How to complete ALTAI

ALTAI is best completed involving a multidisciplinary team of people from within or outside your organisation with specific competences or expertise on each of the 7 requirements and related questions such as:

  • AI designers and AI-developers of the AI system.
  • Data scientists.
  • Procurement officers or specialists.
  • Front-end staff that will use or work with the AI system.
  • Legal/compliance officers.
  • Management.

If you do not know how to address a question and find no useful help on the AI Alliance page, it is advised to seek outside counsel for assistance.

For each question ALTAI provides guidance in the glossary and by referencing to the relevant parts of the Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI and examples in text boxes alongside the questions.

Upon completing ALTAI, the following will be generated:

  • A visualisation of the self-assessed level of adherence of the AI system and it's use with the 7 requirements for Trustworthy AI. These results are based on your organisation's own assessment and are solely meant to help you identify the areas of improvement.
  • Recommendations based on the answers to particular questions.


ALTAI is a self-assessment tool.
