David Bowen, who is an Associate Professor of Sculpture and Physical Computing at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, has created a project called FlyAI. In this artificial intelligence experiment, Bowen has established a fly colony inside a transparent globe and is using a piece of learning software called TensorFlow. The Raspberry Pi captures images of the fly environment and then processes it through image recognition libraries and TensorFlow to determine if a fly was present in the photograph. If the fly is determined as being present, a pump delivers water and nutrients to the colony. If the fly is not definitely there, no nutrients are delivered. The system will run indefinitely, just to see what happens.
