To efficiently detect plastics from imagery, the quality of the image is crucial. Sun glints, sea foam, different camera exposures, and the size of the plastics influence in the accuracy of the AI algorithms. The Ocean Cleanup is also working to reduce the power consumption required by the AI algorithms. Currently, the Neural Network algorithms demand a significant amount of electricity and every bit of power is vital when you are in the middle of the ocean. In addition to these difficulties associated with the artificial intelligence system, The Ocean Cleanup is constantly discovering new ways to overcome engineering and scientific challenges.
