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.
Genome Sequences Could Be Key to COVID-19
The secret to surviving COVID-19 could be locked in our DNA. Researchers are analyzing genome sequences to find clues about why some people are more susceptible to the virus. Right now, doing that work comes with a hefty price tag. But Praveen Rao is developing a way for more scientists to unlock that information for free.
