The National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Pilot

The NAIRR Pilot aims to connect U.S. researchers and educators to computational, data, and training resources needed to advance AI research and research that employs AI. Federal agencies are collaborating with government-supported and non-governmental partners to implement the Pilot as a preparatory step toward an eventual full NAIRR implementation.
  • Spur innovation
  • Increase diversity of talent
  • Improve capacity
  • Advance trustworthy AI

Current Opportunities

Survey of US Researchers, Educators, and Students

We are eager to learn your use cases for the NAIRR Pilot, your challenges using AI resources, and other perspectives. The survey is open through March 8, 2024.

Pilot resources

Partners are contributing many kinds of resources to the pilot, such as pre-trained models, AI-ready datasets, and relevant platforms.
