Standardizing bilevel optimization for future researchers and practitioners
Bilevel optimization is used not only in research, but also in business to identify the best solutions for a variety of hierarchical problems. A U-M researcher aims to develop a comprehensive software package that will enable many industries to use this in everyday decision-making.
Responsive ankle exoskeleton algorithm handles changes in pace and gait
The algorithm uses direct muscle measurement, with the potential to seamlessly support a user who switches between walking and running
Helping people get back to work using deep learning in the occupational health system
University of Michigan researchers have produced a new prediction model using longitudinal information and deep learning to better predict the return to work time for people with occupational injuries.
Preventing prescription dispensing errors using machine intelligence
In the United States over four billion prescriptions are dispensed every year. Of those four billion around 2.4 million are incorrectly dispensed, which can be a fatal error. A team of researchers from the University of Michigan looks to machine intelligence to help humans reduce their dispensing errors.
The silent mental health crisis of engineering graduate students
Research on graduate-level engineering student mental health is vastly under-studied. University of Michigan researchers take a closer look at what has been researched and what still needs to be addressed.
U-M student group CLAWS develops tools to help astronauts navigate space
The University of Michigan Collaborative Lab for Advancing Work in Space participated in the NASA SUITS Challenge at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. They developed an augmented reality system to help astronauts navigate the moon.
