Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks. — Stephen Hawking

As the EU AI Act introduces a comprehensive regulatory framework for AI systems, ensuring compliance has become a critical concern for businesses deploying AI technologies. SplxAI provides essential tools and services to help companies meet these new regulatory requirements efficiently and effectively.

Overview of the EU AI Act

The EU AI Act categorizes AI systems based on their risk levels: unacceptable AI practices, high-risk AI systems, and low or minimal systems. High-risk AI systems, in particular, must adhere to strict requirements covering risk management, data governance, transparency, and human oversight to gain access to the EU market. The regulation also mandates continuous monitoring and compliance with EU standards for all AI systems​​.

EU AI Act Key Aspects

Key Aspects Covered by SplxAI’s Probe

SplxAI offers Probe, an automated and continuous Pen-testing as a Service (PTaaS) tool that evaluates AI applications and chatbots against regulatory benchmarks, ensuring robust risk assessment and mitigation strategies are in place.


1. Risk Management and Assessment

  • Advanced Risk Assessment: Probe’s risk assessment and management strategies align with the EU AI Act’s emphasis on thorough risk management for high-risk AI systems, as well as the standards set by ISO/IEC 42001, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, the OWASP Top 10 for LLM Apps, and MITRE ATLAS.

AI Security Framework
  • Transparency and Documentation: The platform ensures that all documentation related to AI compliance is comprehensive and up-to-date, which is crucial for meeting the Act’s transparency requirements​​.


2. Data Governance

  • Data Quality and Integrity: SplxAI’s Probe tests the integrity and quality of data used in AI applications and chatbots, addressing the Act’s requirements for reliable and ethically sourced data.

  • GDPR Compliance: By aligning with GDPR, Probe helps businesses protect personal data, streamlining compliance with both the AI Act and data protection regulations.


3. Transparency and Accountability

  • Explainability and Reporting: Probe enhances the explainability of AI models and applications by providing detailed reports on decision-making processes, identifying weaknesses and anomalies, and offering comprehensive descriptions of these issues. This is essential for maintaining accountability and transparency, as required by the EU AI Act.


4. Human Oversight and Control

  • Human-in-the-Loop (HITL): Probe integrates HITL features, allowing human supervisors to monitor AI operations and intervene when necessary. This supports the EU AI Act’s requirement for human oversight in high-risk AI applications​​.


5. Continuous Monitoring and Auditing

  • Post-Market Surveillance: Probe provides continuous monitoring and auditing services, ensuring ongoing compliance with the EU AI Act. This includes regular updates and alerts about regulatory changes, helping businesses stay compliant.

  • Incident Management: The platform includes incident management suggestions to address and rectify any compliance issues swiftly, reducing potential regulatory risks​​.

Specific Provisions Addressed by Probe PTaaS

  • Unacceptable AI Practices: Probe assists organizations in ensuring that their AI systems don’t engage in manipulative techniques or exploit vulnerabilities, in line with the prohibitions set by the EU AI Act​​.

  • High Risk AI Systems: By providing tools for thorough conformity assessment and compliance with EU standards, Probe helps businesses meet the requirements for high-risk AI systems, covering risk management, technical robustness, and cybersecurity measures​ ​.

  • Transparency for Low or Minimal Risk AI Systems: Probe ensures that AI systems with limited risks, such as chatbots, comply with the Act’s transparency requirements​​.

EU AI Risk Categorization

Conversational AI and the EU AI Act

Conversational AI systems, such as chatbots, often fall under the ‘limited risk’ category. The EU AI Act mandates that these systems must inform users that they are interacting with an AI unless it is already apparent from the context. This transparency requirement ensures users understand they are not conversing with a human, enabling appropriate responses and adaptations. Furthermore, realistic AI-generated content, like deepfakes, must be clearly marked as artificial.

In sensitive sectors like healthcare, conversational AI may be classified as ‘high risk’, necessitating stringent measures including comprehensive risk management, data quality assurance, and human oversight to prevent misuse, ensure accuracy, and protect user data.

AppSec and AppSecOps Integration

Ensuring compliance with the EU AI Act also requires a robust approach to application security (AppSec). SplxAI’s Probe incorporates AppSec principles to enhance the security posture of AI applications and chatbots. Additionally, integrating AppSecOps practices ensures that security is embedded throughout the development lifecycle, providing continuous security assessment and improvement. For a comprehensive checklist on securing your AI application, refer to our previous blog “AI Security Checklist: Don’t let your AI go rogue”.
