Mizzou Engineering graduate research on display at open house

Graduate students at Mizzou Engineering conduct their own research, collaborate with peers across campus and develop skills for high-level jobs. Even better? The College helps cover the cost. Those were some of the take-aways from a Graduate Research Open House held Tuesday, Oct. 26. “Graduate school will help you prepare for a rewarding career in […]

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson, PhD candidate Brendan Alvey and Assistant Research Professor Andrew Buck discuss the simulated data they're using to train artificial intelligence (AI). A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping to lead artificial intelligence (AI) into a new era by foregoing real-world data in favor of simulated environments. “State-of-the-art AI is based on a [...]
Army Research Lab internship part of ongoing research around drones

Army Research Lab internship part of ongoing research around drones

Professor Kannappan Palaniappan and PhD students Jaired Collins and Tim Krock in Arizona, where they used drones to collect data for the Department of Defense. A Mizzou Engineering graduate student has returned from a two-month internship at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, Maryland, where he investigated best practices and use cases around lightweight [...]
New protein prediction tool could accelerate biological discoveries

New protein prediction tool could accelerate biological discoveries

A Mol* (Sehnal et al. (2021)) visualization of interacting protein chains (PDB ID: 3H11). A Mizzou Engineering team has released new software that will allow computers to automatically predict protein interactions. At the heart of the DeepInteract system is the Geometric Transformer, an algorithm specifically designed for learning from 3D protein shapes, which in turn [...]
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 [...]
Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

Figure (a) Flow of EMG signal from participant to robotic arm. Figure (b) Hand motions used and the corresponding motion of the robotic arm. A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a way to control a robot just by moving your hands. What makes the work especially unique is that researchers only used one pair of [...]
Optimal break times improve work performance, study shows

Optimal break times improve work performance, study shows

Workers who perform routine tasks do so faster and with fewer errors if they take breaks at the right times, a Mizzou Engineering team has found. And those optimal break times depend on the intensity of the task. Jung Hyup Kim, an associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, and Vitor De Oliveira Vargas, [...]

Mizzou Engineer solving complex problems during internship at Arm

A Mizzou Engineering student is conducting an internship this summer at Arm, a leading semiconductor and software design company. Specifically, Arun George Zachariah is designing frameworks to optimize the complex workloads involved in infrastructure research using multi-core Arm processors. “I am able to do a deep dive into core systems at the architecture level,” he [...]
Using AI to Generate Holograms in Everyday Settings

Using AI to Generate Holograms in Everyday Settings

Visualization of the optimized phase delays, the output of the model and the ideal output of holograms. Imagine being able to see a hologram of the person you’re talking to on your cell phone. Sound futuristic? Mizzou Engineers are finding ways to someday make that a reality. A research team is studying how artificial intelligence [...]
