PupilScreen aims to allow parents, coaches, medics to detect concussion, TBIs with a phone

The UW researchers initially tested PupilScreen with a 3-D printed box that controls the eye’s exposure to light. They are now training their deep learning algorithms to produce similar results with the smartphone camera alone. Credit: Dennis Wise/University of Washington University of Washington researchers are developing the first smartphone app that is capable of objectively detecting concussion and other traumatic brain injuries in the field: on the sidelines of a sports game, on a battlefield or in the home of…

High-frequency chip brings researchers closer to next generation technology

A new high-frequency chip developed at UC Davis uses a phased array to transmit and receive millimeter waves. The technology could increase data transfer rates. In this photo, a prototype chip is held by graduate student Hossein Jalili. Credit: Maria Ines Perez-Vargas/UC Davis novel, high-frequency electronic chip potentially capable of transmitting tens of gigabits of data per second—a rate that is orders of magnitude above the fastest internet speeds available today—has been developed by engineers at the University of California,…

Build Your Data Science Team Like a Swiss Army Knife

Though far from a reality in many fields, it is now widely accepted that building a diverse team will make your organization more successful. Many insightful articles and research studies have driven this point home, focusing on diversity axes like gender, ethnicity, culture, age, orientation, and physical ability. Those dimensions are all important. If you participate in the hiring process for your team, and haven’t taken the time to read about why diversity is critical, you absolutely must. Like, now.…

Greening the concrete jungle—how to make environmentally friendly cement

With some tweaks to the recipe, cement and concrete can be made kinder to the planet. Credit: Postman Photos/Shutterstock.com Cement is the world’s most widely used material apart from water, largely because it is the key ingredient in concrete, the world’s favourite building material. But with cement’s success comes a huge amount of greenhouse emissions. For every tonne of cement produced in Australia, 0.82 tonnes of CO₂ is released. That might not sound like much, especially when compared with the…

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Assistant Professor Prasad Calyam and his graduate students Roshan Neupane and Ronny Bazan Antequera organized the third-annual Hacker Trackers summer camp, held in July as part of the University of Missouri Extension’s Summers@Mizzou program. Calyam organizes the camp as part of his community outreach and STEM…

#Chemsafety programming at #ACSDC | The Safety Zone

Posted By Jyllian Kemsley on Aug 17, 2017 in ACS National Meeting, Featured | The 254th ACS National Meeting starts on Sunday in Washington, D.C. Here’s what’s planned for chemical and laboratory safety; the Division of Chemical Health & Safety has its usual CHAS-At-A-Glance ready for printing. You can also find CHAS and the Committee on Chemical Safety in the Expo at booth 1038. I will be giving two talks at the meeting. I’ve highlighted them with…

MU Engineering alumnus facilitates cutting-edge workstation donation

Luke Manier (center), a 2001 graduate from the MU Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, facilitated the donation of equipment for 15 modern industrial automation workstations, including components to aid in the construction of two advanced motion control systems, from his company, Rockwell Automation.

The MU College of Engineering’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) recently wrapped up its 10-week summer session, with brilliant students from around the country completing work on cutting-edge computer science and Big Data projects. A…

DC Hot Stick developed for first responder, worker safety

ORNL’s Bruce Warmack (left) and Nance Ericson display an early prototype of the DC Hot Stick. Credit: Carlos Jones, ORNL/Dept. of Energy With more volts than ever before in electric vehicles (EVs) and on solar-paneled rooftops, first responder and electrical worker safety is a growing concern. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are addressing the challenge with the development of a probe to accurately detect direct-current (DC) energy. The DC “Hot Stick” probe designed under…

Night vision for bird- and bat-friendly offshore wind power

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s ThermalTracker software analyzes thermal video to help birds and bats near offshore wind farms. Three birds are seen flying offshore in this screenshot of the thermal video that PNNL’s software analyzes. Credit: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory The same technology that enables soldiers to see in the dark can also help protect birds and bats near offshore wind turbines. Night vision goggles use thermal imaging, which captures infrared light that’s invisible to the human eye. Now, researchers…
