Mizzou Engineer to Present at Posters on the Hill

A Mizzou Engineer will be among 60 students presenting this week at Posters on the Hill, a prestigious Washington D.C.-based event that showcases top undergraduate researchers in the country. Rebecca Shyu, who is majoring in computer science, presents virtually on Wednesday, April 28. Specifically, Shyu will present findings from a study she’s been working on [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Computer Science Student Takes First at IEEE Competition

Computer Science Student Takes First at IEEE Competition

A Mizzou Engineering graduate student took first place in his category at an IEEE competition held virtually this past weekend. The IEEE St. Louis student presentations competition is under the umbrella of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the largest technical professional organization in the world. Chenxi Zhao is pursuing a master’s in computer science [...]

Mapping the Cities of the World One Building at a Time from Space

The team used medium-resolution images to try to identify buildings from satellite images (ground-truth in the middle and algorithm results on the right). A group of four computer science PhD students in the Computational Imaging and VisAnalysis (CIVA) Lab: Rina Bao, Imad Toubal,  YangYang Wang and Noor Al-Shakarji at Mizzou Engineering took the top spot [...]
