Guidoboni shares intersections of engineering, precision health

Associate Dean for Research Giovanna Guidoboni presents at the NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series. From the development of home sensors that monitor vital signs to computational modeling of the human brain, there are numerous intersections between engineering and health care. That’s why Associate Dean for Research Giovanna Guidoboni urged faculty across campus to partner with [...]
Team designs model to automatically detect shadows in aerial images

Team designs model to automatically detect shadows in aerial images

Examples of automatically labeling shadows in an image. 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 their findings at the International Conference on Computer Vision [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Mizzou Engineering hosts 50th AIPR Workshop

Mizzou Engineering hosts 50th AIPR Workshop

Filiz Bunyak and Kannappan Palaniappan with the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Mizzou and Stefan Jaeger from the National Institutes of Health. When it comes to medical imaging, a picture is worth a thousand words — as long as you have the ability to analyze it accurately. One of the goals of this [...]
Mizzou Engineer develops software tool to investigate root growth

Mizzou Engineer develops software tool to investigate root growth

Arabidopsis thaliana roots growing in culture. A Mizzou Engineer has developed a software tool that could give farmers greener thumbs. The tool could help enable them to develop crop cultivars that are drought resistant, ensuring roots can reach falling water tables, adapt to warmer temperatures and be more resilient to environmental changes. Kannappan Palaniappan, a [...]
Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

In one difficult example, the CIVALab AI software was able to estimate the age of each person correctly without error. Mizzou Engineers have developed a two-stage computational model that can accurately predict someone’s age based off a single facial image. The system earned the team third place at the Guess the Age contest, part of [...]
Team uses machine learning to predict the properties of simulated carbon nanotube arrays

Team uses machine learning to predict the properties of simulated carbon nanotube arrays

Image of nanotube forest micropillars. The research team is now growing carbon nanotubes in the Advanced Nanostructures Lab. Image captured by Ramakrishna Surya a PhD student in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Carbon nanotubes have the potential to provide lightweight, flexible materials that could revolutionize the world. In their perfect form, these molecules — which are [...]
Proposed tool would give users control of social media images

Proposed tool would give users control of social media images

Imagine unexpectedly seeing yourself in a publicly shared photo on social media. Maybe you don’t want anyone to know you’re on vacation for security reasons but get captured on the beach in a stranger’s family photo. Or in a crowd at a sporting event when you called in sick that day. Or maybe it’s just [...]
