This alliance aims to validate high-quality, fit-for-size methods and tools to enable AI providers to build reliable and ultimately compliant AI-solutions. 

Philipp Morf, Head of Data & AI in Austria, Germany and Switzerland at Zühlke, emphasised the importance of reliable and secure AI solutions, especially as they move beyond the prototype or proof of concept stage. ‘With the advent of the EU AI Act, ensuring the safety and reliability of AI solutions has become even more critical. Our cooperation with TÜV Süd gives us more capacities to support clients in developing and deploying AI responsibly, particularly in highly regulated industries’.

Furthermore, Morf announced plans to collaborate with TÜV Süd on developing new offerings in the areas of Responsible AI and AI Governance: ‘We’re seeing significant demand across various sectors for these services. TÜV Süd's established standards, quality requirements, and regulatory know-how will enhance our capabilities, allowing us to better meet this demand’.

Philippe Coution, Business Development Lead AI Quality at TÜV Süd, supports the cooperation: ‘Zühlke provides us with more opportunities to test our processes and standards in a broader range of scenarios. Expanding our knowledge of AI applications across diverse industries helps us optimise our framework for more effective solutions. This in turn increases the quality and safety of AI applications, which benefits both companies and users’. Coution also expects the cooperation to enhance the TÜV Süd offering in the area of risk management for AI. 

The cooperation between TÜV Süd and Zühlke is open-ended, with several joint customer projects already underway.
