Mizzou Engineering team takes third at Guess the Age competition

In one difficult example, the CIVALab AI software was able to estimate the age of each person correctly without error. Mizzou Engineers have developed a two-stage computational model that can accurately predict someone’s age based off a single facial image. The system earned the team third place at the Guess the Age contest, part of [...]

Research team releases ground-breaking findings around topology optimization of structures subjected to dynamic loads

Giraldo-Londoño A Mizzou Engineer was part of a research team that has released ground-breaking findings that could improve the longevity and durability of bridges, buildings and other structures. Oliver Giraldo-Londoño, the James W. and Joan M. O’Neill Faculty Scholar in Engineering, and collaborators from Georgia Institute of Technology and Sandia National Laboratories, found a way [...]
Study explores ways to help emergency rooms better manage demand

Study explores ways to help emergency rooms better manage demand

Emergency rooms across the country are strained as they see an influx of people experiencing COVID-19 symptoms alongside patients needing other types of immediate care. Now, a Mizzou Engineering team is proposing a model that could help emergency departments better manage unexpected demand. Associate Professor Ron McGarvey, Assistant Professor Kangwon Seo and PhD student Zeynab [...]
Designing ‘smart’ security for smart devices

Designing ‘smart’ security for smart devices

By Eric Stann | MU News Bureau Modern society is inundated with different types of smart devices designed to make people’s lives easier, from virtual assistants to household appliances and health-monitoring devices — not to mention smartphones. While each device has some amount of built-in security to help combat the threat of cyberattacks, the increased [...]

Mizzou Engineer working to improve methods to detect geological, manmade underground features

Left undetected, sinkholes, caves and other underground features can wreak havoc on building and road foundations. But finding those voids is challenging because of varying topography and soil conditions. Now, a Mizzou Engineer is working with Marshall University in West Virginia to improve methods to identify geological and manmade features dozens of feet below the [...]

Mizzou Engineer studies perceptions of autonomous transportation

Autonomous mobility services include public transportation, as well as self-driving cars. Photo by Brock Wegner | Unsplash Before the public will fully embrace autonomous mobility services, companies need to increase people’s trust in the technology. That’s one take-away from a case study Assistant Professor Sabreena Anowar and colleagues conducted in Singapore. Anowar, who has joint [...]
Augmented reality system uses GPS to improve user experience

Augmented reality system uses GPS to improve user experience

An example of what students would see within an augmented reality educational experience. In the proposed system, students could turn their heads to see additional content. In theory, augmented reality (AR) has the potential to transform online learning, allowing students to interact with virtual components in their own physical settings. In reality, however, the technology [...]
Mizzou Engineering team discovers method to control sound waves in the fourth dimension

Mizzou Engineering team discovers method to control sound waves in the fourth dimension

Professor Guoliang Huang and graduate student Hui Chen show off the three-dimensional structure they created to observe audio waves in the fourth dimension. Using a type of material that conducts electricity on the edges while insulating the inside, a Mizzou Engineering team has discovered a way to control sound waves beyond our three-dimensional environment. Guoliang [...]

Mizzou Engineering paper among IEEE top 10 featured articles

In the IEEE paper, Professor Dominique Ho outlines a more rigorous process that allows machines to better recognize elliptical shapes in images. A Mizzou Engineer has helped devise a way for machines to better see and detect objects that have elliptical shape — earning him and co-authors a spot in a top academic journal. The [...]
