The citizen science min projects under the name Creek Rákos aim at fostering the ecologic restoration of the Creek Rákos (Rákos-patak) in Budapest. The projects were created with co-creation process with stakeholders and carried out with citizens even in the COVID-19 period. The projects range from water quality monitoring to species observation, and naturalness assessment of the riparian areas.
The following scores were calculated using a statistically-driven machine-learning approach, a type of AI that learns to perform a task by analysing patterns in data. This is an experimental approach to citizen-science impact assessment, and the exact reasoning behind the scores is not explainable. The scores represent a best guess of the impact the project is having in each domain. Scores are recalculated and updated when “View impact report” is clicked.
