Merly Mentor

The world’s first autonomous AI software development agent

Mentor begins by deeply studying a code repository across its entire lifetime. Mentor considers more than just source code. Once it’s done, it begins working–entirely on its own–to make the software better.

Mentor’s AI code reasoning platform provides capabilities you won't find anywhere else.

Mentor understands code and explains it to developers so every level of the organization can better analyze, visualize, and reason about it in ways that help the entire project: code reviews, defect detection, security, performance issues, developmental trends, and more!

Code analysis on a lifetime scale–Mentor handles entire repositories with millions of lines of code

• Anomalies detected and tracked over the project’s whole history

• Issue detection from novel machine learning (ML) technology

Taking advantage of fully automated software systems, Mentor goes beyond anomaly detection

• Insights provided for any Issue from any point in time of the development process

• Rich experience for understanding anomalies and notable code fragments

Supports 15 programming languages (and generalizes):

Mentor doesn’t need a developer to tell it what to do.

What is considered a computationally intractable

feat for other AI systems

is fully obtainable for

Merly’s AI platform

Mentor learns intentions

and behaviors, enabling

It is the developer.

Mentor’s proprietary

system reveals how a

over it's lifetime

Mentor prepares a variety

of code solutions and

recommendations for

the dev team to review

and act upon

Mentor unlocks new potential in software quality.

With Mentor Insights and Mentor Summaries, Merly Mentor

provides capabilities you won’t find anywhere else.


Like a credit score, but for code. Mentor Summaries scores your repository’s health and provides rich insights and strategies for improvement.

Mentor Summaries provides:

  • Long-term and short-term activity scoring

  • Holistic data-driven scoring of code quality and development patterns

  • Assessment of long-term patterns across   the repository’s evolution

  • Multi-year trend analysis

  • Discovery and analysis of various     discrete project development phases

  • Actionable recommendations

  • Insights into codebase management       best practices, contributor dynamics,     past mistakes, and potential future consequences for not taking action


After identifying anomalies, using Merly’s multiple novel machine learning, programming language, data, and software systems, Mentor Insights provides multiple fully-automated explanations and revisions

for code corrections.


Mentor Insights provides:

  • High-level analysis with explanations   of the expression in plain language

  • Detailed explanations and reasoning  for evaluating performance, possible bugs, and security concerns

  • Readability enhancements

  • Maintainability and technical debt improvements

  • Conclusion with code to use as a potential revision and an explanation  in natural language

  • Privacy controls allow companies to keep their code behind their firewall
