Pistachio Inspection
Food, Fruits, Vegetables
In March 2019 a customer from the food industry approached us with the following challenge: Can the number of hard to open pistachios in every package be reduced? Currently they were dealing with 5 - 10% of sub-optimal pistachios that would end up getting shipped to customers.

Our results using Deep Learning were pretty impressive: We quickly achieved 100% classification accuracy to the great satisfaction of our customer.

Easy to open (good) and hard to open (bad) pistachio dataset.
