Ecoembes through its innovation center The Circular Lab is working to improve the environmental consciousness and values in our society. Their core is, to promote recycling and change customers behaviors. One of the lines of work includes the process of classification, processing and recycling of household packaged products.
We joined the project last summer and we are developing an intuitive app that allows citizens to know how to recycle easily.
Applying artificial intelligence, we’re creating an innovative way to recycle with a powerful social impact.
Applying the latest techniques in deep learning and trough the Tensorflow framework, we managed to set up a Convolutional Neural Network which, thanks to the power of transfer learning and the computational capability of the newest NVIDIA GPUs, learned to discriminate between different kinds of waste with an accuracy near to 98%.
