What is it? And what comes next?

Ansible Lightspeed with IBM Watson Code Assistant is a generative AI service that helps developers create Ansible content more efficiently. It 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. 

A technology preview of the service will launch in the near future. It will be free to Ansible users and available via the Ansible extension for Visual Studio Code. An active GitHub account is required to access the service.
