The Evolution of Beekeeping: Artificial Intelligence
The apiarists at āFER believe that we need to let nature do what she does best, with as minimal interference from us as possible.
Beekeeping is no different, by using technology we can manage our hives remotely, leaving the bees to forage, reproduce and build their colonies as nature intended. We believe that healthy, happy bees make the best honey.
At āFER, we manage the hives through precision robotics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. Our beekeepers continually watch the bees using Artificial Intelligence, which detects their demands in real time, allowing us to meet the bees' requirements as they arise in the field, without the need for human involvement.
Our honey is produced using cutting-edge technology that monitors the hive to ensure the production of top-quality nectar. The temperature within the hive is controlled so that flavor is never compromised and the weight of the hive is measured to determine nectar flow. The movement and sounds of the bees are also tracked to better understand their production habits. These careful considerations are what promise a truly unique experience.
We're not changing the way beekeeping is done; we're just putting it into practice using a AI system in real time.
