A consortium of 40 technology companies, including Facebook and Google, has come together to issue a set of evaluation criteria for artificial intelligence.
According to engadget, consortium in this field will be able to identify the best solutions for products, and according to the alliance, they are confident of deploying the correct solutions.
The standards, called MLPerf Inference v0.5, revolve around three common tasks of automatic learning: image classification, object discovery and machine translation.
Given the different processing capabilities of different devices, there are separate AI standards across platforms, such as smartphones, servers, and chipsets.
In addition to providing industry-leading best practices for AI, it is hoped that standards will help to initiate further innovation, despite their noise, as organizations are slow to access technology.
“By creating common and relevant metrics with MLPerf Inference v0.5 to evaluate new machine learning frameworks, hardware accelerators, and cloud computing platforms in real-world situations, these standards will create an even playing field for smaller companies,” said Peter Matson, General Manager, MLPerf
