How to participate
How can you get involved?
Standardization is essential to promote trust in and the acceptance of artificial intelligence. There are many ways in which you can participate. At DIN you can participate in developing standards and specifications. And getting involved is worth it: Companies and organizations can bring their own interests into the standardization process and thus actively shape the future of their sector.
A DIN SPEC (DIN Specification) is the fastest way to take an innovative idea and establish it on the market. In a small, temporary workshop of experts, a specification can be developed within a few months. DIN SPECs are trusted strategic instruments for quickly and easily establishing and disseminating innovative solutions on the market.
Participate in standardization
DIN Standards are the results of work at national, European and/or international level. Standards are developed in committees at DIN, at the European standards organization CEN/CENELEC or at the international standards organization ISO/IEC according to defined principles, procedural rules and rules of presentation. All stakeholders can participate in this work, including manufacturers, consumers, businesses, academic institutes, research institutes, public authorities and testing bodies.
Setting the timetable
DIN and DKE have published a standardization roadmap for artificial intelligence in a joint project with the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK). The first edition of the roadmap was presented at the German government's Digital Summit at the end of 2020. The 1st edition was continued and updated in 2022. The second edition of the German Standardization Roadmap Artificial Intelligence provides an expanded and updated analysis of the current state of and need for international standards and specifications for AI, with 3 new key topics. Interested parties from industry, science, the public sector and civil society are invited to register via the collaboration platform DIN.ONE to help implement the results and actively support the upcoming standardization work.
