The foundation of the AI Test and Qualification Hub TRUSTIFAI marked a significant step in Upper Austria´s economy and innovation strategy, Governor Mag. Thomas Stelzer stated at a special press conference. Stelzer emphasized the outstanding importance of artificial intelligence (AI) as a central key technology. The cooperation between TÜV AUSTRIA and the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH) is groundbreaking:  “TRUSTIFAI serves to test and certify AI applications. An independent seal of quality according to the highest standards creates trust in the safe and reliable application of AI, which in turn further drives the growth of the AI market,” said Stelzer.

Economic Affairs and Research Provincial Councillor Markus Achleitner underscored that Upper Austria is pursuing the goal of becoming a model region for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence by 2030. “For companies, AI offers enormous potential. Certification builds trust and gain competitive advantage,” Achleitner said.

Wirtschafts- und Forschungs-Landesrat Markus Achleitner betonte, dass Oberösterreich das Ziel verfolgt, bis 2030 zur Modellregion für Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence zu werden. „Für Unternehmen bietet KI ein enormes Potenzial. Die Zertifizierung ist eine zentrale Möglichkeit, Vertrauen zu schaffen und Wettbewerbsvorteile zu erlangen“, sagte Achleitner.

The CEOs of TÜV AUSTRIA and the Software Competence Center Hagenberg, Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Stefan Haas and Dipl.-Umweltwiss. Mag. Markus Manz elaborated how TRUSTIFAI will take a leading position in the field of AI testing and certification in Europe. In doing so, TRUSTIFAI relies on scientifically sound testing methods and transparency to strengthen trust in the technology and create a win-win situation for companies and society.

Since 2020, TÜV AUSTRIA, the ML Institute at JKU and SCCH have been working together to translate the scientific know-how of basic ML research into methods for quality testing and certification. “The methodology includes valid statistical testing of the ML models used, which will now be made available to the AI community in Austria and Europe through TRUSTIFAI,” said Dipl.- Ing. Dr. Bernhard Nessler, Research Manager Deep Learning and Certification at SCCH.

TÜV AUSTRIA has already completed successful AI certification projects in the healthcare, industrial AI applications and automotive sectors. The goal is to establish TRUSTIFAI as a leading AI testing and qualification hub with global reach and international growth. TRUSTIFAI already has all the necessary skills and testing competencies to support an Austrian AI authority in the process of being established and ensures that sufficient competence and capacity is available to certify AI applications with regards to the EU AI Act. “The current testing catalog includes about 300 testing criteria covering functional requirements, secure development, ethics and data protection and will be continuously developed”, says Dipl.-Ök. Thomas Doms, Managing Director, TRUSTIFAI.

The Russian war of aggression has still not come to an end, we are witnesses to Israel’s fight against Hamas terror. Natural disasters, environmental pollution and much more cast a dim outlook on the future. So why are we actually optimistic about 2024?
