Fighting Illegal Dumping: Identifying Dumpsites To Contribute to a Cleaner World
In this two-month Omdena Challenge, a global team of up to 50 changemakers will collaborate to build AI models that help to understand and avoid illegal dumpsites. The challenge partner TrashOut is an environmental project which aims to map all illegal dumps around the world and help citizens recycle waste accordingly.
Using Machine Learning to Predict Deforestation
The project partner, Moja Global, provides tools for estimating emissions and removals of greenhouse gases from the land sector. Agriculture, deforestation, and other types of land use account for 23% of global greenhouse gas emissions. To reduce these emissions, they need to be quantified accurately.
This project proposes to develop an algorithm that will predict the level of deforestation based on the project area, sub-national administrative area, and the whole country.
Locating products at disposal sites to extract consumer data
Getting data from trash helps sales and improves the planet. Dumpsites are “one-stop shops” where everything we buy ends at. Currently, there are no companies capturing data to increase sales and user experience.
For example, AI technology could locate bottles of shampoo being dumped in some areas. The local supermarket does not currently sell this kind of shampoo, which means lost revenue potential. The project owner and startup Tekntrash is led by an experienced team of professors, IT experts, and Harvard advisors.
