Robotics Expert: New Type of Computing Needed for AI Revolution

Robotics Expert: New Type of Computing Needed for AI Revolution

Robots today may look human-like, but it will take a new type of computing for true artificial intelligence to be a reality, Gui DeSouza says. Robotics have come a long way since Gui DeSouza was defending his dissertation on automated systems for automotive production lines in the 1990s. But he believes it will take a [...]

NSF CAREER grant to help bridge technology and transportation

  Yaw Adu-Gyamfi, assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering (CEE), recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) grant. This award is to further his current work with his DASH platform plus additional proposals with deep learning and adaptive computing to design management solutions for transportation systems. “The DASH project […]

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 [...]
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 [...]
Building Smarter AI

Building Smarter AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson is working to improve the way artificial intelligence responds to environments. Artificial intelligence is smart, but it’s also too trusting. Currently, AI blindly trusts sensor data and decisions derived from that data. Now, Derek Anderson, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, is trying to figure out how to [...]
Mizzou Engineering Launches Certificate in AI and Machine Learning

Mizzou Engineering Launches Certificate in AI and Machine Learning

Mizzou Engineering has launched a Certificate in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The graduate-level program aims to help students and professionals gain the skills they need to compete in an AI-driven job market. “AI is now used in an array of everyday products,” said Yi Shang, director of graduate studies for electrical engineering [...]
DeSouza Serving as Associate Editor of Transactions on AI

DeSouza Serving as Associate Editor of Transactions on AI

A Mizzou Engineer is helping determine which papers to include in a new journal on artificial intelligence. Gui DeSouza, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science, was appointed an associate editor for Transactions on Artificial Intelligence (AI) earlier this year. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers plans to launch the journal next [...]
Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the [...]
Computer Science team in Imagine Cup World Championship

Computer Science team in Imagine Cup World Championship

Mizzou Engineering graduate students Caleb Heinzman, Imad Toubal and Kolton Speer competed in Microsoft's Imagine Cup World Championship on May 19. Thousands of teams from more than 100 countries across the globe competed for a spot in Microsoft’s 2020 Imagine Cup World Championship. In the end, a Mizzou Engineering team was among the final six [...]
