What’s the first step to establishing a network of “artificial intelligence research institutes” across America? How about sponsoring a new grant opportunity for researchers?
The USDA-NIFA, NSF, and other federal entities have joined forces on a new Limited Submission Opportunity (LSO). The UHM Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) will oversee an internal competition to determine which two proposals the institution will be able to endorse for submission. The internal competition will be based on pre-proposals to be submitted to the OVCR by October 5 at high noon.
“This grant opportunity builds on recent awards for the first two National AI Research Institutes: Next Generation Food Systems at UC-Davis, and Artificial Intelligence for Future Agricultural Resilience, Management, and Sustainability at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,” says Walter Bowen, Associate Dean and Associate Director for Research. “I encourage those interested in learning more to register now for a webinar that NSF will conduct on September 21.”
