AI technology could help improve our understanding of beehives, thanks to local company The Best Bee Company.

The Boston-based company has created SmartHives with built-in sensors that can monitor the activity, sounds, temperature, and weight of the hive.

The team monitors these variables in real time and can determine the needs of the hive by how much nectar, pollen, and honey the bees have collected + produced.

The plan is to fly out more SmartHives to beekeepers across the country next year.
