Researchers training machines to recognize vocal fatigue

Even before COVID-19 had them speaking up in online classrooms or projecting their voices from behind masks, teachers were at high risk of vocal fatigue. This condition can cause persistent hoarseness, throat pain and permanent damage to the vocal cords. Currently, diagnosing vocal fatigue requires an in-person consultation. But someday, a wearable device or smart [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
