Researchers use connectome to reconcile seemingly inconsistent neuroimaging findings — ScienceDaily

Already affecting more than five million Americans older than 65, Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise and expected to impact more than 13 million people by 2050. Over the last three decades, researchers have relied on neuroimaging — brain scans such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET) — to study Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Yet these studies have so far failed to deliver consistent findings, leaving scientists with no clear path to finding treatments…

Mizzou’s Ma, Pinhero receive prestigious R&D 100 awards

MU’s College of Engineering has not one, but two faculty members whose companies were honored as R&D 100 finalists, an international recognition given to only 100 companies worldwide. President and Co-Founder Hongbin “Bill” Ma of ThermAvant Technologies and Co-Founder Patrick Pinhero of RedWave Energy are professors at the College whose innovations have made monumental impacts in the energy industry. Ma R&D 100 finalists are chosen from amongst the top international innovators by a panel of 50 judges who review each…

First BME degree recipients headline Fall 2018 commencement

A total of 296 undergraduates and 85 graduate students became the next Mizzou Made engineering leaders at MU Engineering’s Fall 2018 Commencement Ceremony on Friday at the Hearnes Center. Photo by Shelby O’Keefe. A total of 296 undergraduates and 85 graduate students became the next Mizzou Made engineering leaders at MU Engineering’s Fall 2018 Commencement Ceremony on Friday at the Hearnes Center. Among those 296 were the first four graduates of Mizzou Engineering’s brand new Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program.…

KotlinPoet 1.0 is here! – Square Corner Blog – Medium

KotlinPoet is a collection of Kotlin API that makes generating .kt files easy. It’s inspired by JavaPoet, a Java code generation library, which powers a number of widely used frameworks, such as Dagger. KotlinPoet has been around for over a year and is used by a number of popular libraries, such as Moshi and SQLDelight. It’s sweet, it’s battle-tested, it’s ready for prime-time, and today we’re announcing KotlinPoet 1.0! 🎉 Hello World, KotlinPoet! 👋 Here’s a HelloWorld file from KotlinPoet’s README…

Code Analysis – Testing & Debugging

Having a successful app development or software construction project is only possible with a well thought out plan. If you are working with a number of other developers, establishing things like what programming language to use and what style of coding you will adhere to is a must. If you are working for a larger company that utilizes the power of access rights management, making sure you have access to all of the resources you need is essential. Nearly 70…

Using Economic Graph Data to Power the LinkedIn Salary Product

The LinkedIn Salary product enables users to explore compensation insights (e.g., percentiles and histograms) for different titles, locations, and companies. The insights are based on the compensation data that we have been collecting from corresponding LinkedIn members (using a give-to-get model), which are then processed using techniques such as encryption, access control, de-identification, thresholding, aggregation, and outlier detection to ensure member privacy and data quality. Due to privacy requirements, the salary modeling system can only access cohort-level data containing aggregated…

MU Engineering Ph.D. student earns NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

“My research proposal is about building models of the brain, so that’s kind of like creating a video game where you can go in and explore the brain without actually doing it experimentally,” Ben Latimer explained. “There are a lot of things about the brain that we want to know, but we can’t necessarily do experimentally. So, we do that through computation.” The prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship looks to award academics for broad impacts and intellectual merit…

For these critically endangered marine turtles, climate change could be a knockout blow — ScienceDaily

Hawksbill turtles aren’t the only marine turtles threatened by the destabilizing effects of climate change, but a new study from researchers at Florida State University shows that this critically endangered species could be at particular risk. In a study published in the journal PLOS ONE, researchers from FSU’s Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science suggest that projected increases in air temperatures, rainfall inundation and blistering solar radiation could significantly reduce hawksbill hatching success at a selection of major nesting…

New study shows how newly created cardiac muscle cells can be made to pump together — ScienceDaily

A team of Rutgers scientists, including Leonard Lee and Shaohua Li, have taken an important step toward the goal of making diseased hearts heal themselves — a new model that would reduce the need for bypass surgery, heart transplants or artificial pumping devices. The study, recently published in Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, involved removing connective tissue cells from a human heart, “reverse-engineering” them into heart stem cells, then “re-engineering” them into heart muscle cells. The Rutgers team’s true…

Open-sourcing PyText for faster NLP development

To make it easier to build and deploy natural language processing (NLP) systems, we are open-sourcing PyText, a modeling framework that blurs the boundaries between experimentation and large-scale deployment. PyText is a library built on PyTorch, our unified, open source deep learning framework. It offers several benefits for NLP development: A simplified workflow for faster experimentation. Access to a rich set of prebuilt model architectures and utilities for text processing and vocabulary management to facilitate large-scale deployment. The ability to…
