ICT STANDARDS AND ONGOING WORK AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL IN THE AI FIELD - A LANDSCAPE ANALYSIS

With this report the StandICT.eu project presents a description of the ICT standards and ongoing work at international level in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a first analysis of the landscape.

The report identifies 5 Standards Development Organisations (SDOs): IEEE, ISO/IEC, ITU-T, ETSI and CEN-CENELEC. The first 4 bodies are active in AI standardisation at the time of writing this report. CEN-CENELEC are planning to launch activities in 2019.
 

For these 4 SDOs information on their active groups, details of their work and the respective state/outcome is provided in the main part of this report. Followed by the same exercise for the two identified Standards Settings Organisations (SSOs): W3C and IRTF, their active groups and the respective state/outcome. With this information an initial analysis of the AI standardisation landscape as of the end of 2018 is performed in the next section with the main outcomes that the number of groups chaired by Europeans is significant, that there is room for European experts contributing to ongoing and future standardisation work.

The next sections focus on AI-related related Community and Industrial activities, EC Communication and reports, followed by European projects and platforms that StandICT.eu considers relevant for cooperating. The report is concluded by considerations on future priorities.
