Red Hat Announces Ansible Lightspeed AI Service


The IBM Watson-assisted AI service helps create Ansible content.

Red Hat has introduced Ansible Lightspeed, a new generative AI service aimed at Ansible automation.

“Using natural language processing, the service will integrate with Watson Code Assistant, expected to be generally available later this year, to access IBM foundation models and quickly build automation code,” the announcement says.

Ansible Lightspeed, which is designed for both developers and operators, “reads plain English entered by a user, and then accesses IBM watsonx foundation models to generate automation code recommendations in Ansible syntax that are ready to quickly deploy as an Ansible Playbook.”

The technology preview will be available later in 2023.
