Electricity is something we rarely think about -- we expect it to be there, flowing hundreds of feet over our heads, powering every facet of our daily lives.
Researchers at West Virginia University are using artificial intelligence to counter soaring costs of health care and deliver more efficient and accurate diagnoses of cardiovascular diseases.
The West Virginia Water Research Institute at West Virginia University has been awarded $5 million by the U.S. Department of Energy to scale up its successful Rare Earth Recovery Project, which will include building a facility at a new acid mine drainage treatment plant near Mount Storm.
Where is Waldo? Whether we’re searching for Waldo or our keys in a room of clutter, we tap into a part of the frontal region of the brain when performing visual, goal-related tasks. Some of us do it well, whereas for others it’s a bit challenging.
One West Virginia University chemical engineer is tapping into artificial intelligence to prolong the lives of power plant boilers.
West Virginia University mining engineers are developing a method to create a self-supply of rare earth elements in the United States from coal waste.
There’s no beauty premium in college football: Aggressive features = higher pay for coaches, say WVU researchers
Football was never intended to be a beauty pageant, and this study by West Virginia University researchers backs it up.
While researchers at West Virginia University were testing coal miners’ safety gloves to help reduce lost-time accidents, they went a step further. Eduardo Sosa, a research associate professor in mechanical and aerospace engineering in the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, and Marta Moure, a post-doctoral fellow from Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain, reduced the need for future physical testing of the gloves through computer simulations.
In a private ceremony, the West Virginia Robotic Technology Center, operated by the West Virginia University Research Corporation, and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center celebrated ten year of partnership and innovation.
