This is another neat example of real-world AI. The point here is that working out what is trash or is otherwise a cool-looking sea animal or coral, is surprisingly hard.

One of the issues, as in many real-world situations, a lack of data.

But, by using some standard deep-learning approaches, namely by generating the images they need, they are able to get enough data to train a good model!
