Eyesonhives Presentation

My talk is titled “Eyesonhives: Citizen Science powering a Health Monitor for Honey Bees”.   My goal is to make this a short and exciting presentation, practicing for a future TED talk format.  I’ll happily answer questions afterwards.

I’ll be talking about

  • How a 40+ year old beekeeping trick inspired a state of the art technology breakthrough for beehive monitoring.
  • The exciting implications of detecting the Orientation Signal as a bee health pattern.
  • Interesting bee behavior patterns such as the swarming signal.
  • How mindful individual beekeepers are helping classify the eyesonhives dataset and contribute to helping bees.

In case you missed it – here’s a quick introductory video:
