MPAI consolidates the development of three AI-based data coding standards

Geneva, Switzerland – 14 April 2021. At its 7th General Assembly, the international, unaffiliated Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) standards association has received substantial proposals in response to its two Calls for Technologies on Enhanced Audio and Multimodal Conversation that closed on the 12th of April. Meanwhile the development of its foundational AI Framework standard is steadily progressing targeting July 2021 for delivery of the standard. The goal of the the AI Framework standard, nicknamed…

Why the MPAI way is the only way

Research, business and society are gradually coming to realise that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not just another generation of data processing technologies. It is a powerful set of pervasive technologies impacting the way individuals and society have behaved creating a set of customers, rules and laws governing their life and organisation. The article Artificial Intelligence Beyond Deep Neural Networks by Naga Rayapati, Forbes Councils Member is enlightening of the level of awareness achieved: Neural networks act as black boxes and…

MPAI tackles AI-based risk analysis standard in a new Call for Technologies

Geneva, Switzerland – 17 March 2021. At its 6th General Assembly, the international, unaffiliated Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) standards association has promoted its 4th standard project Compression and understanding of industrial data (MPAI-CUI) to the Call for Technologies stage. The standard aims to enable Artificial Intellig­ence (AI)-based filtering and extraction of information from a company’s governance, financial and risk data enabling prediction of company performance, e.g., organisational adequacy or default probability. All parties, including…

A unified approach to AI-based data coding standardisation

1        Introduction Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) is an international, non-affiliated, not-for-profit registered in Geneva. MPAI’s mission is to promote the efficient use of Data by developing standards for coding any type of data, especially using new technologies to enable the use of Artificial Intelligence integrating data coding components in Information and Communication Technology systems bridging the gap between standards and their practical use by means of Framework Licenses. While Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are…

MPAI receives technologies for its AI framework standard and calls for technologies supporting audio and human-machine conversation

Geneva, Switzerland – 17 february 2021. At its 5th General Assembly, Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI), an international, unaffiliated standards association Has kicked off work on its AI Framework (MPAI-AIF) standard after receiving substantial proposed technologies. Is calling for technologies to develop two standards related to audio (MPAI-CAE) and multimodal conversation (MPAI-MMC). Will soon be developing the Framework Licence for the next maturing project “Compression and Understanding of Industrial Data” (MPAI-CUI). MPAI has reviewed responses to…

MPAI standards and AI explainability

Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers great advantages to humans because an appropriately designed AI system can perform tasks that humans may not wish or be able to do, in ways that have degrees of similarity to what humans do. Advances of AI promise to continuously improve AI system performance. In the early 1940's, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov devised the three laws a robot must obey: 1. don't injure a human or allow a human to be injured, 2. obey a…
