CertAI – The makers of the Trustworthy AI seals
Trustworthy AI understood, actioned and recognized.
CertAI is your partner for Trustworthy AI. We developed a concrete Trustworthy AI Standard and deliver recognized quality seals to our clients upon their completion of our assessment.
CertAI is 100% owned by Munich Re, a leading global re-insurance company. We combined Munich Re’s expertise in risk assessment with the leading AI knowledge of scientists at Fraunhofer IAIS to develop our Trustworthy AI standard. Grounded in science, but made actionable for business, our service enables companies to understand and mitigate the risk in their AI applications. Our third partner CertX, a Swiss best-in-class auditing company, gave important input to our specialized process for standardized auditing.
Digitalization also changes the risk landscape. New types of risks require innovative solutions – also for the field of artificial intelligence. Munich Re invested early on in building up the relevant know-how and is continuously opening up new digital business areas for the benefit of clients. With CertAI, we are taking the next step and strengthen our position as a reliable partner for business in the digital world.
As part of the largest organization for application-oriented research in Europe, the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) based in Sankt Augustin near Bonn is one of the leading scientific institutes in the fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data in Germany and Europe.
Since 2014, Fraunhofer IAIS has been coordinating the Fraunhofer Big Data and Artificial Intelligence Alliance, which bundles the cross-sector expertise of more than 30 Fraunhofer Institutes in the fields of big data and artificial intelligence. Together with the University of Bonn, TU Dortmund, and Fraunhofer IML, Fraunhofer IAIS is a leading partner of the Competence Center Machine Learning Rhine-Ruhr (ML2R) - one of the nationwide nodes for cutting-edge research and transfer in machine learning. Fraunhofer IAIS is in the heart of a strong network in Trustworthy AI. Together with its partners the German Institute for Standardization (DIN) and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), it leads CERTIFIED KI, the first project operationalizing the results of the Standardization Roadmap AI . Furthermore, its scientists have made numerous contributions to pioneering publications in the fields of Trustworthy AI published by the High-Level Expert Group on AI, the Standardization Roadmap AI and Germany's Platform for Artificial Intelligence, to name some examples. In 2021 Fraunhofer IAIS published one of the leading guidelines to operationalize AI trustworthiness.
Munich Re actively supports the adaptation of Trustworthy AI. With the commitment to CertAI and our expertise in AI risk management, we are therefore enabling the fast and effective implementation of Trustworthy AI across many industries.
