MPEG 123, Ljubljana

MPEG 123 LjubljanaZetacast participated in the 123rd meeting of MPEG, which was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 16 to 20 July 2018.

At this meeting, MPEG has issued a Call for Evidence for compression technology for neural networks. The compression technology will be evaluated in terms of compression efficiency, runtime and memory consumption. Artificial neural networks have already been adopted for a broad range of tasks in multimedia analysis and processing, media coding, data analytics, translation and many other fields. Their recent success is based on the feasibility of processing much larger and more complex neural networks than was possible in the past, and the availability of large-scale training data sets.
