Smart computing has weaved its way into people’s everyday lives, from heathcare to transportation, from security to social media, and Missouri University of Science and Technology is a leader in this growing field.
Missouri S&T is a co-sponsor of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2016) held May 18-20 in St. Louis. Dr. Sajal K. Das, the Daniel St. Clair Endowed Chair and department chair of computer science at Missouri S&T, is on the steering committee and is the conference’s co-chair.
“We wanted to bring IEEE SMARTCOMP 2016 to St. Louis because Smart Living is one of our signature areas, and I think this will give Missouri S&T a lot of visibility,” says Das, who attended the first IEEE SMARTCOMP conference in 2014 in Hong Kong. “This conference will continue to grow over time.”Read More »
Missouri University of Science and Technology researchers have developed a real-time, portable and 3-D microwave video camera prototype.
The Missouri S&T team has developed a microwave 3-D video camera that can be used for industrial inspection applications, security screening — and might even one day be used by first responders. Dr. Mohammad Tayeb Ghasr, assistant research professor at Missouri S&T, and Dr. Reza Zoughi, the Schlumberger Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at Missouri S&T, are the lead researchers on the project.Read More »
