Swiss AI Award 2022 goes to LatticeFlow

Out of more than 170 Swiss AI companies, LatticeFlow stood out with its solution – the world’s first system enabling AI teams to build and deploy robust AI models. The award reflects the progress LatticeFlow has made in the last 12 months.

The AI revolution, projected to deliver $16 trillion to the global economy this decade, is blocked by the ability of AI teams to deliver robust and trustworthy AI models. Without such models, AI systems make wrong decisions in production, resulting in misdiagnosed cancer patients, fatalities in car accidents, and more.

ETH spin-off LatticeFlow is a pioneer in robust AI, having built the world’s first systems for reasoning about deep learning models, outperforming MIT, Berkeley, and Stanford at friendly competitions on robust AI. Based on this technology, LatticeFlow offers the world’s first platform that enables ML teams to automatically diagnose datasets and models, helping them find and fix critical model blind spots and data issues. ML teams can deliver robust AI solutions and accelerate AI adoption globally across various use cases and industries.

“LatticeFlow’s vision is to enable companies to deliver safe, robust, and trustworthy AI solutions to production. This is the most pressing and important problem we need to solve to unblock the AI revolution and enable widespread adoption of AI,” said LatticeFlow’s CEO and Co-founder Petar Tsankov.

The jury of the SwissAI award was impressed by LatticeFlow and selected it as the winner of this year’s competition. Held within the framework of the AiCon Festival, the Swiss AI Award honours the most promising and innovative AI start-ups across Switzerland. Magnes AG and Embotech came out as runner-ups in the competition.

“I am truly impressed by the diligent, in-depth review process led by pioneer Pascal Kaufmann and his team. The jury investigated the technology we are building, how it compares to alternative solutions, and what real-world impact and value can it deliver on the global AI scene over the years”, said Tsankov.

The Swiss AI Award was funded by the Venture competition run by ETH Zurich, the ZKB Pionierpreis, the Digital Economy Award, the Swiss ICT Award, the Swiss ICT Investor Club (SICTIC), and other renowned foundations and organizations across Switzerland.

Besides the Swiss AI Award, LatticeFlow was mentioned on the prestigious CB Insights AI100 List of Most Innovative AI companies in the world and the company won a US Army Global AI Award in 2021.
