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.

Researchers use artificial intelligence to improve efficiency in kidney transplant network

Posted by on August 24, 2020

Tens of thousands of people are on the kidney transplant waiting list. Less than a third of them will receive a kidney this year, and thousands of kidneys are discarded because matches are not made while the donor kidney is viable. Researchers at Missouri S&T are using artificial intelligence to improve workflow efficiency within the transplant network to speed up the process and give patients a better chance of receiving a transplant.
