World Cleanup AI
Let's Do It Foundation (LDIF) is working on building an AI solution capable of detecting trash in images and videos. Overview of the project is here https://opendata.letsdoitworld.org/#/ai
The solution was build using Mask R-CNN and trained on dataset consisting of almost 1400 crowd sourced images containing trash. Ideally we would end up with a computer vision algorithm that could detect trash from any picture or video that has a geotag attached to it.
Currently LDIF AI team is consisting of 7 people but we are always looking for more data scientists to help out as much as they can. All of the software that we create will be open source and might have other applications as well. Since our datasets are currently pretty small our main challenge is to create an algorithm that can be trained with the least amount of training data.
