Mizzou Engineering team develops tool to assess diabetes risk

Screenshots of the proposed app, which uses machine learning to predict risk of diabetes based on a questionnaire. Mizzou Engineers are bringing artificial intelligence services to the end user through edge intelligence, developing a smartphone app that lets you determine your risk for diabetes. Unlike other tools available, the system would allow you to enter…

Mizzou Engineer using machine learning to solve space debris problem

Companies are launching satellites into orbit at a dizzying pace with no plans to clean them up once they’ve competed their missions. That means dead satellites are floating in space with no one controlling them, leaving them vulnerable to collisions. “Space is becoming more and more crowded,” said Ming Xin, professor of mechanical and aerospace…

Adolescent psychological well-being tied to adult risk of cardiovascular disease, study finds

Scientists have known for years that a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be lowered with lifestyle changes such as modifying diet, exercise, alcohol and tobacco use. Now Anand Chockalingam and Sharan Srinivas at the University of Missouri demonstrate in a new study that a long-term association also exists between an adolescent’s psychological well-being and their risk of CVD as an adult.

Engineer uses advanced deep learning to predict where proteins will localize within cells

A Mizzou Engineer is developing computational tools that can be used to predict where proteins will localize within a cell. Using highly advanced deep learning, the resource could help researchers better understand how proteins function or, if positioned incorrectly within a cell, misfire and cause problems.
