  • Post category:MPAI

Some 50 days after having been announced, MPAI was established as a not-for-profit organisation with the mission to develop data coding standards with an associated mechanism designed to facilitate the creation of licences. Some 150 days have passed since its establishment. Where is MPAI in its journey to accomplish its missions? Creating an organisation that would execute the mission in 50 days was an achievement, but the next goal of giving the organisation the means to accomplish its mission was…

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…

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…

Having a conversation with a machine

Like it or not, we do what the title says regularly, with mixed results. Searching for that file in your computer should be easy but often it is not, finding that an email is a hassle, especially when retrieving it is so important, and talking to an information service is often a challenge to your nervous system. I have no intention to criticise the – difficult – work that others have done in my own - original - domain, but…
