Mizzou Engineers Develop Algorithms to Organize Streaming Data

Mizzou Engineers Develop Algorithms to Organize Streaming Data

Mizzou Engineers have written new algorithms to better organize, or “cluster,” streaming data. The work has the potential to help businesses better use information coming in constantly or medical providers best respond to ongoing health changes. The goal of clustering is to find meaningful structure within a set of data. But the rise of continuous [...]
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 [...]

Gubera to Screen Joplin Documentary on 10th Anniversary of Tornado

A Mizzou Engineering faculty member will screen his documentary, “Joplin, Missouri: A Tornado Story” this weekend on the 10th anniversary of the storm. Chip Gubera will introduce  the film and answer questions at two showings on Sunday at Bookhouse Cinema in Joplin. Gubera is an assistant professor of professional practice in the Information Technology Program [...]
Accounting for sleep disorders in highway safety

Accounting for sleep disorders in highway safety

People with shift work sleep disorder (SWSD) are three times more likely to crash or be in a near-crash than people without that condition. That’s the take-away from a study on accident causes and sleep disorders conducted by civil and environmental engineering (CEE) professors Praveen Edara and Carlos Sun. In addition, they found that people […]

Meet Ronald McGarvey

Meet Ronald McGarvey

Engineers develop tools to solve big problems such as food production, pollution and pandemics. But it also takes engineering expertise to best use these tools to accomplish goals efficiently. Meet Ron McGarvey, an operations research expert with a mathematical mind and a head for public policy. McGarvey is an associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing [...]
Improving health by improving water filtration

Improving health by improving water filtration

A research team led by Mizzou Engineers recently published an article on how to potentially remove arsenic from ground water more efficiently with less expense for household use. Professor Baolin Deng, with lead author Zhengyang “Philip” Wang, an MU doctorial graduate, produced a proof-of-concept over-the-counter water filter that uses a new mass re-equilibrium process to […]

Machines Can Explain Decisions Through Images, Researchers Find

Machines Can Explain Decisions Through Images, Researchers Find

Three sub-images of a traffic sign as viewed by computer vision. The first sub-image is the original observed by the machine through a typical camera. The second and third sub-images are qualitative results from two different algorithms illustrating what is important to the machine about the traffic sign. Machines have the ability to tell humans [...]
