Trustworthy AI

The key cornerstones of trustworthy AI are stability & security, transparency, fairness, privacy, accountability, social and environmental benefits, and the design of human-machine communication. AI & Data Science can contribute decisively to breakthrough innovation and progress – but only if they are designed to be trustworthy.
Stability & Safety

We maximize technical stability and data security by increasing the expertise that an AI considers in its decision-making processes through hybrid modeling and other theory-inspired approaches.


Transparency creates trust. However, AI applications are based on complex algorithms, which naturally makes them difficult to understand. Where it is crucial, we therefore incorporate elements of Explainable AI into the applications so that users can see and understand decision-making processes.


Diversity, non-discrimination, and fairness are crucial characteristics for AI applications to be accepted in a social context. We identify biases in algorithms and ensure that they do not play a role in decision-making.

Data security

Data security and data governance are our top priority. Our experts are among the best in the world in long-term secure (quantum computer safe) cryptographic processes. Only with absolutely secure data can we implement groundbreaking innovations in companies.

Accountability & Environmental Wellbeing

To ensure responsibility and accountability in AI applications, certifications will increasingly emerge in the coming years. Through our close networking with science and EU initiatives and bodies, we also ensure for our customers that AI applications meet the highest standards.

social & environmental benefits

Not only in the manufacturing industry, but also in the most important and for the future crucial social fields such as medicine, pharmacy and health, environment & sustainability, the use of the potential of data can become a “game changer”.

Human AI Interaction

In order for users to trust AI, human agency and human oversight must be available at all times. We work with methods of human-machine communication and immersive analytics so that users can maintain an overview and switch between the physical and digital worlds.
