Thomas Angelini, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and Senthilkumar Duraivel, a Ph.D. candidate in materials science and engineering at UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, recently published research into a new technique for creating a replica of the brain using 3D printing.
Five big ways UF is benefiting Florida
Using artificial intelligence, scientists at UF are partnering with landowners and farmers to monitor and protect Florida natural and agricultural environments. With plans to measure the carbon dioxide captured by plants, soils and other natural resources, the researchers in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering are creating a network to help better understand fluctuations in the state’s ecosystems, and ultimately, to develop AI tools to preserve Florida lands for long-term use and enjoyment.
UF will spearhead DARPA mission to pioneer crucial biomanufacturing in space
With the goal of creating a resilient supply chain for a sustained presence in space, researchers at the University of Florida (UF) are bioengineering microbes for experimentation on the International Space Station (ISS) they hope will reliably produce biopolymers, nutraceuticals, and antibiotics in variable gravity conditions.
Animal Ecosystem Engineers Much Stronger Driver of Salt Marsh Accretion than Expected, Study Shows
Researchers at the University of Florida (UF) and the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research have shown that ecosystem engineering by mussels in Southeastern US salt marshes is a stronger driver of coastal ecosystems’ ability to keep pace with sea-level rise than expected.
Timing is everything for UF team creating hyper-accurate synchronization for DoD readiness
Funded by a $4.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), UF researchers, including Roozbeh Tabrizian, Ph.D., principal investigator and associate professor and Alan Hastings Faculty Fellow in ECE, are leading the project to produce a microchip-sized tactical-grade clock that maintains accuracy on the magnitude of billionths of a second over time.
New ‘Invisible Finger’ Technology Poses Potential Phone-Hacking Threats, Researchers Say
When a team of researchers from the University of Florida unveiled new technology that allows someone to hack into a nearby touchscreen-enabled device using what they call an “invisible finger,” those in the field of cybersecurity took notice.
UF/IFAS Scientists Rethink Food Possibilities With 3D Food Printer
Adam Watson and Ziynet Boz, two UF/IFAS professors in the agricultural and biological engineering department, have been rethinking the power of 3D printers, specifically their ability to print food.
UF to Use $23.5 Million Grant to Build AI Infrastructure to Improve Critical Care
The University of Florida has been awarded $3.6 million of a $23.5 million multicenter grant for a four-year data-generation project that is unprecedented in its scope, aimed at building an infrastructure for artificial intelligence in critical care and advancing artificial intelligence in ways that improve patients’ ability to recover from life-threatening illnesses.
Nuclear Sleuths: University of Florida to Lead $25 Million National Consortium on Nuclear Forensics
The University of Florida will lead a $25 million, 16-university team of 31 scientists and engineers in the development of new techniques and the training of future specialists in nuclear forensics, which identifies and tracks nuclear materials to support global safety.
How UF Developed a Model for AI Across the Curriculum
The University of Florida is integrating AI into curriculum across disciplines to make it a core competency for students. UF professors and administrators, in a paper recently published in Computers and Education: Artificial Intelligence, explain how other traditional research universities might craft similar paths.
