Certified AI

Certification of standard AI applications

The aim of the KI.NRW flagship project is to develop and standardize test criteria, methods, and tools for AI systems in order to enable a comparable evaluation of AI systems. Verifiability of technically assured properties is expected to/should increase the confidence of users and consumers in AI technologies.

The focus is in particular on the development of safeguarding methods and testing tools as well as the transfer of results into concrete economic offers. A holistic project approach includes the elaboration and development of testing tools and the development of a testing framework to ensure the comparability of tests of different AI applications, as well as the consideration of legal, philosophical/ethical and economic aspects and issues.

Together with project partners, DIN organizes so-called user circles to discuss project results with a broad range of stakeholders and to validate them based on use cases. Relevant project results will be transferred to standardization with the aim of introducing them into suitable activities at European and international level.
