The AI HLEG translated these requirements into a detailed Assessment List, taking into account feedback from a six month long piloting process within the European AI community.
Through the Assessment List for Trustworthy AI (ALTAI), AI principles are translated into an accessible and dynamic checklist that guides developers and deployers of AI in implementing such principles in practice. ALTAI will help to ensure that users benefit from AI without being exposed to unnecessary risks by indicating a set of concrete steps for self-assessment.
ALTAI is best completed involving a multidisciplinary team of people from within or outside your organisation with specific competences or expertise on each of the 7 requirements and related questions such as:
AI designers and AI-developers of the AI system.
Procurement officers or specialists.
Front-end staff that will use or work with the AI system.
For each question ALTAI provides guidance in the glossary and by referencing to the relevant parts of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI and examples in text boxes alongside the questions.
Upon completing ALTAI, the following will be generated:
A visualisation of the self-assessed level of adherence of the AI system and it's use with the 7 requirements for Trustworthy AI. These results are based on your organisation's own assessment and are solely meant to help you identify the areas of improvement.
Recommendations based on the answers to particular questions.
