Topic: Data Driven Beekeeping

Abstract: The Bee Corp is a benefit corporation founded in Bloomington, IN that applies data analytics to beekeeping. Our mission is to drive innovation on traditional beekeeping practices through scientific research and technology in order to foster sustainable honeybee populations. Because of advancements in sensor technology, the Internet of Things is permeating traditional industries. Increasingly, beekeepers are adopting technology to discover insights about their hives. The Bee Corp uses the sensor data to derive hive health insights, allowing beekeepers to track the health of their hive in real time. This talk will focus on the current knowledge and future possibilities of precision beekeeping.
