What MPAI-AIF is about

Technical Specification: Artificial Intelligence Framework (MPAI-AIF) V2.0 is a foundational MPAI standard on which most MPAI application standards are built. It specifies architecture, interfaces, protocols, and API of a secure environment specially designed for execution of AI-based applications implemented as AI workflows (AIW) of AI modules (AIM). Version 2 extends the capabilities of Version 1 making it easier for AI application developers to support security in their applications.
