U.S. DOE Advances National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Pilot

On January 24th, 2024, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it would play a key role in the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) pilot program.

The U.S. DOE’s press release states in part:

This pilot, led by [NSF], aims to develop a shared national research infrastructure to provide researchers and students with significantly expanded access to computational resources, high-quality data, educational tools, and user support to advance AI research and discovery. As part of the pilot, DOE will provide computational resources to researchers who will build on the Department’s decades of experience in AI.


Divided into four operational areas—NAIRR Open, NAIRR Secure, NAIRR Software, and NAIRR Classroom—the NAIRR pilot is bringing private sector, non-profit and philanthropic organizations, industry partners, and nine Federal agencies together to provide access to advanced computing, datasets, models, software, training, and user support to U.S. based researchers and educators.

The NAIRR pilot is expected to run for two years.
