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…
Team creating system to monitor vital signs, alert patients
A Mizzou Engineering team is developing a system that will monitor vital signs and may someday be able to alert people when they need to seek medical care.
Custom finger clip offers a new way to measure blood pressure, other vitals
Researchers are customizing a commercial finger clip device to provide a rapid, noninvasive way for measuring and continually monitoring blood pressure.
Approximate computing remains vulnerable to attacks; Mizzou Engineers to present findings at IEEE DATE conference
Companies relying on faster, less precise computing to gain energy efficiency still need to be cautious against cyberattacks, Mizzou Engineers have found.
