WasteNet (An AI Platform Trash-Talking Garbage Can) -State Technologies.


Ever wonder a talking garbage can that suggest you separate the trash, just show your trash to the garbage can and it will tell you to separate the wet and dry part of the trash. How easy is that! AI is making inventions interface easy to use. It is hard to find the wet and dry parts of the trash because we use different kinds of trash made from different kinds of materials. This dustbin comes with a full solution to this problem. Hassan Murad and Vivek Vyas have developed the world’s largest garbage dataset and offer an AI-driven trash-sorting technology.

Approx 1 million pictures are made conceivable by the conservative supercomputing of the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 AI module for the detection of the items. This engineer’s startup is based in Vancouver, it uses machine learning and computer vision to see which kind of trash people are holding as they show trash towards the garbage can. This garbage can show visuals and tells people how to separate the waste.

Let’s see what Murad say about their AI Platform Trash-Talking Garbage Can
“Oscar is a grouchy, trash-talking AI. It rewards people with praise if they recycle right and playfully shouts at them for doing it wrong,” said Murad.

For their startup, they choose Nvidia product the story behind choosing Nvidia product is said by Murad. 

The startup’s system needs to work fast. After all, who wants to wait by a garbage bin? Initially, the founders used every possible hardware option on the market for image recognition, said Murad, including Raspberry Pi and Intel’s Movidius.But requiring that people wait for up to six seconds — the result of their early hardware experiments — for where to toss an item just wasn’t an option. Once they moved to NVIDIA GPUs, they were able to get results down to half a second.“Using Jetson TX2, we are able to run AI on the edge and help people change the world in three seconds,”  said Murad.
