Robotics Expert: Gen Z Will Usher in Era of Advanced Robots

Today’s robots are good at performing single tasks. You can buy an autonomous robot, for instance, to vacuum your house. A true single helper robot that can vacuum, cook and wash the dishes? That could be a while, but Dale Musser believes Generation Z will usher in the era of advanced robotics. “This is the [...]

Robotics Expert: New Type of Computing Needed for AI Revolution

Robots today may look human-like, but it will take a new type of computing for true artificial intelligence to be a reality, Gui DeSouza says. Robotics have come a long way since Gui DeSouza was defending his dissertation on automated systems for automotive production lines in the 1990s. But he believes it will take a [...]

Grant from the Army Research Office Enables New Generation of Multispectral Infrared Imagers

This graphic shows four different metasurface integrated microbolometers with different response. A Mizzou Engineer and collaborator at the University of Notre Dame have received a grant from the Army Research Office to enable a new generation of multispectral infrared (IR) imagers. Mahmoud Almasri, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science (EECS), is working [...]
IT Students to be Among First to Use New 5G Lab

IT Students to be Among First to Use New 5G Lab

Fifth-generation wireless technology is poised to transform our daily lives. How? That’s a question Mizzou researchers will begin investigating in an innovative new 5G lab opening on campus later this year. MU and AT&T are collaborating on the lab in Cornell Hall, which will bring 5G+ millimeter wave capability to campus. Fang Wang, an assistant [...]
Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects

Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects

Professor Yi Shang and team are developing a deep learning system that will better identify small objects such as waterfowl in images.   Artificial Intelligence (AI) is good at recognizing a single bird in an image. Where it falls short is when it tries to identify hundreds of tiny birds in an aerial photo. Professor [...]
A New Way to Visualize Mountains of Biological Data

A New Way to Visualize Mountains of Biological Data

This is a general example of a type of visual that a graph neural network can create with provided biological data.   By Eric Stann | MU News Bureau  Studying genetic material on a cellular level, such as single-cell RNA-sequencing, can provide scientists with a detailed, high-resolution view of biological processes at work. This level [...]
