NSF Project to Advance Edge Computing
Edge computing has the potential to make our computers and devices run smarter and faster. Right now, though, the technology is in its infancy and not ready for prime time.
Islam Elected Secretary of ECEDHA for Central States
Syed Kumrul Islam, chair of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Mizzou, has been elected secretary of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA) for the Central States Region.
EECS Faculty Member Helps Develop Metrics for Open Source Software
Those wanting to download and use open source software in the future will have a better sense of what they’re getting, thanks in part to the work of a Mizzou Engineer. Open source software is computer software distributed with a license that allows anyone to see, use and modify the original code. In many cases, an open source project attracts other developers who contribute to the project. This forms a community where those involved improve and enhance the software. Sean Goggins, an associate professor in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, is helping develop metrics to give potential contributors and users better insight into open source projects.
Keller Receives Top Award from IEEE
Jim Keller—an emeritus professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science—has received a top award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world’s largest technical professional organization.
Mizzou to Offer Cyber Security Camp Virtually this Summer
Mizzou Engineering will offer a cyber security camp for high school students virtually this year. The Hacker Tracker camp is typically part of Mizzou Summer Camps. However, the university has canceled other 2020 camps because of COVID-19 concerns.
Lagermann Puts Electrical Engineering Courses to Work at Garmin
When Isaac Lagermann ’21 began an internship at Garmin earlier this month, he immediately put his electrical engineering courses to work. Lagermann is working at an aircraft hanger just outside the company's headquarters in Kansas City. There, he is creating diagrams and instructions to help buyers install Garmin products in airplanes.
Mizzou Engineers, Physicians to Help Rural Missouri Plan Ahead for Pandemic: Geospatial Big Data is Key
Planning ahead for a pandemic—or any disaster situation—is costly and complex. Now, Mizzou researchers are hoping to take the guesswork out of it for Missouri’s smaller communities.
Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities
A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the idea with an award funding the group’s research for three years.
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19
The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for free.
