IT Students Create Virtual Gallery for Museum Collection

Right: A user in Fang Wang's Virtual Reality Lab views a virtual exhibit through VR goggles. Left: An example of what users would see when viewing the VR gallery. Mizzou Engineering students are putting the final touches on an interactive art exhibit that will allow visitors to view paintings without ever stepping inside a museum. [...]
Robotics Expert: Gen Z Will Usher in Era of Advanced Robots

Robotics Expert: Gen Z Will Usher in Era of Advanced Robots

Today’s robots are good at performing single tasks. You can buy an autonomous robot, for instance, to vacuum your house. A true single helper robot that can vacuum, cook and wash the dishes? That could be a while, but Dale Musser believes Generation Z will usher in the era of advanced robotics. “This is the [...]
Robotics Expert: New Type of Computing Needed for AI Revolution

Robotics Expert: New Type of Computing Needed for AI Revolution

Robots today may look human-like, but it will take a new type of computing for true artificial intelligence to be a reality, Gui DeSouza says. Robotics have come a long way since Gui DeSouza was defending his dissertation on automated systems for automotive production lines in the 1990s. But he believes it will take a [...]
Mizzou Engineer Applies Love of Film to Color Research Project

Mizzou Engineer Applies Love of Film to Color Research Project

An undergraduate team is conducting color research on Academy Award winning films such as Mad Max: Fury Road. Junior Josh Ward has always been a movie buff. So when he had the opportunity to use what he’s learned in his computer science courses to help analyze award-winning films, he was thrilled to get involved. Ward [...]
Two Mizzou Engineers Named Goldwater Scholars

Two Mizzou Engineers Named Goldwater Scholars

Rebecca Shyu and Brandon Lee both received the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship. Two Mizzou Engineering students have been named Goldwater Scholars, making the University of Missouri the only school in the state with more than one recipient. Rebecca Shyu is majoring in computer science with an interest in bioinformatics. Brandon Lee is a double major in [...]
IT Students to be Among First to Use New 5G Lab

IT Students to be Among First to Use New 5G Lab

Fifth-generation wireless technology is poised to transform our daily lives. How? That’s a question Mizzou researchers will begin investigating in an innovative new 5G lab opening on campus later this year. MU and AT&T are collaborating on the lab in Cornell Hall, which will bring 5G+ millimeter wave capability to campus. Fang Wang, an assistant [...]
Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects

Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects

Professor Yi Shang and team are developing a deep learning system that will better identify small objects such as waterfowl in images.   Artificial Intelligence (AI) is good at recognizing a single bird in an image. Where it falls short is when it tries to identify hundreds of tiny birds in an aerial photo. Professor [...]
Computer Science Student Selected for NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Computer Science Student Selected for NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Roland Oruche, a second-year PhD student in computer science has been selected to receive a 2021 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship. The highly selective Fellowship recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported STEM disciplines. It includes three years of financial support. Selection as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow “is a highly significant [...]
Engineers Explore Algorithms, Materials to Improve AI Vision

Engineers Explore Algorithms, Materials to Improve AI Vision

Mizzou Engineering researchers are investigating how to engineer materials to improve a machine’s ability to see and understand physical objects. The problem is two-sided. On one hand, the team needs to figure out why artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms sometimes wrongly recognize or fail to correctly recognize objects in images. Ultimately, those algorithms control the behavior [...]
