Student team devises way to control robotic arm using hand gestures

Figure (a) Flow of EMG signal from participant to robotic arm. Figure (b) Hand motions used and the corresponding motion of the robotic arm. A Mizzou Engineering team has devised a way to control a robot just by moving your hands. What makes the work especially unique is that researchers only used one pair of [...]
Researchers training machines to recognize vocal fatigue

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 [...]

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 [...]
Smart appointment system could decrease patient wait time

Smart appointment system could decrease patient wait time

We’ve all been there. You schedule a doctor’s appointment for 10 a.m. and show up on time only to sit in the waiting room for 45 minutes. This not only frustrates patients, it also costs clinics money. That’s why a Mizzou Engineer has developed a scheduling system that uses machine learning to more efficiently book [...]
Using AI to Generate Holograms in Everyday Settings

Using AI to Generate Holograms in Everyday Settings

Visualization of the optimized phase delays, the output of the model and the ideal output of holograms. Imagine being able to see a hologram of the person you’re talking to on your cell phone. Sound futuristic? Mizzou Engineers are finding ways to someday make that a reality. A research team is studying how artificial intelligence [...]

Computer science students at Mizzou Engineering have come up with a way to use machine learning to buy and sell stocks. They developed the system, MarketFlow, this semester as part of a year-long senior [...]
Mizzou Engineering Launches Certificate in AI and Machine Learning

Mizzou Engineering Launches Certificate in AI and Machine Learning

Mizzou Engineering has launched a Certificate in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). The graduate-level program aims to help students and professionals gain the skills they need to compete in an AI-driven job market. “AI is now used in an array of everyday products,” said Yi Shang, director of graduate studies for electrical engineering [...]
Aerial Reconnaissance

Aerial Reconnaissance

Currently, when the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wants to keep track of the waterfowl population in the state or monitor wetlands for invasive plant species, they send a natural resource manager into the field to do a manual count, which is very labor intensive and not very accurate. Other methods to monitor bird populations […]
