PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Using computer vision and machine learning to study honey bee behavior

The success of social insects depends on organization and cooperation of individuals that make up a colony. They act independently without coordination from a centralized command center, and the colony-level behavior emerges from millions of interactions between individual agents (the insects).
