Using Deep Learning for Non-Invasive Pollen Detection on Honey Bees

Abstract 

In this work, we present a completely non-invasive system for counting bee and pollen traffic in a beehive. This system is designed to be generalizable to various beehives, rather than being restricted to certain backgrounds and entrance types. In addition, we present a prototype cloud-based system that allows beekeepers to upload video footage, automatically processes this, and returns gathered statistics to the beekeepers. We examine the performance of our models and compare it to human performance, which we in many cases match or even outperform.
