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 [...]

Students Now Putting Spot the Robot to Work

Watch as Sophomore Stephen Bowen explains the programming used to code Spot. | Video courtesy of Kristofferson Culmer It’s not quite dancing in viral videos just yet, but Mizzou Engineering’s Spot is getting a little smarter each day, thanks to an inaugural group of student programmers.  Spot is an agile mobile robot from Boston Dynamics [...]

See Spot Work: Spot the Robot Now Embedded in IT Program

Kristofferson Culmer takes Spot the robot on a tour of Lafferre Hall. See Spot walk. See Spot run. Now, students in the Information Technology Program at Mizzou Engineering are seeing how they can make Spot perform more complicated tasks. In this case, Spot isn’t a dog from a classic children’s book, but rather an agile mobile robot from Boston Dynamics. The IT [...]
