The NAIRR would be a shared research infrastructure providing AI researchers and students across all scientific disciplines with access to computational resources, high-quality data, educational tools, and user support.
The Biden Administration appointed the Task Force following the direction by the Congress in the National AI Initiative Act of 2020 to create a Federal advisory committee that will chart the creation of the NAIRR.
The Task Force will:
- Provide recommendations for establishing and sustaining the NAIRR, including technical capabilities, governance, administration, and assessment, as well as requirements for security, privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties.
- The Task Force will submit two reports to Congress that together will present a comprehensive strategy and implementation plan –
- An interim report in May 2022, and
- A final report in November 2022.
