Mizzou Engineer develops software tool to investigate root growth

Arabidopsis thaliana roots growing in culture. A Mizzou Engineer has developed a software tool that could give farmers greener thumbs. The tool could help enable them to develop crop cultivars that are drought resistant, ensuring roots can reach falling water tables, adapt to warmer temperatures and be more resilient to environmental changes. Kannappan Palaniappan, a [...]
Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

In one difficult example, the CIVALab AI software was able to estimate the age of each person correctly without error. Mizzou Engineers have developed a two-stage computational model that can accurately predict someone’s age based off a single facial image. The system earned the team third place at the Guess the Age contest, part of [...]
