We aspire to revolutionize education by embedding sustainability principles into the curriculum. Our innovation serves as a tangible example, fostering environmental consciousness and empowering students to be proactive stewards of our planet's future.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

As a young environmental activist, I've witnessed the devastating impact of waste on our planet. I created this innovation because I'm determined to make a difference. By leveraging AI technology, we're transforming waste sorting, increasing recycling rates, and paving the way for a more sustainable future.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

In practice, our innovation involves the installation of smart bins equipped with AI-powered sorting mechanisms in public areas, homes, and businesses. These bins feature a single disposal point where users can deposit their waste without the need for pre-sorting. Upon disposal, the AI system inside the bin automatically identifies and sorts the waste into separate compartments based on its type and recyclability. This seamless process ensures efficient waste sorting without requiring users to manually separate their waste, ultimately promoting convenience and improving recycling rates.

How has it been spreading?

We are still working on it.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Once we start selling in the market, it will work like this - You can simply buy it and follow the instructions to set up the parts and it will start working.

Implementation steps

Set up the AI-powered waste sorting system in the desired location, ensuring proper positioning and connection to power sources.
Calibrate the system to optimize its performance and accuracy in recognizing and sorting different types of waste.
Dispose of waste as usual by placing it into the designated disposal area or bin equipped with the AI-powered sorting system.
Observe the system in action as it identifies and sorts the waste into appropriate categories based on its type and recyclability.
Implement regular maintenance and monitoring procedures to ensure the continued functionality and reliability of the system over time.
