Team develops technique to segment carbon nanotube forests in images
Mizzou Engineering researchers are another step closer to controlling the properties of carbon nanotubes growing in mass quantities.
Calyam, collaborators using AI to assist local news organizations
Each day, local newsrooms across the United States are inundated with a myriad of press releases and story pitches competing for attention from a staff already strapped for time. Prasad Calyam, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science, and his team are among an elite group of researchers working to integrate automation and artificial intelligence to help local news organizations solve this challenge and others.
Mizzou Engineer lends protein prediction expertise to climate change studies at Danforth Plant Science Center
An inter-institutional research team is using the power of computational analysis to pinpoint which plant genes confer resilience against rising temperatures that threaten global food supplies in the coming decades. Mizzou Engineering Professor Jianlin “Jack” Cheng — one of the first scientists in the world to use deep learning, a powerful artificial intelligence technique, to predict protein structures — adds a unique perspective to the work. Since 2018, he’s been collaborating with Dr. Ru Zhang, a plant scientist at the Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, to leverage computational tools in the study of plant genes.
Team earns ‘Best Paper Award’ for developing AI model to track waterfowl
An interdisciplinary Mizzou team received a “Best Paper Award” after developing system that can automatically identify individual birds in images of waterfowl flocks.
Study unexpectedly finds only 7 health symptoms directly related to ‘long COVID’
In a new study, a team of University of Missouri researchers made an unexpected discovery: people experiencing long-lasting effects from COVID-19 — known as “long COVID” or post-COVID conditions — are susceptible to developing only seven health symptoms for up to a year following the infection. They are: fast-beating heart, hair loss, fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, joint pain and obesity.
Mizzou researchers provide direct evidence of localized explosion of aluminum nanoparticle
A Mizzou Engineering team has provided direct evidence of a localized explosion of an aluminum nanoparticle, a mechanism first theorized in 2006.
Mizzou Engineer leading NSF Convergence Accelerator project to ensure food safety
A Mizzou Engineer is leading a team to develop new technologies that will quickly detect foodborne pathogens with the goal of improving food safety, especially among lower socioeconomic communities.
Team using artificial intelligence to revolutionize infrared sensors
With funding from the U.S. Army, a Mizzou Engineering team and collaborators are using artificial intelligence in hopes of revolutionizing infrared sensors.
Team to present work around spiking neural networks at DATE conference
A Mizzou Engineering research team led by Assistant Professor Khaza Anuarul Hoque will present two papers at the Design Automation and Test in Europe Conference and Exhibition (DATE), an A1-rated conference, in the area of hardware and electronic design automation (EDA), in Belgium this coming spring.
Researchers using machine learning to transcript centuries-old scripts
A University of Missouri research team has proved that a machine can be trained to decipher centuries-old script. Now, they want to see if that model is smart enough to read other handwritten documents from the era without as much human assistance.
