers of human innovation nowadays, and the software development world is no stranger to this impact.
That’s why our purpose is to empower teams with AI to create smart, beautiful software.
Augoor has been an amazing journey powered by AI. It all began in 2019 as a Globant initiative that developed a tool called Augmented Coding. It could find code across repositories through semantic searches, complete lines based on existing ones, and automatically generate documentation by ciphering code and returning natural language. But we never stopped researching, training models, testing, and learning from feedback. Until the evolution was so significant that something new was born.
Augoor could shape the future of software development.
In memory of Haldo Sponton (1985-2022)
“What if we could build an engine that understands both natural and programming languages, creating a bridge between those two worlds?." With this goal in mind, Haldo Sponton, Globant’s VP of Technology and Head of AI, brought together the team behind Augmented Coding, the origin story of Augoor.
As humans, we are made of stories. Stories that give meaning to our lives. And Haldo will live forever in ours. Gone too soon, but always in our hearts. Your legacy will inspire us every day, H.
In ancient Rome, augury was the practice of interpreting the will of the gods to move into the future strategically. An omen to making the complex simple. So this name relates to the visionary essence of our brand.
