Modelling of a modern MRF
Paloma’s paper has a dual focus on two of the challenges faced by MRFs today: The challenges associated with efficiency, waste composition variation and waste sampling methods….
Single Shot 2D Image to 3D Model
This research consists of 2 papers offering differing reconstruction approaches to obtain high accuracy inferences of 3D structures with textures from 2D single shot images….
Decentralised and Digitised Mini Material Recovery Facilities
This research explores the disruption of centralised waste facilities to accommodate a decentralised model, known as the mini-MRF, that is capable of extracting more value out of waste streams….
Deep Learning: Unsupervised Domain Adaptation
The goal of this WasteNet series is to engineer a Deep Learning model that will focus on UDA for the instance segmentation task. As such, there are only two other approaches that are addressing this. …
Regulated Bans in Waste Management
Amandine looks at how we can form healthier consumer habits and increased recycling rates by enforcing regulations around complex materials….
An Application of Machine Learning for Brand-Level Waste Management
Computer vision for brand-level logo detection of waste in real-time was tested. The brand recognition of waste items can be used to increase the granularity of the waste characterisation, simultaneously providing information to improve mass measurements. …
Recycleye Bin: A Human-in-the-Loop Approach to Computer Vision Waste Disposal
Studies have shown that the rate of recycling amongst individuals can be increased by correcting mistakes. …
Instance Segmentation of Novel Objects in a Conveyer Setting
The advancements in deep learning have enabled rapid growth of computer vision capabilities. However, in order to achieve successful results, it requires a heavy reliance on the availability of large labelled datasets….
A Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to Generate Transparent Objects
The research conducted uses a technique which creates synthetic data using a general adversarial network to generate transparent objects….
