NATO to develop AI certification standard

NATO’s Data and Artificial Intelligence Review Board (DARB) has started working on an artificial intelligence (AI) certification standard. The standard – which will also be applicable to data exploitation – is meant to assist industries and institutions across the alliance to ensure that AI and data projects are compliant with international law and with NATO’s norms and values.

The overall goal is to translate NATO’s 2021 Principles of Responsible Use of AI into ‘concrete checks and balances, notably in terms of governability, traceability, and reusability’. The standard, to be finalised by the end of the 2023, is expected to help build trust among the innovation community, operational end users, and the general public.
