MPAI Publishes Two Standards: New Version of Context-Based Audio Enancement and the New Human and Machine Communication –

Geneva, Switzerland, February 26, 2024 –(– MPAI – Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence – the international, non-profit, and unaffiliated organisation developing AI-based data coding standards has concluded its 41st General Assembly (MPAI-41) approving the publication of two standards and announcing the availability of all its standards in linked form on the web.

Context-based Audio Enhancement (MPAI-CAE V2.1 extends the previously published Ver-sion 2.0 adding full online references to the specification of all AI Workflows, AI Modules, JSON Metadata, and Data Types used by the standard.

Human and Machine Communication (MPAI-HMC V1.0 integrates a wide range of technol-ogies from existing MPAI standards to enable new forms of communication between entities, i.e., humans present or represented in a real or virtual space or machines represented in a virtual space as speaking avatars and acting in a context using text, speech, face, gesture, the audio-visual sce-ne in which they are embedded. It.

March 11-15 MPAI will be presenting its recently published standards at a series of planned 40-min online sessions. The presentations will illustrate the scope, the features, and the technologies of each standard and will be followed by open discussions. The new web-based access to all published MPAI standards ( will also be presented.

7. Multimodal Conversation (MPAI-MMC reference software, drafting conformance testing, and new areas.
8. MPAI Metaverse Model (MPAI-MMM reference software and metaverse technologies requiring standards.
9. Neural Network Watermarking (MPAI-NNW reference software for enhanced applications.
10. Portable Avatar Format (MPAI-PAF reference software, conformance testing and new areas.
11. End-to-End Video Coding (MPAI-EEV video coding using AI-based End-to-End Video coding.
12. AI-Enhanced Video Coding (MPAI-EVC video coding with AI tools added to existing tools.
13. Server-based Predictive Multiplayer Gaming (MPAI-SPG technical report on mitigation of data loss and cheating.
14. XR Venues (MPAI-XRV preparation for the development of the standard.
