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 [...]
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 [...]
Civil engineers use artificial intelligence to classify pavement cracks

Civil engineers use artificial intelligence to classify pavement cracks

Researchers are using artificial intelligence to classify various types of pavement cracks, such as these examples from Missouri roadways. Traffic engineers could have a smarter way of identifying asphalt problems and prioritizing pavement projects, thanks to cutting-edge research from Mizzou Engineering. The team is training a machine to automatically classify types of cracks and potholes [...]
Research team develops pandemic-resilient supply chain model

Research team develops pandemic-resilient supply chain model

A Mizzou Engineering team has developed a model that manufacturers can use to operate more strategically and efficiently during global pandemics. Associate Professor Ron McGarvey and PhD candidate Mohamed Salama in the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department outlined the proposal for a resilient supply chain during a global pandemic in the International Journal of [...]
Researchers study effectiveness of rumble strips in work zones

Researchers study effectiveness of rumble strips in work zones

Mizzou Engineers are helping state transportation officials investigate the effectiveness of temporary rumble strips in work zones. Rumble strips are safety features placed over the road to alert motorists by causing an audible vibration transmitted from vehicle wheels. The Missouri Department of Transportation uses them ahead of work zones, said Henry Brown, principal investigator of [...]
Mizzou Engineer develops software tool to investigate root growth

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 [...]
Research team releases ground-breaking findings around topology optimization of structures subjected to dynamic loads

Research team releases ground-breaking findings around topology optimization of structures subjected to dynamic loads

Giraldo-Londoño A Mizzou Engineer was part of a research team that has released ground-breaking findings that could improve the longevity and durability of bridges, buildings and other structures. Oliver Giraldo-Londoño, the James W. and Joan M. O’Neill Faculty Scholar in Engineering, and collaborators from Georgia Institute of Technology and Sandia National Laboratories, found a way [...]
Study explores ways to help emergency rooms better manage demand

Study explores ways to help emergency rooms better manage demand

Emergency rooms across the country are strained as they see an influx of people experiencing COVID-19 symptoms alongside patients needing other types of immediate care. Now, a Mizzou Engineering team is proposing a model that could help emergency departments better manage unexpected demand. Associate Professor Ron McGarvey, Assistant Professor Kangwon Seo and PhD student Zeynab [...]
