MPAI Calls for New Members to Support Its Standard Developments Plans

Geneva, Switzerland, November 25, 2022 --( The international, non-profit, unaffiliated Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) standards developing organisation has concluded its 26th General Assembly (MPAI-26). MPAI is calling for new members to support the development of its work program.

Planned for approval in the first months of 2023 are 5 standards and 1 technical report:
1. AI Framework (MPAI-AIF Standard for a secure AIF environment executing AI Workflows (AIW) composed of AI Modules (AIM).
2. Avatar Representation and Animation (MPAI-ARA Standard for generation and animation of interoperable avatar models reproducing humans and expressing a Personal Status.
3. Context-based Audio Enhancement (MPAI-CAE Standard to describe an audio scene to support human interaction with autonomous vehicles and metaverse applications.
4. Multimodal Conversation (MPAI-MMC Standard for Personal Status generalising the notion of Emotion including Cognitive State and Social Attitude.
5. MPAI Metaverse Model (MPAI-MMM Technical Report covering the design, deployment, operation, and interoperability of Metaverse Instances.
6. Neural Network Watermarking (MPAI-NNW Standard specifying methodologies to evaluate neural network-based watermarking solutions.

The MPAI work plan also includes exploratory activities, some of which are close to becoming standard or technical report projects:
1. AI Health (MPAI-AIH Targets an architecture where smartphones store users’ health data processed using AI and AI Models are updated using Federated Learning.
2. Connected Autonomous Vehicles (MPAI-CAV Targets the Human-CAV Interaction Environment Sensing, Autonomous Motion, and Motion Actuation subsystems implemented as AI Workflows.
3. End-to-End Video Coding (MPAI-EEV Extends the video coding fronties using AI-based End-to-End Video coding.
4. AI-Enhanced Video Coding (MPAI-EVC Improves existing video coding with AI tools for short-to-medium term applications.
5. Server-based Predictive Multiplayer Gaming (MPAI-SPG ). Uses AI to train neural networks that help an online gaming server to compensate data losses and detects false data.
6. XR Venues (MPAI-XRV Identifies common AI Modules used across various XR-enabled and AI-enhanced use cases where venues may be both real and virtual.

It is a good opportunity for legal entities supporting the MPAI mission and able to contribute to the development of standards for the efficient use of data to join MPAI ( now, also considering that membership is immediately active and will last until 2023/12/31.
