Engineering team places first, third at inaugural segmentation challenge

A Mizzou Engineering team took first and third place at a new competition aimed to advance methods to not only detect but also trace the 3D shape of a specific type of brain lesion in newborns. The BONBID-HIE Lesion Segmentation Challenge was part of the International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2023) and sponsored by Boston Children’s Hospital and its Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging Developmental Science Center and Harvard Medical School.

Machines Can Explain Decisions Through Images, Researchers Find

Machines have the ability to tell humans why they made a decision based on how they prioritize features of what they see. That’s the take-away from a paper Mizzou Engineers have had accepted to an international conference this summer.

Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects Shang working with Missouri

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 Yi Shang and his research team have been working for three years to see where AI can improve its vision when it comes to small objects.
