Amai! Co-creating AI-based solutions for societal challenges

The project “amai!” (“Oh my” in Flemish) implements citizen science methods to co-develop
solutions using artificial intelligence (AI) for societal challenges. The project looks for AI
solutions in the field of mobility, climate, health, and work, and with the overarching theme of
digital inclusion. Citizens and citizen organisations are included in the entire development process
of the AI solutions, from sharing their initial ideas and co-defining solutions, to selecting proposals
to receive funding to implement the solution, and involvement in the training of the AI solutions.
The target audience is people not primarily interested in AI, but who are interested in solving
societal issues. Citizens are also invited to take part in other activities, such as using creative AI
tools and playing the amai! card game. This contribution gives an overview of the approach of
amai! and touches upon valuable discussions on this approach during the poster session of the
Engaging Citizen Science Conference 2022 in Aarhus, Denmark.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
