What it does

This is where CleanCurrent takes over. We decided to embrace a more strategic approach by working with trash centers at the local level. This helps us mitigate the waste issues of more people than any PSA. Using Artificial Intelligence, CleanCurrent automates the trash sorting process and helps the landfills bring trash to their correct locations.

Challenges we ran into

Learning how to create the AI that could recognize the waste, with google collab having some package errors.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Some accomplishments that we're proud of are our front end and ability to create such a complex model in such a short time.

What we learned

Coming into this hackathon we did not know too much about the topic of waste management and how recyclables affect the environment, but through further investigation and research into the topics we learned the importance of the situation (such as the amount of recyclable plastic that ends up in landfills and pollutes the ocean). We also picked up on several new technologies while working on the project such as TensorFlow to create the AI and new HTML tags to create more sophisticated UI controls.

What's next for CleanCurrent

We will expand CleanCurrent's capabilities to Live predictions. Then, we will get into contact with waste processing facilities and convince them to use our product.
