The six dimensions of Trustworthy AI:
The six dimensions of Trustworthy AI have been academically discussed in great detail. By now, companies in the AI industry are acutely aware of factors such as Fairness, Autonomy and Control, Transparency, Privacy, Robustness as well as Safety and Security.
Each dimension has its technical, operational, and legal challenges.
Although all six dimensions of AI need to be assessed based on the individual risk level, some dimensions might play a more significant role than others. Depending on the industry, the use case and the requirements of regulators, clients, and their customers, AI companies need to balance their efforts across the six dimensions for both strategical and economic reasons. Especially in this situation, business leaders need evidence-based criteria, data and best practice experiences to validate and strengthen their decisions.
Better AI scaling decisions with CertAI’s Trustworthy AI Standard across six dimensions
With the Trustworthy AI Standard and its guiding principles, CertAI addresses this imminent need for clarity and transparency of crucial decisions in AI. CertAI offers a reliable and concrete assessment: always business-oriented and implementable, focusing strongly on on risk management and risk mitigation, and all based on an innovative and scientific approach of our research partner Fraunhofer IAIS, Europe’s largest application-oriented research organisation.
CertAI’s offering to AI companies starts where others might stop: We individually assess the current situation and specific risks of companies and their AI applications on six dimensions. This way, companies can measure individual decisions within the six dimensions, and prioritise actions across all six dimensions by value and incurred risks for stakeholders.
The six dimensions of Trustworthy AI – how CertAI adds value
In this dimension, AI companies usually struggle with the assessment of discrimination in their application as there is applied experience missing, especially in the evaluation and prediction of people and their behaviours. Fairness is most difficult to assess due to blurred guidelines. CertAI works closely with specialists in HR and Ethics to ensure we ask the right questions in our assessments around governance, unconscious biases, and transparency issues, so companies can treat applicants fairly when applying for a job, a loan, or an insurance policy.
By getting a full and deep picture of the risks, companies might avoid costly penalties, while gaining transparency to take measured business risks.

Scale AI applications with higher confidence
CertAI’s Trustworthy AI Standard and guiding principles not only enable clients to get a grip on individual risks in all six AI dimensions, but they also make these risks manageable and actionable. This leads to well-informed decisions with higher confidence and increases the quality of discussions with internal and external stakeholders. It also empowers AI companies to take full advantage of their AI, to scale and speed up operations and to gain competitive advantage.
We look forward to discussing your individual situation.
