The NITRD Subcommittee will hold a symposium to mark the 30th anniversary of the signing of the High-Performance Computing (HPC) Act of 1991 and the launching of the High-Performance Computing and Communications Program, now known as the NITRD Program.
The NITRD NCO and the NSF, as part of an interagency working group on information integrity, request input from interested parties on a range of questions pertaining to Federal priorities for research and development efforts to address misinformation and disinformation. The purpose of this RFI is to understand ways in which the Federal Government might enable research and development activities to advance the trustworthiness of information, mitigate the effects of information manipulation, and foster an environment of trust and resilience in which individuals can be discerning consumers of information.
The Office of Science and Technology Policy, on behalf of the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence (Select Committee), the NSTC Machine Learning and AI Subcommittee (MLAI-SC), the National AI Initiative Office (NAIIO), and the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) National Coordination Office (NCO), requests input from all interested parties on updating the National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan. Through this Request for Information (RFI), OSTP, the Select Committee, NAIIO, and NITRD NCO seek input from the public, including academic, State, and industry groups; those directly performing Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and development (R&D); and those directly affected by such R&D, on the ways in which the strategic plan should be revised and improved. The public input provided in response to this RFI will assist OSTP, the Select Committee, MLAI-SC, NAIIO, and NITRD NCO in updating the National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan.
The Department of Commerce (Department), with the assistance of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is seeking information in order to inform the planning and design of potential programs to: Incentivize investment in semiconductor manufacturing facilities and associated ecosystems; provide for shared infrastructure to accelerate semiconductor research, development, and prototyping; and support research related to advanced packaging and advanced metrology to ensure a robust domestic semiconductor industry. Responses to this Request for Information (RFI) will inform the planning of the Department of Commerce for the potential implementation of these programs.
The NITRD Advanced Wireless Test Platform (AWTP) Team and Federal Mobility Group (FMG) Joint 5G Workshop will consist of two half-day sessions with a focus on advancing the FMG work product – Framework to Conduct 5G Testing – by exploring its applicability to specific 5G inspired use cases.
OSTP and the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) Subcommittees on the Future Advanced Computing Ecosystem (FACE) and Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) request input from interested parties on the goals, value, and necessary approaches for establishing a National Strategic Computing Reserve (NSCR).
The workshop on “Software in the Era of Extreme Heterogeneity” will explore challenges and opportunities brought on by extreme heterogeneity of emerging and future computational platforms and how software and community must evolve to respond to the challenges being placed on high-end computing software development and sustainment.
The NITRD Program holds meetings that are open to the public to attend. The Joint Engineering Team (JET) and Middleware And Grid Interagency Coordination (MAGIC) Team provide an opportunity for the public to engage and participate in information sharing with Federal agencies. The JET and MAGIC Team report to the NITRD Large Scale Networking (LSN) Interagency Working Group (IWG).
This workshop will focus on the opportunities and challenges posed by the application of existing and new Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques in the wireless spectrum context.
On behalf the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) Committee on Science & Technology Enterprise, NITRD NCO requests input from all interested parties on the VIA Task Force Report: R&D Opportunities in Video & Image Analytics including from those working on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and/or VIA research and development (R&D). Responses to this Request for Information (RFI) can be general suggestions of revisions or improvements to the VIA Task Force Report, comments on the six strategic goals and objectives, and suggestions to the implementation of the strategic goals and objectives. The public input provided in response to this RFI will inform NITRD NCO, and the VIA Task Force on developing the VIA Task Force Report: R&D Opportunities in Video & Image Analytics.
