Creating a National AI Research Resource

In July 2021, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science Foundation called upon the public for information on implementing a National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR). By September, over 80 responses were submitted from leaders across academia, industry, and government. This joint seminar will unpack two of these responses from the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, the Center for Data Innovation, and SeedAI. 

Join Russell Wald, Director of Policy of Stanford HAI, Hodan Omaar, Policy Analyst at the Center for Data Innovation, and Austin Carson, Founder and President of SeedAI for a discussion and Q&A on how to best design, implement and maintain a NAIRR.
