NEC and JAMSTEC use AI to detect microplastics in seawater
NEC is working with Japanese research agency on an AI-based system for detecting microplastics in seawater. The pair have collaborated on image recognition technology which captures videos of microplastics at a rate of 60 per minute. JAMESTEC has a method for staining microplastics to enable detection. Marine pollution caused by microplastics is a critical environmental issue.
