  • Hello, nice to meet you.

  • The Netherlands produce about 50% of all flowers in the world.

  • The most famous one of all?

  • The tulip of course.

  • Flowers are really remarkable organisms.

  • We've known for decades that they can actually communicate to each other through their root system.

  • For the past 2 years, Wageningen University has been working very closely with Google to use cutting-edge technology to look deeper into communication with plants.

  • Hello.

  • We collected an incredible amount of information.

  • Using automated machine learning we turned this information into a new rudimentary language which is becoming more and more sophisticated over time.

  • The more we listen to nature, the more we discover the amazing things it has to say.

  • OK Google. Talk to my tulip.

  • What do you want?

  • Water, please.

  • We've applied all this research into our latest product: Google Tulip.

  • Two granddaughters. Francis, who just had a second baby...

  • -That is so interesting. -And...

  • Finished. Nothing left.

  • More. You promised more water.

  • At Keukenhof we are very excited about tulip technology.

  • We like to know what tulips need.

  • And what better way than to ask them?

  • -I need water. -More light. -Please improve humidity.

  • -What is a sun? -Please come here. -More space. -No more compost.

  • -Thank you. -Who are you? -Why are there so many like me? -More light.

  • Of course this is only the beginning.

  • We're rolling out the tulip language in the beginning of April but we're already well under way with several updates.

  • Hello?

  • No.

  • Cactus?

  • Leave me alone.

  • It's so great not to have a one-way relationship with the tulips anymore.

  • What is the meaning of my existence?

  • Ssssh.

  • Tulip is a breakthrough in human-plant communication.

  • Letting users around the world communicate with any tulip.

  • OK Google. Play my favorite music.

  • Uh, yeah.

  • That's right.

  • Uh. Yeah.

  • Drop that beat.

Hello, nice to meet you.
