Use of technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) is extending to diverse applic­ations yielding one of the fastest-grow­ing markets in the data analysis and service sector. However, AI is developing more slowly than necessary because it lacks operational reference standards compar­able to those that have propelled digital media. Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) has identified data coding as a promising area for standardisation. MPAI considers the “AI module” (AIM) and its inter­faces as the AI building block. The syn­tax and sem­antics of… read more

We are about to leave the year 2020, the year that has seen the most virulent pandemic since about a century, but also the year that has seen the death of MPEG. That changing a thriving organisation like MPEG into an anodyne entity called SC 29 was a rash move at best is now being discovered by the very architects of the move who internally say: SC 29 has an inadequate sharing of its activities with the broader technical community, today’s media leaders participate at a marginal level at best, if at all and the restructuring of SC 29 has created major challenges for this organisation… Read more

On 202/12/21 MPAI has held a teleconference to illustrate the MPAI-AIF Call for Technologies (CfT) and associated Framework Licence (FWL). This article summarises the main points illustrated at the teleconference: What and who is MPAI, the MPAI-AIF Functional Requirements, the MPAI_AIF Call for Technologies and the MPAI-AIF Framework Licence. Miran Choi, an MPAI Director and Chair of the Communication Advisory Committee, recalled the reasons that led to the establishment of MPAI. Over the past 3 decades, media compression standards have allowed manufacturing and services to boom. However,… read more

MPAI has published a Call for Technologies (CfT) for the AI Frame­work standard (MPAI-AIF). MPAI-AIF’goal is to enable set up and execution of mixed processing/infer­ence work­flows made of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and legacy Data Proces-sing com­ponents called AI Modules (AIM). The goal of MPAI-AIF is to enable set up and execution of mixed processing and infer­ence work­flows made of ML, AI and legacy com­ponents… read more

So far, communication standards have been handled in an odd way. They are meant to serve the needs of millions, if not billions of people, still the decisions about what the standards should do are left in the hands of people who, no matter how many, are not billions, not millions, not even thousands. This is the reason why MPAI likes to call itself, as the domain extension says, a “community”… read more

MPAI faces two main challenges to achieve its mission. The first comes from MPAI’s definition of “data” and the other of “data coding”. Together they imply that the area covered by MPAI is broad and the number of standards large. Read how MPAI faces the problem and participate in refining the requirements of MPAI-AIF, likely the first MPAI area to reach standard project status… read more

The Mule appeared in 1988: silos fell into pieces,  collaboration became the rule, a flat and liquid organisation was created in a hierarchical, feudalchaotichypocriticalobtuse and incompetent organisation,  allowing the industry to yield a devices and services turnover of 1.5 T$ per annum.

That is past, now the future… read more
