USPTO Contributes Patent and Trademark Data to Help Launch National AI Research Resource Pilot Program

This week, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) alongside public and private sector collaborators launched the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) pilot program. NAIRR seeks to advance AI discovery and innovation by making resources available from 11 different federal agencies and over 25 private companies. The pilot program was formed as a direct reaction to President Biden's 2023 AI Executive Order (specifically section 5.2(a)(i)) and targets several of the EO's broad topics including "Ensuring Responsible and Effective Government Use of AI" and "Promoting Innovation and Competition."

With an estimated six-year budget of $2.6 billion, NAIRR seeks to provide researchers with access to AI-relevant data and compute resources, which are being made available by agencies including the NSF, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to name a few. Read more
