Responsible AI

GDPR compliant, governed by responsible values

Our solutions are defined with the principle of privacy by design and along with stringent policies and oversight we meet and exceed the requirements of the GDPR. However, we view compliance not as an endpoint but as a foundation upon which we build. Our work is directed by a set of deeply held responsible values, extending our commitment to privacy, security, and ethical considerations beyond the regulatory baseline.
We are always in close contact with the users of our products by means of structured surveys or interviews to assess their wishes. We also contribute to societal relevant projects, which helps participants become aware of the kind of data technology can gather from them.

Human-centric

We design technology that works for people, not against them
People with a darker skin color are underrepresented in many datasets, which often leads to lower classification performance. We try to mitigate this by balancing the composition of our training data and continuously testing our software against benchmark datasets (e.g. Gender Shades). This way we strive to have the same high level of accuracy for different groups of people.

Fair

Our algorithms are fair with minimal bias​
We incorporate a Privacy by Design approach in our products and we always respect participants' privacy in the datasets we use. For example, in FaceReader Online, our clients sign a processing agreement and participants are required to give informed consent before participating. Additionally, we have the option not to store video recordings, but only anonymous metadata.

Privacy friendly

Privacy protection is embedded in the design of our technology​
Our algorithms are not a black box and we have tools and documentation in place to explain our results to our users. As an R&D company, we frequently publish about our new technology, providing transparency into the functioning of our algorithms.

Transparent

Our algorithms and motives are overtly explainable​
We have security protocols in place to make sure our stakeholders' data is safe with us. For example, all communications with our database servers happen through an encrypted connection.

Secure

We safeguard all data entrusted with us​
Our technology does well in quality assessment tests (e.g. Stockli et al, 2017). We spend a lot of effort in updating our algorithms and label new developments that are not completely validated yet as experimental.

Competent

We design technology according to up-to-date standards​
