Task Force Offers Roadmap for National AI Research Cyberinfrastructure Establishment

A task force co-chaired by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science Foundation has released its final report on the establishment of a national infrastructure that would expand access to computational resources, educational tools and data for artificial intelligence researchers and students.

The National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Task Force conducted 11 public meetings and solicited feedback through two requests for information to inform the development of the final report, the White House said Tuesday.

According to the report, spurring innovation, increasing diversity of talent, improving capacity and advancing trustworthy AI are the four goals that should drive the establishment of NAIRR.

The NAIRR administration and governance should follow a cooperative stewardship model, whereby a single Federal agency serves as the administrative home for NAIRR operations and a Steering Committee comprising principals from Federal agencies with equities in AI research drives the strategic direction of the NAIRR,” the report reads.

The task force stated that the research cyberinfrastructure should provide access to data and computational resources, software and testing tools, testbeds and user support services through an integrated portal; establish the standard for responsible AI research through the implementation of governance processes; and implement system safeguards in accordance with established guidelines.

The task force issued its interim report in May 2022.
