Korea has submitted proposals to an international meeting on artificial intelligence standardization.

The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy announced on Oct. 13 that it sent a delegation of nine experts to the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC42 meeting in Tokyo that took place from Oct. 7 to 11.

At the conference, the delegation proposed a standard on AI-related big data reference architectures required for data-heavy industries such as smart manufacturing, autonomous driving and bio-health. In addition, the delegation proposed an expansion of the scope of standardization of the Big Data Working Group to the data and big data ecosystem in that the existing working group, which is limited to big data, is not suitable for standardization activities considering AI data generated in various industries and related quality control and utilization services.

In this context, the delegation is going to propose South Korea’s AI data framework technology as a new project with the United States before the next general meeting.

Also, the delegation proposed the establishment of an advisory group to facilitate AI service standardization. The matter will be determined at the next meeting in France, which is scheduled for April next year, after expert opinions are gathered.
