“Citizen Science and Artificial Intelligence Technologies” was an online webinar that aimed to bring together the power of citizen participation and the potential of emerging technologies.

In this era of rapid technological advancements, citizen science provides a unique opportunity to engage individuals from diverse backgrounds in scientific research and innovation. By involving citizens in data collection, analysis, and problem-solving, we can tap into the collective intelligence of the crowd, accelerating scientific discovery and fostering a deeper understanding of our world.

Interdisciplinarity in these areas unlocks new possibilities for addressing complex challenges in areas like the labour market, environmental conservation, public health, and urban planning. This collaboration enables harnessing the power of technology to amplify the impact of citizen-driven initiatives, facilitating real-time data collection and data sharing. At the same time, practices and methodologies inspired by citizen science can be used to consult and engage users and stakeholders in AI research and make sure computer scientists get input and feedback that contribute to increasing the inclusiveness and trustworthiness of the systems they design.

This webinar was a combined effort of the TIME4CS and BIAS projects, bringing together the Citizen Science Helix and the Trustworthy AI Helix communities.
