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 [...]
Civil Engineer helps MoDOT study New Madrid evacuation routes

Civil Engineer helps MoDOT study New Madrid evacuation routes

Professor Praveen Edara is working with MoDOT to study evacuation plans in New Madrid and surrounding counties. Were a major earthquake to rock the New Madrid fault line in southeast Missouri, it’s likely people would be displaced from their homes. But where would they go and how would they get there? That’s a question a [...]

Mizzou Engineering hosts 50th AIPR Workshop

Filiz Bunyak and Kannappan Palaniappan with the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Mizzou and Stefan Jaeger from the National Institutes of Health. When it comes to medical imaging, a picture is worth a thousand words — as long as you have the ability to analyze it accurately. One of the goals of this [...]
Meet Kevin Gillis

Meet Kevin Gillis

While they apply different skillsets, chemical, biomedical and bioengineering use complementary approaches to solve problems. That’s why Mizzou Engineering combined the departments four years ago, and why it’s critical these areas work together to make advances in energy, health and the environment. Meet Kevin Gillis, a champion of collaborating with others to improve lives. Gillis [...]

EECS department hosts retreat around inclusivity, diversity, equity

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science hosted an Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity workshop on Oct. 18. The half-day event included panel discussions, breakout discussions and a keynote address from former EECS faculty member Gregory Triplett. During opening remarks, Dean Noah Manring reminded EECS faculty of the College’s mission of educational excellence. “We educate [...]
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 [...]
