The Rundown: Cognition AI just introduced Devin, an autonomous AI agent that can independently write entire software projects from scratch based on simple text prompts.

The details:

  • Devin can plan and execute complex coding tasks with hundreds of steps.

  • The autonomous agent can code while learning, fixing bugs, and collaborating with users in real time.

  • In demos, Devin built complete websites and apps in under 10 minutes and successfully completed real gigs posted on Upwork by itself.

  • On a coding benchmark, the AI agent solved 13.86% of real-world GitHub issues end-to-end, crushing the previous SOTA benchmark of 1.96%.

Why it matters: Cognition AI isn't just claiming to have built a better coding assistant but a truly artificial software engineer. If it lives up to the hype, Devin could be the first true look into a future where anyone can spawn an AI worker to build a concept, no coding skills required.

The Rundown: A Pulitzer Prize administrator just revealed that five of this year's 45 top journalist finalists disclosed using AI in their reporting process for the first time ever.

The details:

  • The Pulitzer Prize is a prestigious award for achievements in journalism, magazines, and literature in the United States.

  • Submissions noted using AI in processes including research, reporting, and storytelling.

  • The Pulitzer Board also added an AI usage disclosure requirement for the first time this year.

Why it matters: With more outlets adopting AI and partnering with major firms, it's clear that tech has a role to play in journalism’s future — and the top award panels seem to agree. But AI still faces an uphill battle with legacy media to be seen as a tool rather than a replacement or plagiarism machine.
