Team designs model to automatically detect shadows in aerial images

An example of automatically labeling shadows in an image (left) compared to manually annotating the small region. A Mizzou Engineering team has designed a physics-based model to automatically detect shadows in large-scale aerial images — a development that could lead to improvements in self-driving cars, drones and autonomous robotics. The research team published and presented [...]

Team develops method to automatically detect, identify trees

Images showing preliminary results of a Mizzou Engineering team’s methods to automatically identify trees. The green rectangles are predictions of trees generated by a deep neural network predictor, while the red dots are the ground truths of trees provided to the group by Ameren. Mizzou Engineering students are developing innovative methods and software to automatically [...]
Team develops new method to detect cardiovascular dysfunctions

Team develops new method to detect cardiovascular dysfunctions

A Mizzou research team has developed a way to better identify cardiovascular dysfunctions through non-invasive sensors that translate signals from the body into information physicians can use to inform treatment decisions. It’s a novel breakthrough that could improve patient care and also allow individuals to monitor heart conditions from home. The work essentially proves that [...]
Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Mizzou Engineer studies trail bridges as part of E4C Fellowship

Abdul Rashid Mussah studied trail bridges as part of an Engineering 4 Change Fellowship. Trail bridges that connect remote communities are working, a Mizzou Engineer has found. Abdul Rashid Mussah, a PhD candidate in civil engineering, investigated the effectiveness of the structures as part of a prestigious fellowship with Engineering 4 Change. During his five-month [...]
Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

Mizzou Engineers to present at IEEE Blockchain Conference

A Mizzou Engineering team has developed a secure Blockchain platform that insurance companies could use to streamline claims processing. Researchers — under the direction of Associate Professor and Greg L. Gilliom Professor of Cyber Security Prasad Calyam — will present that work at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Blockchain [...]
Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Engineering team develops system to segment, track cells from images

Rina Bao and Noor Al-Shakarji developed a system to segment and track cells from microscopy video images. A Mizzou Engineering team won a Best Paper Award at an international workshop earlier this month. Rina Bao, who just completed her PhD, and PhD student Noor Al-Shakarji received the accolade for developing a two-stream deep learning network [...]
Mizzou Engineering graduate research on display at open house

Mizzou Engineering graduate research on display at open house

Graduate students at Mizzou Engineering conduct their own research, collaborate with peers across campus and develop skills for high-level jobs. Even better? The College helps cover the cost. Those were some of the take-aways from a Graduate Research Open House held Tuesday, Oct. 26. “Graduate school will help you prepare for a rewarding career in […]

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Researchers use simulated environments to train AI

Associate Professor Derek Anderson, PhD candidate Brendan Alvey and Assistant Research Professor Andrew Buck discuss the simulated data they're using to train artificial intelligence (AI). A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping to lead artificial intelligence (AI) into a new era by forgoing real-world data in favor of simulated environments. “State-of-the-art AI is based on a [...]
Army Research Lab internship part of ongoing research around drones

Army Research Lab internship part of ongoing research around drones

Professor Kannappan Palaniappan and PhD students Jaired Collins and Tim Krock in Arizona, where they used drones to collect data for the Department of Defense. A Mizzou Engineering graduate student has returned from a two-month internship at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, Maryland, where he investigated best practices and use cases around lightweight [...]
New protein prediction tool could accelerate biological discoveries

New protein prediction tool could accelerate biological discoveries

A Mol* (Sehnal et al. (2021)) visualization of interacting protein chains (PDB ID: 3H11). A Mizzou Engineering team has released new software that will allow computers to automatically predict protein interactions. At the heart of the DeepInteract system is the Geometric Transformer, an algorithm specifically designed for learning from 3D protein shapes, which in turn [...]
