The Institute for AI Safety and Security provides research and development services in the field of AI-related methods, processes, algorithms and execution environments. The focus is on ensuring safety and security for AI-based solutions in ambitious application classes. “Safety and security by design” is a central aspect in this context, since it directly supports future requirements of safety-critical applications that are based on AI or integrate AI-based components.
DLR’s research and development activities, which are focusing on aeronautics, space, energy and transport, as well as the extensive research infrastructure provide an ideal framework for both basic and applied research in the field of AI.
The AI Institute contributes to a unique constellation for ambitious interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research at the DLR. A wide range of competencies from various scientific disciplines and in-depth domain and application knowledge are integrated with basic and applied research activities in the field of AI. AI is explicitly promoted with two goals: scientific progress and high practical relevance of the results and insights.
The research and development activities of the Institute are flanked by an AI-related network activity contributing to the subjects of ethics, law and society.
With its various activities, the Institute for AI Safety and Security supports a responsible introduction and use of AI in practice-relevant applications with high requirements in the areas of safety and security.
The Institute for AI Safety and Security is located at two DLR sites in Germany: Sankt Augustin in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and in the city of Ulm in the state of Baden-Württemberg.
