Why my AI is not understanding the whole code base?

Question:
AI is very narrow minded it’s not able to understand the full codebase and it is becoming very difficult to always tell which file it needs to be changed. We want to use it for our enterprise but it is able to answer for pet project but not the whole code base. When can we expect this feature before we adopt in our organisation.

Unfortunately, such shortcomings of generative code AI’s cannot be fixed as easily and quickly, but workarounds might be possible. Would a way to prioritize code from your code base over general public code be beneficial to your situation?

Can someone suggest how can one understand any code base easily with AI or helper tools. We are constantly seeing new code bases emerge to get the sense of whats going on i feel it am spending lot of time debugging them is there good way to approach looking into newer codebases?
