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.

Mizzou Engineer Applies Love of Film to Color Research Project

Junior Josh Ward has always been a movie buff. So when he had the opportunity to use what he’s learned in his computer science courses to help analyze award-winning films, he was thrilled to get involved. Ward is now part of a research team looking into mathematically quantifying color palettes from 50 movies that have won an Academy Award or been runner-up for best cinematography over the past 10 years.
