Lakera wins the DEKRA Award 2021 in the category "Startups". The company was selected by the DEKRA jury for the final and won the online voting. Lakera AI from Zurich / Switzerland wants to use a validation platform to ensure that AI is transparent, safe, and trustworthy.
The global safety organization DEKRA, together with WirtschaftsWoche, Germany's leading business magazine, has been organizing the DEKRA Award for many years and honoring pioneering top performance in the service of safety. A top-class jury determined the winners in the traditional categories of "safety on the road", "safety at work" and "safety at home" in 2021 after a year of Corona break.
One innovation at this year's DEKRA Award was the addition of the "Startups" category. Three nominated companies were able to present their innovations online in the form of a three-minute "pitch" in the final round: COMPREDICT for AI-based virtual vehicle sensors, Trucksters for AI-based route optimization in logistics and finally–the eventual winner–Lakera.
Lakera is working on one of the greatest challenges of our time: making sure AI is transparent, safe, and trustworthy. The startup is building a validation platform that puts AI systems through their paces. The platform makes it possible to systematically test under which conditions the AI works, when it fails and creates a risk assessment of the system before it is used. This creates transparency, according to Lakera, and is an important step in solving the much-lamented “black box” problems of AI. Their platform can be used, for example, in robotics, medical technology, Industry 4.0 and the automotive industry.
