The U.S. National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office has launched a new web portal meant to help AI researchers explore and find data, testbeds, and federal grant programs that could support their research efforts, according to the AI office’s director Lynne Parker.

The AI Researchers Portal on AI.gov includes a repository of 40 federally funded testbeds related to AI research, a directory of research grant programs for AI-related projects, and a data resources section that offers links to federal datasets, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Big Data Program datasets, NASA’s open data clearinghouse, and the National Institutes of Health-backed open data repositories, Parker announced.

In addition, the portal’s computing resources section offers information on various federal programs that could help facilitate access to computational infrastructure programs to support AI research efforts. 

Parker said her office partnered with federal agencies and departments and the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development coordination office to develop the portal. To access the portal, click here.
