Artificial intelligence put to the test

The world's first machine learning certification scheme

TRUSTED AI by TÜV AUSTRIA is the world's first Machine Learning (ML) certification scheme. We have deliberately chosen to start certification with supervised learning models, as these are already used in many technological applications in industry. They are characterized by clearly defined problem definitions and allow a formal interpretation and validation.

The certificate TRUSTED AI by TÜV AUSTRIA confirms robustness, safety and suitability of a certified AI application for defined purposes and fields of application. Currently, our certification is still limited to supervised learning models, other ML models will follow successively.


Security for developers and operators

TRUSTED AI by TÜV AUSTRIA independently confirms to AI application developers the correctness and suitability of their AI application for the specified purposes.

Independent certification by TÜV AUSTRIA provides developers and users of AI application, assurance about the quality, security and suitability of the certifies application. This also offers further assurance to investors, for example when selecting suitable development partners and/or applications.

      • Process description
      • AI model specifications
      • Data processing
    • Interviews
      • Implementation documented process
  • Technical inspection

    • Machine Learning Artifacts
      • Test reports
      • Monitoring information
      • Measurement results
    • Protection against tampering
  • Certificate
