ANNOUNCING: Intersections of AI and Community Well-being: A Special Issue for International Journal of Community Well-being
Intersections in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Community Well-being is the Journal of Community Well-being's first Special Issue and the world's first collection of academic articles exploring and defining the impact AI has on community well-being. Articles in the special issue address three topics: 1) understanding and measuring the impact of AI on community well-being, 2) engaging communities in the development and deployment of AI and 3) the use of AI to enhance or exacerbate community well-being. Articles in the issue cover topics of family support and mental health care, urban planning and the Sustainable Development Goals, biomimicry, development contracts and recommender systems, as well as systems theory in the context of the development of AI. The intent of the special issue is to inspire and engage community well-being researchers, the AI community and community organizers in taking a systems-based and transdisciplinary approach to understanding and guiding the impact that AI has on our communities, a subject until now rarely considered. The special issue raises important topics and also demonstrates the width and breadth of learning and research that is needed in this newly identified field of AI and community well-being

Our contribution to standardizing well-being for AI
2018-2020, Happiness Alliance's Executive Director Laura Musikanski served as Chair of the Working Group that developed the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Standard 7010–2020 Recommended Practice for Assessing the Impact of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems on Human Well-being. Happiness Alliance board members Bogdana Rakova played an active role in the Working Group.
This standard is the first to present a methodology for designing, providing and managing AI that positively impacts human well-being.
Read about it, and see the indicators upon which it is based.

Well-being is the continuous and sustainable physical, mental, and social flourishing of individuals, communities and populations where their economic needs are cared for within a thriving ecological environment.
What we envision is what we realize.
What we measure is what we care about.
