Intelligent camera technology to revolutionise plastics recycling

A new research project is aiming to develop a camera-based separation system that can separate plastic waste according to type. The machine will be implemented at plastic recyclers, enabling the manufacturing industry to significantly increase the use of recycled plastics.

Marine robots can operate in inhospitable places where it can be both expensive and dangerous for people. They can open up fantastic opportunities in the vast uncharted areas below sea level. Photo: German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), Robotics Innovation Center.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 956200.

How do we design reliable AI for marine robots?

Intelligent marine robots open up a wide range of possibilities in the vast unknown areas below sea level, covering more than 70 per cent of the surface of the Earth. However, we need reliable artificial intelligence if robots are to operate on their own. A new EU-funded project will address this problem.
