Research programme “Trustworthy AI for instant AML Due Diligence”

The ABBL, its Foundation and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) jointly initiated a research programme, “Trustworthy AI for instant AML Due Diligence”, in order to develop tech solutions for the mutual benefit of the ABBL, its members and the SnT.
