Mizzou Engineering team develops video retrieval system based on captioning

t’s not hard to search for a cute cat video on the internet. But if you want to find a video of a cat chasing a dog down a street on a sunny day, it gets trickier. Now, a Mizzou Engineering team has developed a novel system that relies on image captioning to find video clips of specific objects and scenes.

Engineers share expertise around Nautilus with Great Plains Network

Mizzou Engineers are sharing their expertise around the National Research Platform, or Nautilus, with academic peers and leaders across the state this year. Nautilus is a massively scaled hypercluster with thousands of compute nodes located all across the U.S. and powered by Kubernetes, an open source software platform.

AI software can predict ‘roadmap’ for protein location, biological discoveries

Recently, Dong Xu, Curators' Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Missouri, and colleagues updated their protein localization prediction model, MULocDeep, with the ability to provide more targeted predictions, including specific models for animals, humans and plants.

Student Capstones Spring 2023 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Computer science students connect with local bakery for capstone project

Computer science students in the capstone group Pecan π Shop created a web application for bakery owners to manage all aspects of their businesses. The project was one of many that CS students worked on for their capstone course, a class that connects student groups with industry partners to solve a real-world problem.

Cheng developing software to predict protein function using generative AI

A Mizzou Engineer has received funding from the National Science Foundation to develop a tool that will predict how a protein functions based on its order of amino acids. Jianlin “Jack” Cheng envisions developing open source software that would allow a user to enter the sequence, then the system would predict not only how that string of amino acids will form into a structure but also the role it will carry out within a cell. Additionally, the system would pinpoint the specific site of the protein that carries out the function.

Graduates reflect on time at Mizzou and look forward to the future

Each spring, Mizzou Engineering students bury their heads in coursework, try to enjoy the gorgeous weather and think about the exciting experiences that summer brings. For graduates, that routine changes as they look to their future careers, graduate school and new adventures.
