Sensor Research Underscores Clemson University’s Leadership in Technology For Extreme Environments

October 30, 2019

Sensors may seem to be a small part of the system that keeps electricity flowing, but they provide crucial information. Researchers said the two power-plant sensors they are developing could help watch for equipment failures, helping lower maintenance costs for utilities. The well sensors would monitor pressure and be less expensive than current technology, they said.

Meet Five Synthetic Biology Companies Using AI To Engineer Biology

September 27, 2019

AI is already here, and it can beat you — and the world’s best — at chess. In 2012, it was also used by Google to identify cats in YouTube videos. Today, it’s the reason Teslas have Autopilot and Netflix and Spotify seem to “read your mind.” Now, AI is changing the field of synthetic biology and how we engineer biology.

AI Hysteria Could Set The Technology Back By Decades

September 03, 2019

Most discussions about artificial intelligence (AI) are characterized by hyperbole and hysteria. Though some of the world’s most prominent and successful thinkers regularly forecast that AI will either solve all our problems or destroy us or our society, and the press frequently reports on how AI will threaten jobs and raise inequality, there’s actually very little evidence to support these ideas.

Machine learning to improve NASA's space travel

August 28, 2019

NASA needs spacecraft that's lighter and more damage tolerant. Randy Paffenroth, has a multi-part mission in this research project. His mathematical machine learning uses an algorithm that will look at the material's uniformity and detect imperfections with higher resolution images.  the machine learning happens because the algorithm learns from previous scans further improving future scans. He and his team will also develop algorithms to be used in active feedback control systems to predict how good a particular piece of material will be as it's first being made, helping to ensure a more consistent end product. The algorithm analyzes the properties measured at the beginning of the manufacturing run to effectively predict the properties at the end of the run, including mechanical properties and length of run. Researcher: RANDY PAFFENROTH, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES AT Worcester Polytechnic Institute and working with Nanocomp Technologies, Inc.

When Human Expertise Improves the Work of Machines

August 26, 2019

Machine learning algorithms can sometimes do a better job with a little help from human expertise, at least in the field of materials science. In many specialized areas of science, engineering and medicine, researchers are turning to machine learning algorithms to analyze data sets that have grown much too large for humans to understand.
