Bega Cheese is moving into the world of honey, and protecting bees in the process. The company has launched the Purple Hive Project, which utilises 360-degree cameras and AI to protect Aussie bees from the destructive Varroa mite. The name of Bega's new sweet product (literally) is B Honey -- an 100 per cent Aussie sourced honey. You should spot it in your local food aisles soon. But even more importantly is Bega's foray into the world of bee tech to protect against a tiny intruder.
Bega Cheese has launched a network of smart beehives that can automatically detect parasites in a bid to safeguard Australian honey production. The Purple Hive Project uses 3D printed components to house 360 degree cameras that feed into an artificial intelligence algorithm that is capable of identifying healthy bees from those carrying the deadly varroa destructor mite. The solar-powered devices immediately send an alert to beekeepers to quarantine the affected hive to contain the spread of the mite, which has devastated bee colonies on every other continent. An initiative from Bega Cheese's B Honey brand, the devices can be fixed to existing beehives for round the clock monitoring at high-risk entry points to Australia, saving beekeepers from having to perform manual inspections. Unchecked infestations of varroa mites can cripple and even kill off entire hives within three to fours years, industry group BeeAware said.
This is the 2nd part of our list of 20 AI, Data Science, Machine Learning terms to know for 2020. Here is 20 AI, Data Science, Machine Learning Terms You Need to Know in 2020 (Part 1). Those definitions were compiled by KDnuggets Editors Matthew Dearing, Matthew Mayo, Asel Mendis, and Gregory Piatetsky. This is a really interesting concept, which Pedro Domingos, a leading AI researcher, called one of the most significant advances in ML theory in 2019. The phenomenon is shown in Figure 1.
With over 1 billion active iOS powered device users and 2 billion active Android-powered device users, the custom mobile app development sector is providing the most profitable and captivating markets to develop and sell the most advanced digital solutions to the users all across the globe. There are about 4 million unique mobile applications on this operating system, most of which have similar functions. Machine learning is a crucial and integral part of Artificial Intelligence which are widely used in software development services. Also, it had an impact on mobile applications development and has become a potential market for implementing software that can adapt to user behavior. Now these days, everyone wants a customized user experience according to their specific needs.
While artificial intelligence (AI) is nothing new--the field of "AI research" formally began in 1956--it does provide a constant stream of news concerning the many AI advancements in recent years. For example, there is the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed, as is seen with machine learning. Although this sounds good at face value, many choose the glass half-empty route and instead focus on the implication, or rather, what they think it implies: an imminent AI/robot takeover. Yes, AI is pretty much everywhere, such as where you shop (Amazon) and watch (Netflix), but this doesn't mean it's a bad thing. Does it actually depend on profession?
