TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 1, 2020 — David Egts, chief technologist of Red Hat's North American public sector business, said adopting open-source tools can drive transparency necessary to address bias in artificial intelligence, GovCon Wire reported May 12.

He wrote in a post on the Carahsoft website that the Trump administration is pursuing a "light-touch" AI regulation approach and encouraging the public to give input on rulemaking efforts related to the technology.

"It’s gratifying to see that officials at the highest levels of government advocate having a wide range of groups figure out what those roles and policies should be and how we should create rules to promote fairness and transparency," Egts noted.
