Response to OSTP Request for Public Comment on Draft Desirable Characteristics of Repositories for Managing and Sharing Data Resulting From Federally Funded Research
In January 2020, the White House Office of Science Technology Policy (OSTP) released a Request for Public Comment on a draft set of desirable characteristics of data repositories used to locate, manage, share, and use data resulting from Federally funded research. The Computing Research Association (CRA) published a response to the plan in March 2020.

Promising directions for workforce development and new partnerships. Input might address such topics as Workforce Development and Diversity and New Stakeholder Partnerships.”
In November, the CCC published a response that addresses points one and two. Links to the RFI and CCC response are below.
Response to OSTP Request for Information on the Future of Artificial Intelligence
In June 2016, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) released a request for information (RFI) on artificial intelligence (AI). OSTP was “interested in developing a view of AI across all sectors for the purpose of recommending directions for research and determining challenges and opportunities in this field” in order to “solicit feedback on overarching questions in AI, including AI research and the tools, technologies, and training that are needed to answer these questions.”
The CCC also partnered with OSTP and AAAI in 2016 to host a workshop on AI for Social Good. The link to the workshop report, RFI, the CCC’s response, and the full list of public responses are below:
