Computer Science Students Create RIDSI Website to Help Track Traffic

State officials and emergency workers in Missouri will have an easier way to view traffic data in the future, thanks to a Mizzou Engineering collaboration. For their senior capstone project, computer science students created a website and mobile app that provide a central source for real-time and historical transportation information.

Cementing Skills and Fun

Mizzou Engineering students just completed the building of an item that sounds impossible to construct – a concrete canoe. Yet the Concrete Canoe Team spends many hours every year doing just that.

NSF CAREER grant to help bridge technology and transportation

Yaw Adu-Gyamfi, assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering (CEE), recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) grant. This award is to further his current work with his DASH platform plus additional proposals with deep learning and adaptive computing to design management solutions for transportation systems.

Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects Shang working with Missouri

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 Yi Shang and his research team have been working for three years to see where AI can improve its vision when it comes to small objects.

A New Way to Visualize Mountains of Biological Data

A team of engineers and scientists from the University of Missouri and the Ohio State University have created a new way to analyze data from single-cell RNA-sequencing by using a computer method called “machine learning.”
