MU seniors film promo video for ‘Buckle Up, Phone Down’ campaign

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science seniors Cassandra Flores, Adam Goff, Trevor Liptak and Wade Tobin filmed an informational video as part of the Mizzou College of Engineering’s partnership with the Missouri Department of Transportation and Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety’s “Buckle Up, Phone Down” campaign. This video also served as their capstone project, and it featured information from Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Carlos Sun and engineering student Elizabeth Farr, engineering student and Mizzou wrestler Daniel Lewis, and MU Dean…

MU researchers working on groundbreaking VR classroom

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science faculty Prasad Calyam and Henry He, Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Associate Director and Professor of Special Education Janine Stitcher and several graduate students such as Sai Shreya Nuguri are working on vSocial, a cloud-based virtual reality platform intended to create virtual classrooms and curricula for students with autism, particularly those in rural areas with less access to specialized curricula.

Electronic skin allows amputees to ‘feel’ pain and touch

Engineers at the Johns Hopkins University have created an electronic skin and aim to restore the sense of touch through the fingertips of prosthetic hands. Credit: Larry Canner/JHU When Gyorgy Levay lost parts of all four extremities, including most of his left arm, to meningitis in 2010, he resolved to make the best of a bad situation. He mastered his state-of-the-art prosthetic replacements. He switched the focus of his graduate studies from electrical to biomedical engineering. The native Hungarian even…

In June, the College of Engineering played host to the third edition of its National Institutes of Health Brain Initiative Summer Course on Models and Neurobiology, attracting 24 attendees from across the country for a two-week, intensive course on utilizing computer modeling in neurobiology research. Attendees included Ph.D. students, post-docs, faculty members and more from…

Facebook AI Research Expands With New Academic Collaborations – Facebook Code

This article originally appeared on newsroom.fb.com.  We created Facebook AI Research over four years ago to focus on advancing the science and technology of AI, and we’ve always done this by collaborating with local academic communities. FAIR relies on open partnerships to help drive AI forward, where researchers have the freedom to control their own agenda. Ours frequently collaborate with academics from other institutions, and we often provide financial and hardware resources to specific universities. It’s through working together and openly…

Mizzou Engineer bringing deep learning to protein prediction

The technology that powers Siri, Amazon Echo, facial recognition software and more is coming soon to the realm of protein structure prediction. MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Jianlin Cheng and Professor Amarda Shehu of George Mason University recently landed a three-year, $845,283 grant from the National Science Foundation to support their project, “Guiding Exploration of Protein Structure Spaces with Deep Learning.” MU Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Jianlin Cheng and Professor Amarda Shehu of George Mason University…

Armband mimics a person’s touch

Heather Culbertson, an assistant professor in computer science, designed a low-cost haptic sleeve device that simulates human touch. Credit: USC Photo/Caitlin Dawson Imagine a virtual world where someone touches your arm during a conversation and you feel the sensation as though they were with you. At USC’s Department of Computer Science, Assistant Professor Heather Culbertson has developed a new haptic armband that mimics the gestures used in social touch, specifically the sensation of a finger moving along the arm. She…

Splitting energy using singlet fission opens a new route toward OLEDs with high-intensity emission in the near-infrared — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Kyushu University’s Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Research (OPERA) in Japan have demonstrated a way to split energy in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and surpass the 100% limit for exciton production, opening a promising new route for creating low-cost and high-intensity near-infrared light sources for sensing and communications applications. OLEDs use layers of carbon-containing organic molecules to convert electrical charges into light. In normal OLEDs, one positive charge and one negative charge come together on a molecule…

MU Engineering names Islam new EECS Chair – University of Missouri College of Engineering

Syed Kamrul Islam started as head of EECS effective July 1. The University of Missouri’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department has a new permanent chair. Syed Kamrul Islam took over as head of EECS effective July 1. Islam previously served as a professor, James W. McConnell Endowed Chair and associate head for Academic Affairs of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Islam earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Bangladesh University of…

Synthetic ‘brainy skin’ with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Credit: University of Glasgow A robotic hand covered in ‘brainy skin’ that mimics the human sense of touch is being developed by scientists.  University of Glasgow’s Professor Ravinder Dahiya has plans to develop ultra-flexible, synthetic Brainy Skin that ‘thinks for itself’. The super-flexible, hypersensitive skin may one day be used to make more responsive prosthetics for amputees, or to build robots with a sense of touch. Brainy Skin reacts like human skin, which has its own neurons that…
