MPAI has published a book titled Towards Pervasive and Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence: How standards can put a great technology at the service of humankind
With the printing industry sparing no efforts publishing books on Artificial Intelligence (AI), why should there be another that, in its title and subtitle, combines the overused words “AI” and “trustworthy”, with the alien words “standards” and “pervasive”?
The answer is that the book describes a solution that covers all the elements of the title: to effectively combine the AI and trustworthy words, but also to make AI pervasive. How? By developing standards for AI-based data coding.
Many industries need standards to run their business and used to have high respect for them. Users benefit from standards: MP3 put users in control of the content they wanted to enjoy, and the television – and now the video – experiences have little to do with how users used to approach audio-visual content 30 years ago.
At that time, the media industry was loath to invest in open standards. The successful MPEG standards development model, however, changed its attitude. Similarly, the AI industry has been slow in developing AI-based data coding standards making proprietary solutions their preferred route.
MPAI has shown that is can take different types of data, encode them using AI and develop standards that make the technology and the benefits it brings with it pervasive. At the same time, MPAI standards can take a technology that may well be untrusted and make it trustworthy.
The MPAI book describes how MPAI develops standards that can also be used, how standards can make AI pervasive, and how MPAI gives users the means to make informed decisions about how to choose an implementation having the required level of trustworthiness.
This is the time to join the MPAI unique adventure. MPAI is open to those who want to make its vision real.
