British households create over 26m tonnes of waste each year, the weight of around 260 large cruise while the recycling rate is only 45%.
What it does
Build a platform that allows people to keep track of their recycling while competing with friends and family. Incentivises positive recycling behavior and minimal carbon footprints through social media sharing.
How I built it
Python Flask, Azure Cognitive Services API, HTML/CSS, Plotly (charting), Pandas
Challenges I ran into
Integration between the data science work we did and full-stack application
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning something new in such a short amount of time
What I learned
How to integrate different technologies together through just reading documentation
What's next for Carbon Capture
Expand the collection of our waste classification as well as integrate into pollution and energy markets. Additional features e.g. making a donation to the environmental charity of choice, setting daily/weekly saving goals.
Partner with research groups in environmental data science and machine learning.
