Civil Engineering team develops realistic artificial data set for road safety studies
A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping artificial intelligence (AI) can be leveraged to prevent vehicle crashes in the future. To that end, they’ve developed realistic artificial data sets (RAD) that can be used to train machines to predict the factors that cause wrecks. These data sets are now available through the U.S. Department of Transportation. The three-year $1.1M project was supported by the US DOT’s Exploratory Advance Research Program.

Research Team Training AI to Better Detect Small Objects Shang working with Missouri
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is good at recognizing a single bird in an image. Where it falls short is when it tries to identify hundreds of tiny birds in an aerial photo. Professor Yi Shang and his research team have been working for three years to see where AI can improve its vision when it comes to small objects.
