CRN - Red Hat CEO Keynote: 5 Boldest Remarks On AI, New Products
Red Hat CEO Matt Hicks kicked off Red Hat Summit 2023 on Tuesday in Boston by explaining his company’s artificial intelligence, open-source vision and new products to thousands in attendance. “We’re in one of those [game-changing] moments right now. It’s the moment of AI,” said Hicks during his keynote at the Boston Convention Center. Several of Red Hat’s key product launches include generative AI for Ansible, an enterprise-grade open developer hub and new services in the Red Hat Trusted Software Supply Chain suite.
TechCrunch - Red Hat brings generative AI to IT automation with Ansible Lightspeed
Automation at its core is about distilling complex processes into a playbook or recipe of actions. The next step is building low-code and no-code workflows. The recent rise of generative AI could strip that process down even more to simply describing the process and letting the tool do the rest, creating a set of steps and providing the necessary code and tools to move it through a work process without much further human intervention required (at least in theory). That’s what Red Hat wants to do with Lightspeed, its new generative AI-driven tool being announced this week, and coming out later this year.
