Mizzou Engineers Develop New AI Advisor

Want your smartphone to find a restaurant? No problem. Want artificial intelligence to help you plan a healthy diet on a grocery budget of $400 a month? You’re on your own. But research around artificial intelligence happening at Mizzou Engineering may change that. Associate Professor Prasad Calyam and his students from Electrical Engineering and Computer Science are developing an AI advisor that could help smartphones talk you through the tough questions.

NSF REU puts students at computing’s cutting edge

Mizzou Engineering is proud of its tradition of giving undergraduates real-world lab experience through undergraduate research. In fact, Mizzou is listed as one of the top 10 universities in the country for undergraduate research. And, each summer, MU and Mizzou Engineering extend that tradition to students from across the country through the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.

Panacea’s Cloud ready for prime time

Real-time data and information sharing is critical for first responders, especially in situations that don’t allow for ready-made internet access. And after years of research supported by the Coulter Translational Partnership (TP) Program and the National Science Foundation, coupled with a recent market research, an interdisciplinary Mizzou team has the solution.

Mizzou Engineering team building cloud computing ‘blueprints’

Many companies and researchers need cloud computing resources with various levels of computing power and security capabilities. But in several situations, the needs of similar companies or researchers mirror each other. So instead of taking the time and energy to build from scratch, how can cloud providers help their users build from “blueprints?” Mizzou Engineers have taken a new innovative and massive step toward that goal.
