As technology is evolving quickly so is the need for data collection in the plastic waste industry. As a team we discovered those datasets don't exist for identification, so in order to create this dataset we are going to have our community engaged in the research by simply asking them to click a picture on our app and submit it.
The submitted picture will then be processed and sent along with the rules and examples to the AWS sagemaker ground truth, where the data will be labelled.
We will use AWS lambda to create the labelling jobs for the AWS sagemaker labeler and will also use it to generate data tables using the output from sagemaker.
This data tables will then be pushed to our output bucket which will be provided to the Scientists.
Plastics contaminate Australia’s lands and seas, and challenge our industries, communities and decision makers with an exponentially growing problem. How might we enable and empower Australians to help de-plasticise our country and report plastic waste in our environment for a healthier future.
The new restrictions on movement in Melbourne have caused increased stress for Victorians. How can we use currently available datasets to show our fellow Australians what is already available for their quality of life within their 5km radius?
