Quality management for AI

Our contribution to high-quality AI - Die Informatik Aktuell reports

Our article offers best practices from the field for quality assurance in AI models during development and operation, providing practitioners and decision makers with options for quality assurance that go beyond the general quality assurance requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 12207.
