Corporate.Innovation – 1st place: "Certification of AI"


The prize for innovations created through the power of the crowd was awarded in three categories: Open.Innovation, Innovation.Funding and Corporate.Innovation. Numerous projects from Germany, Austria and Switzerland applied for the coveted trophies. Three per category were awarded prizes.

In the category Corporate.Innovation, TÜV Austria has reached the 1st place with the project "Certification of Artificial Intelligence (AI)".

Through internal crowdsourcing with employees at all of the company's sites, the idea for a new service was born: machine learning (ML) certification to ensure the safety, reliability, and trustworthiness of AI applications.

The implementation to the innovation was carried out in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University Linz and the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH).

The summary of the jury evaluation

The jury evaluations mentioned positive aspects such as the successful integration of crowdsourcing, the economic and social impact, and the relevance of the topic, but concerns were also raised about crowd involvement, transparency, and environmental sustainability.

It was also noted that further results and transparency are needed to better assess the full potential of the projects.

In an interview with isn, Christoph Schwald talks about the 1st place award and where the project stands today:

The crowd powered innovation award is an initiative of the European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) Crowd in Motion and the Fraunhofer-Zentrum für Internationales Management und Wissensökonomie (IMW) in Leipzig, Germany.

Impressions of the award ceremony and the isn celebrates 20 + 2 years event were captured in the highlight video of the event.
