A University of Florida research team is working on a robot dog that has the ability to enter an enclosed space, scan it, and provide humans with a visual of what’s inside, an application that could lessen dangerous situations for first responders.
Not all algal blooms are harmful, but Amanda Muni-Morgan hopes to eventually mitigate the impacts of nutrients going into Tampa Bay. Those nutrients – often brought to the estuary by stormwater runoff — can fuel a harmful algal bloom.
University of Florida researchers are using genomics-based approaches, artificial intelligence and hyperspectral imaging to develop a device that can scan produce for freshness and optimize how and when produce is shipped.
We take our lead from people beyond our significant other and our friends – even with issues such as irrigation. Armed with this new data, University of Florida researcher Laura Warner believes she can help others lower their water use.
A University of Florida professor emeritus in materials science and engineering who developed an innovative computer chip manufacturing process, and an alumnus in electrical and computer engineering who is a leader at IBM in the application of artificial intelligence to aging issues, are among the 2021 inductees to the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame.
A team of researchers at the University of Florida has developed a system powered by solar energy that uses artificial intelligence to ultimately decrease the cost of keeping essential home appliances or devices running through a power outage.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine have appointed University of Florida Distinguished Professor Rob Ferl to co-chair a group tasked with mapping space-related biological and physical research for the next 10 years.
New technology patented by researchers at the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research which promises a new way to detect recycled (previously used) and counterfeit electronic parts, especially chips.
In the first agricultural revolution, mechanization changed life on the farm. In the second, chemicals drastically increased yields. In the third, genetics produced hybrid plants, boosting yields yet again. What will artificial intelligence capabilities do for agriculture in the fourth revolution?
Scientists at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences are one step closer to learning the factors that ultimately lead to characteristic differences in mosquito offspring – a key takeaway in the make-up of mosquito species and a critical finding in the continued research of mosquito-borne illnesses.
Bird aggression often occurs between birds of the same species. However, a new study found that birds of both the same and different species will be drawn to watch the fight and can influence the fighters.
Parasitic nematodes cause $125 billion in agricultural damage around the world each year, but University of Florida scientists hope to alleviate some of that destruction. To do so, UF researchers will use artificial intelligence (AI) to try to more rapidly identify nematodes.
Flooding poses an issue for all crops, and studies show that floods will increase as climate change continues to challenge growers around the globe. New research from UF scientists found three peach rootstocks that can survive flooding.
Scientists in the University of Florida’s newly established Center for Coastal Solutions (CCS) and collaborators from the Ocean Conservancy are researching and tracking the ecological effects of the Piney Point reservoir leak into Tampa Bay.
Researchers conducting a planned University of Florida-led study on plankton in two lagoons of the Florida Keys stumbled upon an unexpected presence in the course of their routine sampling: microplastics.
