Women in Data Science at Uber: Moving the World With Data in 2020—and Beyond

Uber is a company built on data science. We leverage map data to get users from point A to point B; speech and text data to communicate between riders and drivers; restaurant and dish data to recommend food in the Uber app; and the list goes on.  On October 24, 2019, the WiSDOM (Women in Statistics, Data, Optimization, and Machine Learning) Employee Resource Group hosted the second annual Moving The World With Data meetup, welcoming hundreds of members of the…

New Report: China’s Memory Ambitions

Advanced electronic systems for connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs) and other safety- and security-critical applications use complex software stacks. At the bottom of the stack are integrated circuits (ICs) that include general-purpose and workload-optimized processing engines, and other semiconductor intellectual properties (IPs). However, hardware vulnerabilities may compromise the entire system. Ensuring that ICs, both ASICs and FPGAs, have high integrity requires adequate hardware-development flows that deliver evidence of functional correctness (the IC satisfies its intended mission requirements), safety (the IC can…

Engineering Scholar to Continue Studies

Recent Mizzou Engineering graduate Luke Guerdan liked to stay busy when he was a student studying computer science and psychology, with a minor in mathematics.  As a student, Guerdan served as president of the Mizzou Computing Association, was a Fellowships Office ambassador, and helped fellow students as a mentor with the Peer Undergraduate Mentoring Program. As an undergraduate researcher, Guerdan worked in Prof. Yi Shang’s Distributed and Intelligent Computing lab, where he developed artificial intelligence methods for decoding human cognition…

New light-sensitive material could eliminate some of the endoscopic procedures needed to remove gastrointestinal devices — ScienceDaily

A variety of medical devices can be inserted into the gastrointestinal tract to treat, diagnose, or monitor GI disorders. Many of these have to be removed by endoscopic surgery once their job is done. However, MIT engineers have now come up with a way to trigger such devices to break down inside the body when they are exposed to light from an ingestible LED. The new approach is based on a light-sensitive hydrogel that the researchers designed. Incorporating this material…

Not all of nature’s layered structures are tough as animal shells and antlers — ScienceDaily

Nacre — the iridescent part of mollusk shells — is a poster child for biologically inspired design. Despite being made of brittle chalk, the intricately layered microstructure of nacre gives it a remarkable ability to resist the spread of cracks, a material property known as toughness. Engineers looking to design tougher materials have long sought to mimic this kind of natural layering, which is also found in conch shells, deer antlers and elsewhere. But a new study by Brown University…

Billions of quantum entangled electrons found in ‘strange metal’ — ScienceDaily

In a new study, U.S. and Austrian physicists have observed quantum entanglement among “billions of billions” of flowing electrons in a quantum critical material. The research, which appears this week in Science, examined the electronic and magnetic behavior of a “strange metal” compound of ytterbium, rhodium and silicon as it both neared and passed through a critical transition at the boundary between two well-studied quantum phases. The study at Rice University and Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) provides the…

Garmin Visit Inspires MU Students

MU Engineering students who visited the Garmin International headquarters pose for a group photo during a tour of the company’s campus in Olathe, Kansas. MU Engineering students had an opportunity to test flight simulators, learn how a leading technology company creates and markets GPS navigation and wearable technology, meet alumni working at the company and job shadow engineers. The College’s Engineering Leadership, Engagement and Career Development Academy invited engineering students to visit Garmin International’s headquarters in Olathe, Kansas last week.…

Incorporate The Digital Twin Into Operations

As part of Machine Design’s 90th anniversary issue in January, we’ve asked industry experts to take a look at the present and future of technology and how it will impact the design and operation of manufacturing over the next decade. Q: Before we look ahead, let’s look back at the last 10 years. There has been so much change, but what would you cite as one or two significant changes in the previous decade? Hemmelgarn: A decade ago, we were…
