This is the public page of the Visual Object and Scene Description (MPAI-OSD) standard project.

The current goal of the project is to collect Use Cases sharing the goal of describing visual objects and, in some cases, locate them in the space.

By scene description we mean the usual description of objects and their attributes in a scene and the semantic description of the objects.

Below are some of use cases in need of  Visual Object and Scene Description.

New use cases are constantly identified that require new AIMs falling in the MPAI-OSD scope.

2.1 Audio Tape Irregularity
2.1.1 MPAI-CAE-ARP: Audio Recording Preservation
2.2 Identify object in a human’s hand
2.2.1 MPAI-MMC-MQA: Multimodal Question Answering.
