Mizzou Engineering paper among IEEE top 10 featured articles

In the IEEE paper, Professor Dominique Ho outlines a more rigorous process that allows machines to better recognize elliptical shapes in images. A Mizzou Engineer has helped devise a way for machines to better see and detect objects that have elliptical shape — earning him and co-authors a spot in a top academic journal. The [...]

Mizzou Engineer develops way for robots to navigate complex spaces

Robots such as autonomous vacuums have limitations when it comes to understanding a room's geometry. A Mizzou Engineer has developed a new way to help robots better navigate complicated environments. Right now, robot navigation relies on camera images or sensors that detect light and objects. But they may not work well in a low-light/dark environment, [...]

Machines Can Explain Decisions Through Images, Researchers Find

Three sub-images of a traffic sign as viewed by computer vision. The first sub-image is the original observed by the machine through a typical camera. The second and third sub-images are qualitative results from two different algorithms illustrating what is important to the machine about the traffic sign. Machines have the ability to tell humans [...]
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

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 [...]

Mapping the Cities of the World One Building at a Time from Space

The team used medium-resolution images to try to identify buildings from satellite images (ground-truth in the middle and algorithm results on the right). A group of four computer science PhD students in the Computational Imaging and VisAnalysis (CIVA) Lab: Rina Bao, Imad Toubal,  YangYang Wang and Noor Al-Shakarji at Mizzou Engineering took the top spot [...]
Keller Receives Top Award from IEEE

Keller Receives Top Award from IEEE

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Jim Keller gave a keynote talk at the International Symposium on Information Technology Convergence in Jeju Island, South Korea, in 2018. Jim Keller—an emeritus professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science—has received a top award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world’s largest [...]
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 [...]
Aktar’s promising work leads to first-ever EWF fellowship

Aktar’s promising work leads to first-ever EWF fellowship

Rumana Aktar wanted to work with a faculty researcher who was doing cutting-edge work in the area of computer vision, and she found what she was looking for in MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Interim Chair Kannappan Palaniappan. Her master’s thesis and current work as a doctoral student has garnered attention, and Aktar recently was selected as the first-ever recipient of the Executive Women’s Forum (EWF) Fellowship.
