Big Data analysis for the beehive
Audi Environmental Foundation sponsors “we4bee”
  • Network of 100 high-tech beehives for studying bee colonies
  • Application phase for students as bee patrons runs until February 15 

The Audi Environmental Foundation and its partner we4bee are launching a research project of the same name to analyze bee behavior. Hundreds of beehives equipped with high-tech sensors transmit enormous amounts of data online about the health status of the bees and environmental influences on the colony. Scientists at the University of Würzburg want to use scientific methods to identify bee behavior and derive conclusions from that information about oncoming environmental events. The application phase for schools and educational institutions to become patrons of the bee colonies runs until February 15.
