Trustworthy Artificial Intelligence

Protecting And Securing The Future Of AI And Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence aim to resolve economic and social challenges by incorporating innovations and digital transformation into every industry and in all aspects of social life. This changes how businesses operate, impacting the ways nations are governed and how people live. It transforms every sector and are forming entirely new opportunities, e.g. in Industrie 4.0, smart transportation, and smart health, and smart living for example. 

However, with the advance of machine learning techniques, a quick adoption is taking place and AI is becoming more broadly deployed, opening new attack surfaces to modern information systems and infrastructures. New risks emerge with AI transformation, whereby security, privacy and trust becomes one of the basic prerequisites for responsible AI. In this context, it is critical to understand the potential vulnerabilities and threats, as well as to develop security architectures and defensive mechanisms for AI solutions. 

At Fraunhofer Singapore our mission is to strengthen the future by building safe and open AI technology. We believe that resiliency-by-design and technology that protects and validates AI will enable a secure deployment of powerful new AI technology and the protection of related business models. Thus, we are working on the elements for securing and protecting AI technologies and services to help organisations in Singapore thrive in this new cognitive era. Our goal is to provide our clients with AI solutions, consulting and AI engineering services that put in place security, reliability, trust, protection and transparency.
