Students Explore Virtual Reality Applications in VR Lab

About a dozen students from across campus got to experience various applications of virtual reality during a field trip to the VR Lab at Mizzou Engineering yesterday. Fang Wang, an assistant teaching professor in the Information Technology Program, and several of her students demonstrated the technology through projects they’ve worked on over the past couple [...]
Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

Mizzou Engineering Hosts Virtual AIPR Conference

EECS faculty members Prasad Calyam andKannappan Palaniappan co-hosted this year's AIRP Conference, using the new IDE Lab on campus. The event has historically been held at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., pictured on the monitor. Mizzou Engineering hosted the 49th annual Applied Imagery Pattern Recognition (AIPR) conference last week, proving that a virtual event [...]
Gargees on Mission to Boost Number of Women in Computer Science

Gargees on Mission to Boost Number of Women in Computer Science

Gargees Computer science is rapidly growing as technology becomes more pervasive in our homes and lives. However, the number of women in computer science programs in the U.S. has dropped since 2000. Mizzou Engineering’s Rasha Gargees is on a mission to change that. Gargees was selected this year to participate in the University of Missouri’s [...]
Mizzou Engineers Help RJI Develop JSafe App

Mizzou Engineers Help RJI Develop JSafe App

The JSafe app will allow female journalists to better document and store incidents of harassment. Computer Science students have developed an app to help female journalists document harassment. The JSafe app lets reporters store incident reports in a secure, cloud-based system. The app is a partnership between Mizzou Engineering, MU’s Reynolds Journalism Institute and the [...]
Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality

Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality

Weiyu Feng uses virtual reality goggles to experience a classroom he is not physically in. Through the goggles, he can see classmate Will Slama in a realistic setting rather than on screen. Students unable to attend in-person classes in the future could still get the full classroom experience, thanks to emerging virtual environment technologies. Fang [...]
Detecting Deepfake Photos, Videos with a Computerized Brain

Detecting Deepfake Photos, Videos with a Computerized Brain

Imagine seeing yourself in a photo or video that was never taken, with your head possibly appearing on another person’s body. You’re likely a victim of a deepfake cyberattack — where cyber attackers expertly alter images and videos shared on a social media platform to fool people into believing what they are seeing is true. [...]
Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

Team Devising Way to Analyze Images from Drone Footage

This photo illustration shows how a drone captures aerial video of a farm. A Mizzou research team is devising a way to pull high-resolution images from that video footage automatically. Imagine being able to assess the health of a single plant in the middle of a field by automatically analyzing a photo of it. The [...]
Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Using artificial intelligence technologies, Thompson Professor Jianlin Cheng is devising a way to predict 3-dimensional protein structures. The method translates a protein sequence into a 2-dimensional map to predict the structure. Knowing the three-dimensional structure of proteins—such as the shape of the spike-like protein that injects coronavirus into our cells—can help us treat illnesses. That’s [...]
Mizzou Engineering Team Develops New Model to Predict Algae Growth

Mizzou Engineering Team Develops New Model to Predict Algae Growth

Researchers hope to predict and promote algae growth at wastewater treatment plants such as this one to purify water sources. Two Mizzou Engineering departments have teamed up to develop a new computer model that will predict algae growth. The research has the potential to increase algae production—and that could lead to cleaner water supplies. Students [...]
Mizzou Cyber Range to Focus on Cyber Pretense Strategies

Mizzou Cyber Range to Focus on Cyber Pretense Strategies

Hackers are getting smarter about ways to steal sensitive information from the cloud. Now, a new “Mizzou Cyber Range” will train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to fight back using cyber pretense strategies. Armed with new grant funding from the National Security Agency, Prasad Calyam and his team are building the Mizzou Cyber Range [...]
