Call for Participation: IEEE P2416™

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the working group for IEEE P2416™, Standard for Power Modeling to Enable System-Level Analysis.

Why Get Involved?

This standard describes a parameterized and abstracted power model enabling system, software, and hardware intellectual property (IP)-centric power analysis and optimization. It defines concepts for the development of parameterized, accurate, efficient, and complete power models for systems and hardware IP blocks usable for system power analysis and optimization. These concepts include, but are not limited to, process, voltage, and temperature (PVT) independence; power and thermal management interface; and workload and architecture parameterization.

This standard supports the ability to develop accurate, efficient, and interoperable power models for complex designs, to be used with a variety of commercial products throughout an electronic system design, analysis, and verification flows.

We are requesting participation in the next version of the standard that addresses enhancements to the standard, some of which include efficiency in multi-voltage design handling, analog, and mixed-signal modeling, and efficient interfacing with other standards like 1801.

Call for Participation: IEEE P2304™

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the working group for  IEEE P2304™, Standard for Cloud Computing Shared Function Model.

Why Get Involved?

This standard provides a general shared function model for cloud computing, in order to normalize how functions are shared between cloud service providers (CSPs) and cloud service customers (CSCs). The standard specifies functions ownership from seven aspects for three main cloud service delivery models, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).

The seven aspects of function are as follows: 1) The physical infrastructure function. 2) The virtualization infrastructure function. 3) The operating system function. 4) The network control function. 5) The application function. 6) The data function. 7) The identity and access management function. Each of the seven aspects considers many factors including security, management, etc. In this standard, levels 1 to 4, which are clearly the service provider’s function for IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, are briefly mentioned for the integrity of the model. This standard focuses on levels 5, 6, and 7.

The attributes include but are not limited to the data source, type, ownership, sampling frequency, traceability, privacy attributes for modeling, sampling, shareability, and its use in AI algorithms.

This standard facilitates industrial AI data rationalization towards value creation to establish a common understanding of the AI-relevant data among all stakeholders to accelerate AI solutions and product development and deployment. It will also provide a generic data framework to address common data elements shared across various industrial AI verticals.

Call for Participation: IEEE P7015™

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the working group for  IEEE P7015™, Standard for Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Literacy, Skills, and Readiness.

Why Get Involved?

To coordinate global data and AI literacy-building efforts, this standard establishes an operational framework and associated capabilities for designing policy interventions, tracking their progress, and empirically evaluating their outcomes. The standard includes a common set of definitions, language, and understanding of data and AI literacy, skills, and readiness.

The purpose of the standard is to enable that the respective set of skills and competencies are widely taught as a transdisciplinary competence across all subjects from three perspectives (application-oriented, technical-methodological, and socio-cultural) and can be acquired by all people so that every individual, and our society as a whole, will be enabled to deal with data and AI in a conscious and ethically sound manner. The standard creates a common understanding of data and AI literacy so that it can be systematically included in curricula and educational standards of schools, teacher training, higher education, and further education. Furthermore, the standard serves as a reference for data and AI literacy programs for extracurricular and vocational training, to enable lifelong learning of data and AI literacy. Given that, such a standard can serve as a basis for eventually developing a convergent, coherent data literacy assessment, measurement, and impact evaluation framework for the national, regional, and global levels that can help to fill the empirical evidence gap on outcomes from data literacy interventions and programs.
