Hard Challenges in Dirty Places: ML's Huge Impact on the Recycling Industry
Thursday, Jun 2, 2022
Recycling is one of the primary levers we can use to fight our society’s impact on our climate, and the industry has tremendous potential to improve its operations and drive real impact in our fight against climate change.
Glacier is deploying cutting-edge ML to perform classification and detection work that is revolutionizing the circular economy. Our challenges are unique and complex – distinguishing plastic resins, characterizing truckloads of trash, automatically detecting contamination. We’re using ML to extract value out of the products we consume and throw away, to ensure that businesses in the space have the technology they need to thrive, and to make an immediate impact on our climate.
