Kinetica, NVIDIA and Microsoft Join Forces to Help Rescue the Honey Bee

A joint event with : NVIDIA and Microsoft Azure

Domestic honey bee hives are collapsing at an alarming rate. Can technology help save the honey bee?

In this real-world environmental analytics opportunity, we explore how a variety of deep learning and machine learning technologies — including the Kinetica insight engine deployed to an NVIDIA DGX Station and the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit deep learning framework – can deliver game-changing possibilities for innovation.

Ben Siegel, CSUSM CS Major, Jacci Cenci, Nvidia SA at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, CA

In this webinar, you will learn how new accelerated analytics technologies and their corresponding compute platforms can deliver this innovation as we follow a honey bee farm scientist in California, who agreed to field test this real-time monitoring solution with her beehives.

We’ll take a deep dive into honey bee hive health monitoring with NVIDIA’s TX2, TensorRT, Kinetica’s insight engine running on DGX-1/DGX Station, and Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit to rapidly optimize, validate, and deploy trained neural networks for inference.

See first-hand how adaptable and accessible these complex, cutting-edge technologies have become and how we can use intelligent monitoring technologies to help rescue the honey bee in the real world.

Join Jonathan Greenberg – Senior Solutions Engineer at Kinetica; Jacci Cenci – Solutions Architect, NVIDIA; and Anusua Trivedi – Data Scientist, Microsoft’s Cloud AI + Research Team for this webinar and you will:

  • Discover how a modern GPU-powered insight engine tackles sensor data streaming with live querying.
  • Learn about the convergence of AI and BI from a single platform.
  • See how new accelerated analytics technologies, and their corresponding compute platforms, can deliver game-changing possibilities for real world innovation.
