The National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Pilot

DOE, NSF Launch The National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Pilot

May 6, 2024: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) are thrilled to announce the first 35 projects that will be supported with computational time through the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource (NAIRR) Pilot, marking a significant milestone in fostering responsible AI research across the nation.

“DOE Office of Science has decades of experience in cutting-edge AI research and a longstanding commitment to developing world-leading, high performance computing resources that are open to the scientific community,” said Harriet Kung, Acting Director of the DOE Office of Science. “We are proud to continue our mission by providing valuable access to some of the fastest computing facilities in the world to the NAIRR Pilot. Innovations developed in collaboration with industry partners are designed to address not only traditional scientific workloads but also the growing demands of AI research at scale. We are excited to see what the future holds for AI in science.”

The NAIRR Pilot—a result of President Joe Biden’s landmark Executive Order on the Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of AI—will provide AI researchers and students access to key AI resources and data. Twenty-seven projects will be supported through resources on NSF-funded advanced computing systems, including Delta at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign; Frontera and Lonestar at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at The University of Texas at Austin; and the Neocortex system at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. An additional eight projects will have access to DOE-supported systems, including the Summit supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the AI Testbed at Argonne National Laboratory.

The community is also invited to compete for time on DOE’s newest exascale platforms at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory. DOE invites proposals to access its leadership high performance computing systems at Argonne and Oak Ridge National Laboratories through its INCITE program at The current call for proposals closes June 14, 2024.
