Welcome to the AI Platform Task Force Wiki

This wiki is a place to keep the community (OMG members and non-members alike) informed of the activities derived from OMG's 2019 initiative on Artificial Intelligence, and consolidated into a new Platform Task Force chartered in September of that year.

The vision behind the AI PTF is to create and “animate” an OMG-based AI center, coordinating and complementing AI-related efforts in other groups (such as Ontology, Retail, Healthcare. and more) and especially considering aspects that can benefit from standardization – making OMG the place to come for AI technology standardization.

Charter and History of the AI PTF

Charter (adopted on 27 Sep 2019)
OMG’s Artificial Intelligence Platform Task Force (AIPTF) will promote the adoption of specifications that standardize foundational capabilities of artificial intelligence.

Among the goals of the AIPTF is freeing AI technology suppliers as well as end users from interoperability and interchange limitations with respect to models, languages and data, and to enable them to focus instead on development of advanced AI applications.

In the context of this charter, Artificial Intelligence is defined broadly and includes, but is not limited to:
* Modeling of AI artifacts
* Machine learning, deep learning and neural networks
* Image and sound recognition
* Virtual and augmented reality
* Autonomous systems and agents
* Knowledge representations
* Natural language processing (NLP)
* Security, privacy, social and other ethical aspects of AI

The purpose of the AIPTF includes development of foundational specifications that support AI in the above broad sense.

The AIPTF may, when appropriate, generate discussion papers, RFIs or RFPs or recommend technologies for adoption. It will also collaborate with other OMG subgroups to identify and document use cases and interoperability requirements for AI, and identify the need for AI-related additions or revisions to those groups’ existing and emerging specifications. It will seek to identify external stakeholders, including other standards development organizations, and partner with them as needed.

History

The history of OMG's efforts related to AI can be summarized as follows:

  • The Agent Platform SIG was created in (date).
  • OMG's Board of Directors requested the development of an OMG AI standards strategy in March 2019.
  • The development of that strategy was interrupted in May 2019 by NIST's issuance of a Request for Information on AI standards; the focus shifted to responding to the RFI, which was achieved in early June.
  • At the June 2019 meeting, the Agent PSIG was expanded and transformed into an AI PSIG.
  • The development of the AI strategy resumed and completed during the summer, leading to a paper adopted by the Board at the end of September 2019.
  • Consistent with the strategy paper recommendations, the AI PTF held a formation meeting in September 2019 and was formally chartered.
  • Considering that there were specific technologies in the agent domain that some members would like to work on without addressing the broader scope of AI, the Platform Technical Committee voted at the same meeting to re-charter the Agent PSIG.

Interested Organizations

The purpose of this section is to keep track of organizations that have contacted us, or participated in meetings. This is obviously a list under construction. If needed, we'll make it into a separate page later. We're not showing people's e-mail addresses to avoid getting them spammed. If you wish to contact someone on this list, email the co-chairs.

  • Augmented Reality Enterprise Alliance (AREA) (Christine Perey)
  • Torch.ai (Artem Beer, Jae Cha, Clayton Pummill)
