Builders Zone - Garbage underwater detection

March 10, 2022

With an estimated 8 million metric tons of trash deposited into oceans each year, there are now close to 500 dead zones, where most marine life cannot survive, globally covering more than 245,000 square kilometers, equivalent to the area of the UK. Clearing this trash is a massive job requiring first knowing exactly where the trash is located. This demo shows how to use machine learning to detect trash underwater, mapping it to its location. We use services like Amazon SageMaker, Amazon OpenSearch Service, and AWS IoT to run this model at the edge with TensorFlow and an NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit.
