Frequently asked questions

Why do we need the AI Verify Foundation?

AI is fast evolving and a game changer, but it comes with risks. As the use of AI becomes more prevalent, it is increasingly important for AI developers and users to show that their AI systems are safe and will not result in unintended bias. To do so, AI testing is key. However, the sciences and technologies for AI testing are nascent and there are significant gaps in AI testing and evaluation. We cannot develop AI testing alone. Industry and research community need to come together and leverage their collective expertise to crowd-in on development efforts.

How is AI Verify designed?
AI Verify consists of a testing framework and a software toolkit.

The framework is aligned with internationally recognised AI ethics principles, guidelines, and frameworks, such as those from the EU, OECD and Singapore. The framework comprises 11 AI ethics principles, namely transparency, explainability, repeatability/reproducibility, safety, security, robustness, fairness (i.e., mitigation of unintended discrimination), data governance, accountability, human agency & oversight, and inclusive growth, societal & environmental well-being.

The framework also contains testable criteria and testing processes for each of the principles. The scope of the testable criteria may overlap and could reinforce concepts that are important in ensuring trustworthy and transparent deployment of AI.

The toolkit is designed to be extensible which provides the ability to test and evaluate AI models from a black-box perspective. It was primarily designed to serve as an audit and testing tool, supporting both third-party independent testing and self-assessment.
