Innovate UK have funded a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme. The University of York’s Department of Computer Science and Advai are collaborating in a KTP to accelerate the safe adoption of AI across multiple industry sectors. 

The KTP will develop a scalable, automated service platform for testing and assuring AI systems, bridging high-level user requirements and evidence-generating tools, thereby enabling key business decision-makers to trust their autonomous systems in a dynamically evolving harm landscape.
