Initiation of further standardization activities

In the last two weeks Fraunhofer FOKUS and the German IML4E consortium have initiated further activities with regard to the exploitation of IML4E results in standardization. In a further meeting with selected experts of the working group DIN/DKE NA 043-01-42 - Artificial Intelligence the exchange between the German project consortium and the DIN working group was further extended. Participants from Siemens, Software AG, Spicetech and Fraunhofer FOKUS presented their research ideas and first results. In return, the experts from the DIN working group presented ongoing standardization activities. Together, they identified overlaps in topics such as data preparation and quality, testing and certification, which provide opportunities for ongoing collaboration. In addition, project coordinator Jürgen Großmann met with testing and quality assurance experts from ETSI MTS. This meeting also identified opportunities for collaboration specifically on the topics of MLOPS and testing of AI. In further discussions, concrete work items are to be determined and backed up with time schedules. Finally, Fraunhofer FOKUS participated today in the kick-off meeting DIN NRM "WG Auftakt". The meeting was the kick-off meeting for a series of further activities with the aim of describing standardization and certification activities for the next years in Germany.
