Mizzou Engineering researcher aims for a smoother ride

A Mizzou Engineering researcher is proposing to use wireless sensor technology to provide some relief to automobile drivers frustrated by traffic congestion and slowdowns. Computer Science Professor Yi Shang aims to use a new type of battery-powered sensor to create a traffic control system that would be more efficient and significantly less expensive than current […]

Cerner and MU-ACM host programming competition

University of Missouri computer science students recently were given a chance to show off their skills at an annual programming competition. Co-sponsored by Cerner Corporation, a healthcare information technology supplier, and the MU Association for Computing Machinery chapter the October 18 event attracted 35 competitors. “The competition helps to build strong programming skills, you get […]

University IT program takes flight after win at Missouri Academy of Science competition

The University of Missouri College of Engineering’s Information Technology department captured their first student award, and the win has boosted more than just the competitors’ morale. Four MU students participated in the Missouri Academy of Science collegiate division paper competition last April at Southern Missouri State University. Undergraduate students from universities and colleges in the […]

Student Achievement

James Bryce, a senior in civil engineering, is one of 12 students nationwide to be selected for the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program this summer. The program introduces students to the impact they might have on public policy as professional engineers. Bryce wrote to faculty mentor Professor John Bowders from Washington saying, […]

3-D imaging research takes aim at autism

A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2007 confirmed what had become obvious to many health care professionals, specialists, and family support agencies: More children than ever before were being diagnosed with autism. Investigators called its prevalence an “urgent public health concern,” estimating that two to six in every 1,000 […]

Student team wins $11,000 for Adobe AIR platform application

Last summer, the Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) teamed up with Adobe Systems and asked students to submit ideas for ways to help news organizations deliver news and advertising and to ease the two-way conversation with their consumers. Proposed projects would use the new Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) platform for desktop applications. Judges selected three out […]

Biometric trends in security

The biometric era that many foresee should be based on several biometric identifiers, rather than a single trait, a prominent biometric researcher contends. Government and commercial interest in biometric technology, which measures unique body characteristics such as fingerprints or iris patterns to determine identity, has swelled during the last several years as the vulnerabilities of […]

MU students sort through information overload

Three MU computer science students are receiving national recognition for successfully tackling a segment of today’s information overload dilemma. Engineering graduate students Wannapa Mahamaneerat, Jason Green and Tetsuya Kobayashi have earned kudos from the American Medical Information Association (AMIA) competition for a computer program they developed that categorizes huge amounts of data so that useful […]
