The World Bee Project Hive Network is an international network of remotely monitored honey bee (Apis Mellifera) hives which connect to the Oracle Cloud to provide a scalable, secure, global, honey bee health monitoring system.

The World Bee Project and its partners the University of Reading and Oracle are building a scientific evidence base to drive an innovative new tool for safeguarding honeybee health across varying global regions.

How are we doing it? 

The World Bee Project Hive Network sends its data into the Oracle Autonomous Database and leverages the Oracle Analytics Cloud for machine learning modelling and for data visualizations. This allows Oracle to also leverage Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for computing and data storage and processing. Oracle have a tightly integrated cloud system that allows our World Bee Project global teams, including leading research institutes such as our partner the University of Reading, to analyse the data, understand insights efficiently and reliably, and link the insights to actual honey bee health across global regions.

We hope that the knowledge and insights The World Bee Project Hive Network generates will contribute to food security, help improve livelihoods for the 1.5 billion people in smallholder farmer households, and inspire invaluable individual and community, policy making and government actions across the world.
