The Mitre Corporation is to deploy a GPU supercomputer, the new DGX SuperPod system from Nvidia for government use to support the company’s Federal AI Sandbox, a platform to improve experimentation with AI-enabled applications across federal government agencies.

“Mitre’s purchase of a DGX SuperPod will help turbocharge the US federal government’s development of its AI initiatives,” said Anthony Robbins, vice president of public sector at Nvidia. “AI has enormous potential to improve government services for citizens and solve big challenges, like transportation and cybersecurity.”

The company said the sandbox will be applied to work for federal agencies in areas including national security, healthcare, transportation, and climate. "The recent executive order on AI encourages federal agencies to reduce barriers for AI adoptions, but agencies often lack the computing environment necessary for experimentation and prototyping," says Charles Clancy, Mitre SVP and CTO. "Our new Federal AI Sandbox will help level the playing field, making the high-quality compute power needed to train and test custom AI solutions available to any agency."
