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 [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
