Making critical autonomous AI-based systems safe

Making critical autonomous AI-based systems safe


To improve the explainability and traceability of DL components

To provide clear safety patterns for the incremental adoption of DL software in Critical Autonomous AI-based Systems (CAIS)

To integrate the SAFEXPLAIN libraries with an industrial system-testing toolset

To create architectures of DL components with quantifiable and controllable confidence, and that have the ability to identify when predictions should not be released based on applicability’s scope or security concerns

To design, implement, or update selected representative DL software libraries according to safety patterns and safety lifecycle considerations, meeting specific performance requirements on  relevant platforms

Deep Learning (DL) techniques are key for most future advanced
software functions in Critical Autonomous AI-based Systems (CAIS) in
cars, trains and satellites. Hence, those CAIS industries depend on their
ability to design, implement, qualify, and certify DL-based software
products under bounded effort/cost

Case studies

Railway: This case studies the viability of a safety architectural pattern for the completely autonomous operation of trains (Automatic Train Operation, ATO) using intelligent Deep Learning (DL)-based solutions.

Space: This case employs state-of-the-art mission autonomy and artificial intelligence technologies to enable fully autonomous operations during space missions. These technologies are developed through high safety-critical scenarios.

Automotive: This case develops advanced methods and procedures that enable self-driving cars to accurately detect road users, estimate their distance from the vehicle, and predict their trajectories while adhering to both safety and explainability requirements.

Celebrating Women and Girls in Science Day with advice for young scientists

Celebrating Women and Girls in Science Day with advice for young scientists

We´re celebraiting the 9th Anniversary of #FEBRUARY11 Global Movement with a look into the women in science and technology in the project.

The SAFEXPLAIN projects counts with the participation of many women in science who are driving the project´s success. See what advice they have for young scientists.

Integrating AI into Functional Safety Management  

Integrating AI into Functional Safety Management  

SAFEXPLAIN is developing an AI-Functional Safety Management methodology that guides the development process, maps the traditional lifecycle of safety-critical systems with the AI lifecycle, and addreses their interactions. AI-FSM extends widely adopted FSM methodologies that stem from functional safety standards to the the specific needs of Deep Learning architecture specifications, data, learning, and inference management, as well as appropriate testing steps. The SAFEXPLAIN-developed AI-FSM considers recommendations from IEC 61508 [5], EASA [6], ISO/IEC 5460 [3], AMLAS [7] and ASPICE 4.0 [8], among others.

SAFEXPLAIN SILVER SPONSOR of the AI, Data and Robotics Forum

The SAFEXPLAIN project will participate in the 2023 AI, Data, Robotics Forum as a silver sponsor. Don´t miss the project´s newest roll-up and presentation to AI experts.  This two-day forum is the place to be to discuss pertinent challenges and strategic opportunities...
