Most humans are biased. But did you know that machine learning algorithms can also be biased? Dr. Xia "Ben" Hu has been bestowed a joint NSF-Amazon award to fix this problem and make artificial intelligence fairer.
Engineers at Texas A&M University have developed a one-of-a-kind diagnostic software called Distribution Fault Anticipation that can discover problems on utility lines before outages, before power failures spark deadly wildfires, or before fears of wildfires prompt massive, pre-emptive power outages.
Liquid crystals are popular candidates for many applications ranging from monitor screens to solar panels. Texas A&M University researchers have now found that temperature gradients are a simple, yet novel way to grow and move high-quality liquid crystals.
With the help of a grant from the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program, a Texas A&M University-led research team will continue the development of a new type of propulsion system, possibly enabling missions to the nearest stars in our lifetime.
The IMPEDE® Embolization Plug, originally designed by researchers in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, has won a 2019 R&D 100 Award from R&D World magazine, one of the highest external recognitions that a team could receive for their research impact.
To support the progression of solar power, a team led by Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station researchers received a $4.4 million Department of Energy grant to develop and demonstrate a cyber-resilient operation for power distribution systems with massively photovoltaic generation, such as rooftop solar panels.
The Engineering Genesis Award for Multidisciplinary Research was presented to 23 TEES researchers and their teams during the TEES Advisory Board meeting Nov. 15. The award is presented to TEES researchers who have secured significant research grants of $1 million or more.
The Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center has appointed Dr. Stewart Behie to serve as interim director. Behie has over 40 years of technical experience in risk assessment and management, process hazards analysis, safety engineering and the process of safety culture maturation.
The construction industry is booming and contributes more than $10 trillion annually to the world economy. However, it has the lowest productivity of any manufacturing industry. Dr. Zachary Grasley has received a National Science Foundation planning grant to help bring artificial intelligence to the construction industry.
