Kauai Coffee Wins Ag Hackathon

Technology from Kauai took top honors at Hawaii’s first agriculture hackathon, a week-long event in Honolulu that started Jan. 13. The device is the brainchild of Oceanit Labs, Kauai Coffee Company and Kamehameha Schools, and it brought the team a $3,000 first-place prize, along with bragging rights.
The technology is an artificial intelligence camera that helps improve crop yields by determining the ripeness of coffee beans for harvest. “The AI chip is small and independent, it doesn’t rely on the cloud or the web. It learns what ripe coffee looks like,” said Fred Cowell, general manager of Kauai Coffee.
He continued: “It provides feedback for each operator in real time, and links them together so you can see when one is underperforming.” Kauai Coffee plans to use the artificial intelligence camera in its 2018 fall harvest, and Cowell said using the system could boost profits by about a quarter million dollars every year.
Going up against 10 teams in the statewide competition, Cowell said he thinks what helped them seal the win was demonstrating the technology in front of the judges. “We counted jellybeans in front of the judges,” he said. The idea for the technology sparked more than two years ago, when Cowell was talking with old coworkers at Oceanit. When the state’s first agriculture hackathon was announced, the idea resurfaced. “My friend gave me a call and said, ‘hey Fred, you remember that idea…’ It’s so gratifying knowing that nothing but an idea two and a half years ago has come to fruition,” he said.

Kauai Food Forest Volunteer Work Days

Each Saturday starting at 8:30am, there is a volunteer work day in the Kauai Food Forest & Seed Garden. This 1.5 acre agroforestry site, designed along permaculture principals, is intended to become a largely self-perpetuating, food production system. The food forest, now in the early stages, is reliant on community participation and stewardship for ongoing maintenance. Continued participation will evolve our skills in collective enterprise. There are weekly opportunities to practice hands-on sustainable agriculture at the seed garden and the food forest. These experiences allow participants to explore the amazing diversity of plant species and varieties. Shared work sessions bring us together with others who love to learn and grow through the world of plants. Volunteers bring home gifts of the garden and the heart, caring for the earth and each other. For more information, contact Paul at Regenerations by emailing info@ribg.org or call (808) 652-4118.

Kauai Theatrical Performance - A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

Kauai Community Players will be opening its 2018 season with this Broadway classic, one of the funniest musicals ever written. The master director Arnold Meister, a true “Sondhead”, will be at the helm.
The show opens January 12 and runs for 4 weekends through February 4 with performances Fri, Sat and Sun opening weekend, and Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun the 2nd, 3rd and 4th weekends.

The music and lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim (his first show where he was both composer and lyricist) and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus, and Mostellaria, the musical tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The plot displays many classic elements of farce, including puns, the slamming of doors, cases of mistaken identity (frequently involving characters disguising themselves as one another), and satirical comments on social class.
