AI-based Media Coding and Beyond
MPAI – Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence is the first body developing data coding standards that have Artificial Intelligence (AI) as its core technology. MPAI believes that universally accessible standards for AI-based data coding can have the same positive effects on AI as standards had on digital media.
Elementary components of MPAI standards – AI Modules (AIM) – expose standard interfaces for operations in a standard AI Framework (AIF). As their performance may depend on the technologies used, MPAI expects that competing developers providing AIMs will promote horizontal markets of AI solutions that build on and further promote AI innovation.
Finally, the MPAI Framework Licenses provide guidelines to IPR holders facilitating the availability of compatible licenses to standard users.
