Using Software for Sustainability - Microsoft Reactor Green Tech Series

Using Software for Sustainability - Microsoft Reactor Green Tech Series

We are frequently reminded of all the plastic that goes into the ocean, and the massive impact it has to marine life – and ultimately us. Plastic pollution is the second biggest threat to our ocean after climate change. While there are a lot of creative ideas and research into capturing this plastic from the oceans, it’s still a tricky challenge.

This session will explore how AI can help address this problem. We’ll focus on Surfrider who used a Microsoft hackathon to build an Open-Source platform which enabled volunteers to help capture plastic at the source.
