Under every AI (Artificial Intelligence) model is a solid foundation of high-quality labeled data. SUPA.so, the exclusive data annotation partner to Greyparrot, the leading AI Waste Intelligence company, has enabled Greyparrot to expand its waste recognition library from 49 to 89 categories.

Powered with SUPA's high quality annotations, Greyparrot's Analyzer provides 100% visibility into waste streams at recycling plants across 14 countries using AI camera systems to maximize resource recovery.

This expansion to 89 waste categories allows more granular analysis of waste streams to produce richer insights for MRF (Material Recovery Facility) operators to improve recycling efficiency and decrease the environmental impact of waste. Greyparrot is also able to use these insights to further expand its use cases and advance sustainability efforts throughout the entire waste value chain, from waste prevention to proper disposal.

“Greyparrot's deep learning model instantly recognises waste objects at every stage of a recycling facility. With the expansion to 89 classes, this granular data unlocks further digitisation and automation capabilities for recycling operations as well as provides rich data for the waste ecosystem. SUPA's labeling support has been instrumental in our accelerated progress.” – Dominic Calina, Head of Data at Greyparrot.ai

The partnership has not only resulted in SUPA developing a team of highly specialized annotators whose domain knowledge enables the continuous scaling of classes, but also enabled tech infrastructure that automates the data pipeline for labeling. This reduces typical start up time from 2 - 3 weeks to 24 hours, without compromising on data quality.

"At SUPA, I believe that you cannot build great tech without great people and partnerships. It's been exciting growing alongside Greyparrot, and I look forward to our continued collaboration and success." - Mark Koh, CEO and Co-founder of SUPA.so


About Greyparrot.ai

Greyparrot (greyparrot.ai), the leader in AI waste analytics, is applying AI to globally scale recycling and save millions of tonnes of waste from landfills and incinerators. By providing deeper, more intelligent insights about waste stream composition and value, Greyparrot is helping the waste sector recover more value from waste processing lines and reduce the environmental impact of waste.

The company’s waste intelligence platform, including Greyparrot Analyzer and Greyparrot Sync (API), reveals real-time insights on over 80 waste categories across seven layers of data, including financial value, brand, and GHG emissions, captured at multiple locations across a recycling facility. In 2023, Greyparrot analysed over 25 billion waste objects helping drive efficiency to save hundreds of thousands, to millions, of dollars per facility – while diverting millions of tonnes of waste away from landfills, oceans, and incinerators.
