Hi all,

I have a precise job to be done and decided to check this list for potential volunteers.

As you may have read, the European Union is the world's first jurisdiction to propose legislation on artificial intelligence. [1]

Long story short: We want to pitch the idea of mandatory open source for AI systems used by the government. The current proposal contains lots of fluffy language on transparency and on how citizens should always know what's happening. We feel that an actual open source requirement would fit in here. But we need to have concrete amendment suggestions at hand in order to seriously pitch it. So I decided to trawl this list for brainpower :)

Thanks and cheers,
