#CiekawiNoscience online: Bees under the watchful eye of artificial intelligence


During the 8th online meeting in the #CiekawiNauki series entitled “Bees under the eye of artificial intelligence”, an intelligent system for remote monitoring of apiaries – Smartula will be presented.

On May 21 at the online meeting of the series #CyekawiScience you will learn how artificial intelligence, by interpreting the signals coming from the hives, can help save honey bees and improve their living conditions. SMARTULA is a system of small, energy-saving devices which, thanks to the use of dedicated algorithms, determine the condition of the colony and identify threats, e.g. unfavorable conditions in hives, bee diseases, pest attacks or theft or vandalism.

Our algorithms learn the language of the swarm so we can understand what the bees want to tell us – say the creators of the apiary monitoring system SMARTULA.

#CiekawiNauki are open meetings for the inquisitive organized at the Gdańsk University of Technology – this time a meeting for enthusiasts of modern science and modern technologies, lovers of bees, beekeeping and environmental protection.

Honey bees pollinate a large proportion of the plants we eat. They also produce honey – a valued delicacy, ingredient of cosmetics, medicinal preparations and other products that we use every day. Therefore, the reports of growing threats contributing to the collapse of apiaries are disturbing: agriculture intensification, unfavorable changes in the natural environment or diseases (Colony Collapse Disorder – a global phenomenon caused by diseases).

SMARTULA is a system of small, energy-saving devices which, thanks to the use of dedicated algorithms, determine the condition of the colony and identify threats, e.g. unfavorable conditions in hives, bee diseases, pest attacks or theft or vandalism. In August 2020, after months of system improvements and research on bee behavior, the product will be tested by professional beekeepers.
