“The World Hive Network© enables researchers to analyse a huge library of global bee data using the latest cloud technologies, including massive compute power, machine learning and artificial intelligence”
Director Business Innovation, Oracle
The World Bee Project’s World Hive Network© is the first and the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to track the health of the global honeybee and eventually wild bee populations and their environments.
The World Hive Network© connects the world’s beehives to a single global network. As well as directly safeguarding bees it harnesses the power of bee-derived intelligence for solutions to wider issues of biodiversity, climate change, food security and human wellbeing. It can play a significant role in enabling scientists, governments, and corporates to mitigate the threats to climate change, food security, smallholder farmer and beekeeper livelihoods and create predictive models to ameliorate potential future stresses.
Connecting Hives, Connecting Lives
The World Hive Network© is partnering with Bee Hero to grow this ground-breaking initiative. It now has 50,000 intelligent hives in its network and around 2.5 billion bees!
The World Hive Network© aims to improve our understanding and management of the Earth’s natural resources to help create a more sustainable future. It achieves this by using AI and advanced cloud computing technologies to analyse honeybee and environmental health data from monitored hives in different landscapes. This approach helps to improve farmer and beekeeper livelihoods by enabling sustainable solutions to improve declining crop and honey production, predict challenges and threats, and help build best practice guidance for government policies on land management.
