Play • 20 min

We talked with Sam Dietrich of Prairie Robotics.

Sam was inspired to create change in the world to make recycling simpler so that we can individually make a positive environmental impact.

After entering a competition to find out how technology can be used to monitor the amount of solid waste generated and disposed of in Saskatchewan, Prairie Robotics used Artificial Intelligence to estimate the weight of the waste entering landfills to capture data in real time to automatically generate waste reports. This wasn’t enough, so they developed the ability to use AI at the source to resolve issues at the household level.

We talked with Sam about the importance of recycling, how we can change the future now, and what’s in store for Prairie Robotics.

“9 out of 10 people in North America find recycling more confusing than investing in the stock market, filing their taxes or assembling Ikea furniture.” – Sam Dietrich, CEO of Prairie Robotics
