Closely integrating human inspectors and AI systems

The AI for Oversight Lab will develop trustworthy and responsible AI-driven methods and applications for the support of governmental inspectors in the oversight domain. Supervision does not mean inspecting everything everywhere continuously; that’s impossible. Choices must be made. The challenge is to inspect precisely where the societal contribution is greatest. How do you achieve a risk-based approach, deploying inspectors as effectively as possible at the right times and places? The use of artificial intelligence (AI) plays a significant role, especially as these become more sophisticated.

The AI for Oversight Lab is a collaboration between Utrecht University, Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT), Netherlands Labour Authority, Inspectorate of Education, Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority, Leiden University, and TNO.
