This innovative app provides people with visual impairments the ability to travel safely and independently. With the LiLi app, they can find the safest route between two points in a sustainable way and travel it safely on foot. The app offers useful auditory instructions for recognizable points along the route, making navigation easier.
The Amai! project
Amai! Vlaanderen aims to inform citizens about AI and involve them in the development of new AI applications in Flanders. Amai! does this by bringing together AI experts, domain organizations, and citizens around four themes: climate and the environment, mobility, health, and work. For these themes, three smart AI solutions are being developed based on socially relevant questions. The development of these AI solutions always occurs in consultation with citizens, AI experts, and experts in the respective themes. This year, the project is progressing on three parallel tracks.
And so the Amai! project call was born.
The Amai! voting
Currently, we are participating with the LiLi app in the Amai! project call, where thousands of ideas for socially relevant AI solutions come together.
These ideas serve as a starting point for the project call. Consortia can submit a project proposal to develop an idea or a group of related ideas from one of the clusters. Consortia can apply for a grant of up to 125,000 euros for a maximum period of 24 months.
