Two Mizzou Engineers Named Goldwater Scholars

Two Mizzou Engineers Named Goldwater Scholars

Rebecca Shyu and Brandon Lee both received the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship. Two Mizzou Engineering students have been named Goldwater Scholars, making the University of Missouri the only school in the state with more than one recipient. Rebecca Shyu is majoring in computer science with an interest in bioinformatics. Brandon Lee is a double major in [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
MU Licenses Patented Screening Technology for Autism

MU Licenses Patented Screening Technology for Autism

From the Office of Research and Economic Development Autism spectrum disorders (ASD), which can cause social, behavioral and communication challenges, often are diagnosed after a lengthy and often subjective assessment process. However, MU’s patented screening technology licensed recently by Kansas City company PANDA Healthcare Technologies, could soon be a game changer for families. Studies show […]

Engineers Explore Algorithms, Materials to Improve AI Vision

Engineers Explore Algorithms, Materials to Improve AI Vision

Mizzou Engineering researchers are investigating how to engineer materials to improve a machine’s ability to see and understand physical objects. The problem is two-sided. On one hand, the team needs to figure out why artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms sometimes wrongly recognize or fail to correctly recognize objects in images. Ultimately, those algorithms control the behavior [...]

Mapping the Cities of the World One Building at a Time from Space

The team used medium-resolution images to try to identify buildings from satellite images (ground-truth in the middle and algorithm results on the right). A group of four computer science PhD students in the Computational Imaging and VisAnalysis (CIVA) Lab: Rina Bao, Imad Toubal,  YangYang Wang and Noor Al-Shakarji at Mizzou Engineering took the top spot [...]
Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay

Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay

Sometimes, before you can think big, you have to think small. After all, you can’t tackle the big problems without interacting with the microscopic molecules, electrons and atoms that make up our world. Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay, professor, researcher and inventor of teeny-tiny technologies. Gangopadhyay has built a career around detecting and interacting with nanoparticles. Today, [...]
Detecting COVID-19 with a sticker on your skin

Detecting COVID-19 with a sticker on your skin

Contact: Eric Stann, 573-882-3346, StannE@missouri.edu   Zheng Yan One day, a wearable, bioelectronic device could wirelessly transmit a person’s vital signs — potentially providing critical information for early detection of health issues such as COVID-19 or heart disease — to a healthcare provider, eliminating the need for an in-person visit while also saving lives. The […]
