Brief #1: Accelerate Testing of Polymers for Biodegradability & Sustainability

P&G is looking for new methods of testing polymers for their biodegradability that accelerate the current testing process from 30+ days (with current methods described below) to weeks/days, to speed up the innovation cycle of biodegradable polymers in efforts to achieve P&G's commitment to sustainability. Where there is a good fit, we are looking to drive agile in-market pilots with the goal of scaling successful solutions.

Brief #2: Surface Picture Analysis Capability Research

Currently, the way appearance is evaluated as products are produced is by conducting several off-line analytical methods to determine whether appearance is acceptable. The challenge here is to replace offline testing to determine overall appearance scores for the product being produced. P&G has a pool of images and associated actual appearance scores available. They are looking for solutions that can automate the offline analysis process and deliver equal appearance scores to the current time-consuming offline process. The priority objective of this brief is to able to build a system that can yield the same outputs as the current system. Where there is a good fit, we are looking to drive agile in-market pilots with the goal of scaling successful solutions.
