Mizzou Engineering’s Jim Keller invited to give talk at John von Neumann conference
Mizzou Engineering’s Jim Keller has been invited to give a distinguished talk at an international conference celebrating the contributions of John von Neumann, considered one of the greatest minds of the 20th century.
Mizzou Engineer improving algorithms that power self-driving vehicles
Artificial intelligence (AI) makes all sorts of decisions for us. Netflix recommends our next movie. Amazon suggests products based on what’s in our shopping cart. Facebook determines the content that shows up in our feeds. While we have a basic idea of how these algorithms work, most of us don’t need machines to further explain why they are making those conclusions.
Longtime AI researcher stays grounded as new bots turn field upside down
Generative artificial intelligence (AI) systems such as ChatGPT can provide a lot of convincing answers to user queries. What these models can’t do so well is explain how they derived their result and how confident they are in the output. And large language models (LLMs) aren’t the only machines making decisions that impact us. Professor Derek Anderson has been studying complex issues around AI for 20 years.
NSF award allows for adoption of advanced computing, data resources
A Mizzou Engineer is leading a project to improve access to research and educational computing resources needed to take advantage of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML).
Mizzou Engineering team develops video retrieval system based on captioning
t’s not hard to search for a cute cat video on the internet. But if you want to find a video of a cat chasing a dog down a street on a sunny day, it gets trickier. Now, a Mizzou Engineering team has developed a novel system that relies on image captioning to find video clips of specific objects and scenes.
Civil Engineering team develops realistic artificial data set for road safety studies
A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping artificial intelligence (AI) can be leveraged to prevent vehicle crashes in the future. To that end, they’ve developed realistic artificial data sets (RAD) that can be used to train machines to predict the factors that cause wrecks. These data sets are now available through the U.S. Department of Transportation. The three-year $1.1M project was supported by the US DOT’s Exploratory Advance Research Program.
‘Explainable AI’ can efficiently detect augmented/virtual reality cybersickness
Exposure to an augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) environment can cause people to experience cybersickness — a special type of motion sickness with symptoms ranging from dizziness to nausea — and existing research to mitigate the severity of the symptoms often relies upon a one-size-fits-all approach. However, Khaza Anuarul Hoque, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and a team of researchers are working to develop a personalized approach to identifying cybersickness by focusing on the root causes, which can be different for every person.
Mizzou Engineering launching new REU focused on AI, prescriptive analytics
Undergraduate students interested in emerging technologies are invited to apply for a new immersive research program at Mizzou.
AI innovator mentors next generation while breaking new ground
AI is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, and Associate Professor Derek Anderson is at the forefront of AI.
Mizzou team developing AI-based tool to predict trends in steel prices
A multidisciplinary research team at Mizzou is harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to develop a tool that can predict the trend in steel prices.
