How can we ensure and prove that AI modules work as expected in autonomous vehicles? This is what car manufacturers, suppliers, technology companies and research institutes are working on in the KI Absicherung project. On 8 July 2021, PD Dr. Michael Mock from Fraunhofer IAIS and deputy consortium leader as well as scientific project coordinator presented the project approach of KI Absicherung at the Fraunhofer Solution Days 2021.
"Detecting pedestrians alone is not the challenge of the project, but in particular that we can continue to maintain the trust that we normally associate with our vehicles in normal road traffic when we use AI" explained PD Dr. Michael Mock in his presentation "Safe AI in the Automobile". Through the new safeguarding methodology developed by KI Absicherung, the project aims to reach consensus so that AI modules can be demonstrably used safely and reliably in autonomous vehicles.
At this year's Fraunhofer Solution Days, participants were able to learn more about Fraunhofer competences and solutions for more resilience and security as well as the latest findings on Next Generation Computing. The digital event series took place over two days, on 22 June 2021 and 8 July 2021 respectively. The event on 22 June 2021 was themed "Secure Society and Industry", the event on 8 July 2021 was themed "Trusted and Quantum Computing".
