Garbage sorting App using machine learning & location to sort it into the right bin.
4 individuals with different fields of study whom never met collaborating
A product that is easily accessible to users that not only sorts garbage into the correct bin but also educates and motivates them to maintain this habit. In addition, to being adoptable in many different settings and for other businesses.
For the purpose of the hackathon, we are targeting young adults to adults whom are already consistently have their phones on them.
Proof of concept. Machine learning should be able to detect the difference between cardboard and garbage. The main and camera page at a minumium must be coded. Presenting for 3 and thirty seconds and leaving the rest for questions for presentation.
The platform we decided on would be mobile. A mobile app that sorts garbage with a click of a button.
It's quick, adoptable & accessible
because society has integrated phones in their daily life.
The second concept, was having a device in the garbage bin itself to sort out the gabrage. However, an mobile app, relays less on companies or locations to implement in each garbage bin (which I assume would be more difficult to push for this change and costly).
