Mizzou is one of four finalists in the Mechanical Contractors Association of America Student Chapter Competition. Photo courtesy of Ahmad Atallah. The Mizzou chapter of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America is one of four semifinalists in the MCAA’s Student Chapter Competition. The national contest tasked MCAA student chapters nationwide with executing a proposal for the mechanical portion of a large-scale addition and renovation project for the football stadium at Indiana University. The grand prize for the event is $10,000.…

EaseUS Data Recovery – Fast, Powerful & Reliable Data Recovery Tool

Data is central to every device and if you lose the same, it can be a reason for many problems. In our similar quest, to recover data that we accidentally deleted from Mac, we stumbled upon EaseUS Data Recovery. We downloaded the tool and found it pretty amazing and thought to share the same with our readers. Data recovery is defined as recuperating data from ruined, broke, inaccessible or failed primary or secondary storage. It is generally not rare for…

New analysis methods facilitate the evaluation of complex engineering data

For less noise: high-resolution simulation of flows in a car air conditioning system. Credit: Fraunhofer SCAI A further increase in the performance of supercomputers is expected over the next few years. So-called exascale computers will be able to deliver more precise simulations. This leads to considerably more data. Fraunhofer SCAI develops efficient data analysis methods for this purpose, which provide the engineer with detailed insights into the complex technical contexts. Simulations on supercomputers answer important industrial questions, such as how…

Microstructures can be moved by light and temperature — ScienceDaily

Laser-based 3D printing can already be used today to produce any structure on a micrometer scale. However, for many applications, especially in biomedicine, it would be advantageous if the printed objects were not rigid but switchable. Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now been able to print microstructures that change shape under the influence of temperature or light. The results were published in the journal Nature Communications. 3D printing has established itself as a technology with countless…

Smart, self-powered knee implants could reduce number of knee replacement surgeries

Smart knee implants may soon be a reality thanks to research conducted by a team including faculty at Binghamton University, State University of New York. Knee replacement surgery is the most common joint replacement procedure, with the number of surgeries increasing every year. Many of those surgeries are done to replace an older implant or one that has worn out. Increasingly, this surgery is being performed for younger, more active patients who are faced with a dilemma. When they undergo…

Zero-shot transfer across 93 languages: Open-sourcing enhanced LASER library

To accelerate the transfer of natural language processing (NLP) applications to many more languages, we have significantly expanded and enhanced our LASER (Language-Agnostic SEntence Representations) toolkit. We are now open-sourcing our work, making LASER the first successful exploration of massively multilingual sentence representations to be shared publicly with the NLP community. The toolkit now works with more than 90 languages, written in 28 different alphabets. LASER achieves these results by embedding all languages jointly in a single shared space (rather…

Classic double-slit experiment in a new light — ScienceDaily

An international research team led by physicists from Collaborative Research Centre 1238, ‘Control and Dynamics of Quantum Materials’ at the University of Cologne has implemented a new variant of the basic double-slit experiment using resonant inelastic X-ray scattering at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble. This new variant offers a deeper understanding of the electronic structure of solids. Writing in Science Advances, the research group have now presented their results under the title ‘Resonant inelastic x-ray incarnation of Young’s double-slit…

Empowering Data Science with Data Engineering Education

Data engineering education enables data scientists to better interface with engineering and ensures higher data quality. Authors: Michelle Du, Yu Guo, Jeff Feng Since launching Data University (Data U) at Airbnb two years ago, our data education program has made significant progress towards our overarching vision of empowering every employee to make data-informed decisions. To date, over 400 courses have been taught to thousands of course participants by the 55 volunteer faculty members from across the Data Science & Engineering organizations.…

Going global pays off big for Mizzou Engineering’s Garrow

Carly Garrow’s fellowship in Germany built her skills in a variety of areas and helped her land a job recently with medical device manufacturers Zimmer Biomet. Photo courtesy of Carly Garrow. Students have heard it many times — studying abroad will expand their horizons and provide them with global experience that employers desire. The reason they hear it so often is because it happens to be statistically true. For a more personal account, take Mizzou Engineering alumna Carly Garrow. Garrow, a…

Automating Datacenter Operations at Dropbox

  Introduction As a company that manages our own infrastructure we need to be able to rapidly install new server capacity and ensure that the equipment entering our production environment is highly reliable. Prior to the creation and implementation of the Pirlo system, engineering personnel at Dropbox manually intervened in most aspects of server/switch provisioning and validation. Pirlo was designed to eliminate and automate many of these manual processes. In this post we will describe Pirlo, a flexible system designed…
