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…
Engineers develop robot to automatically inspect heat exchangers
A Mizzou Engineering team is designing a robot that can automatically inspect heat exchangers, which are critical to generating electricity.
Using AI to analyze large amounts of biological data
Researchers at the University of Missouri are applying a form of artificial intelligence (AI) — previously used to analyze how National Basketball Association (NBA) players move their bodies — to now help scientists develop new drug therapies for medical treatments targeting cancers and other diseases.
Mizzou Engineers help locate remote bomas in East Africa through geospatial AI
Mizzou Engineers have helped a non-profit agency by using artificial intelligence to locate bomas, or small huts, in remote areas of Eastern Africa.
Buttlar gives keynote at International Data Science for Pavements Symposium
A civil engineering professor gave the keynote address around using big data to inform transportation decisions.
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.
Researchers use machine learning to decipher 17th Century handwriting
University of Missouri researchers are closer to deciphering historical scripts that could shed light on life and business in 17th Century Latin America.
CEE’s Shoman wins Intelligent Transportation System research competition
Civil and environmental engineering doctoral student Maged Shoman won the research poster competition at the Intelligent Transportation Society (ITS) Heartland annual meeting in November 2021. His poster, “Evaluation of Connected Vehicles Data for Congestion & Incident Detection,” highlighted how this pilot project used data from…
