Feedback on the National Artificial Intelligence Research Task Force’s Interim Report

July 2022Feedback
Stanford HAI submitted this response in July 2022 to support the work of the National Science Foundation and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to implement the initial findings and recommendations of the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Task Force. We concurred with a large majority of recommendations in the interim report that aligned very closely with our white paper and provided a set of feedback, including limiting NAIRR access to researchers at U.S. higher education institutions during the first three years of a pilot run, adopting a dual investment strategy with regard to computing infrastructure, and adopting a tiered model for the NAIRR proposal review and ethics review.
