Safe perception AI by detection of unknown Unknowns

Deep learning AI has triggered the first revolution in autonomous driving. The breakthrough on the mass market is currently prevented by the fact that this technology is inherently uncertain. Modern deep learning models hit a reliability limit of about 95 percent because of the unknowns. Given an unknown input, the output of a deep learning model is undefined. We have developed a very efficient new methodology to detect the unknowns based on uncertainty in real-time. With our approach, we can develop safety proofs and enable certification/homologation of autonomous vehicles without driving billions of kilometers.
