Researchers using machine learning to transcript centuries-old scripts
A University of Missouri research team has proved that a machine can be trained to decipher centuries-old script. Now, they want to see if that model is smart enough to read other handwritten documents from the era without as much human assistance.
Researcher continues work to decode genome sequences
In the future, hospitals and clinics may be able to better manage diseases by pinpointing exactly how an individual’s body will respond to treatment. But first, they need a fast, efficient and secure way to analyze DNA, or human genome sequences. Enter Praveen Rao, an associate professor with joint appointments in Health Management & Informatics…
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.
A faster ‘code breaker’ to analyze human DNA
Mizzou researchers are developing a free, online resource that could help scientists accelerate their discoveries for various human diseases.
Computer science students receive UPE Scholarships
Two students from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science were awarded scholarships from Upsilon Pi Epsilon.
Mizzou Engineer solving complex problems during internship at Arm
A Mizzou Engineering student is conducting an internship this summer at Arm, a leading semiconductor and software design company. Specifically, Arun George Zachariah is designing frameworks to optimize the complex workloads involved in infrastructure research using multi-core Arm processors.
Using blockchain to streamline supply chains
A Mizzou Engineering researcher is part of team proposing a new way to use blockchain technology to streamline supply chains. Blockchain is a decentralized database that allows multiple stakeholders to access and share information in a secure, transparent manner. Users can provide information to the decentralized database; however, they cannot tamper with data once it…

Rao Accepted as Senior Member of ACM
Praveen Rao has been accepted as a Senior Member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
Mizzou Engineer Using Machine Learning to Translate Historical Script
What do you do with 200,000 handwritten historical records nobody can read? Call an engineer. That’s what Viviana Grieco did when she needed help decoding a collection of 17th Century notary records from Argentina. Now, she and Praveen Rao, an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science and health management and informatics at Mizzou, are using machine learning to translate these texts.
