Researchers apply machine learning to study fossil pollen

Posted by on November 16, 2020

Dr. Francisca Oboh-Ikuenobe, professor of geology and geophysics at Missouri S&T, has joined colleagues from other universities to develop a new, more efficient method of identifying fossilized pollen that combines high-resolution imaging techniques with a form of artificial intelligence known as machine learning. They aim to improve the accuracy of fossil pollen identification and discover links to modern plants.

Is your smart watch sharing your data?

Posted by on November 13, 2020

You may not realize it, but your internet-connected household devices such as the Ring doorbell, Peloton exercise bike and Nest thermostat are all exchanging data with other devices and systems over the network. These physical objects, all part of the Internet of Things (IoT), come with sensors and software, and they often use cloud computing. Most people would consider the information contained in these household items as highly private. They store data ranging from your height and weight to when you are out of the house.

Research links sinking land to regions of high groundwater demand

Posted by on September 24, 2020

Excessive pumping from underground aquifers can cause the surrounding land to sink and lead to damage to streets, bridges and other infrastructure, reduced groundwater storage, and contaminated drinking water, according to researchers at Missouri S&T. They are using a form of artificial intelligence known as machine learning to map the sinking – called land subsidence – to help water policy officials make informed decisions.
