Researchers consider invisible hurdles in digital ag design

A new study shows how digital ag may be unintentionally creating problems for farmers, and found that enabling farmers to tinker with their own systems and involving them early in the design process could better translate technology from the lab to the field.

Technology helps self-driving cars learn from own memories

Researchers at Cornell Bowers CIS and the College of Engineering have produced three concurrent research papers on autonomous vehicles’ ability to create “memories” of previous experiences and use them in future navigation.

Overlooked, undervalued: Cornell research seeks to elevate home care workers

A multidisciplinary team of Cornell researchers is collaborating to elevate the value of home care workers while improving their working conditions and patient outcomes.

Five companies ‘graduate’ from Cornell incubators

As the pandemic pomp and COVID circumstances dissipate, Cornell’s McGovern Center and Praxis Center incubators graduated five startups, putting them on the road to success.

AI reveals scale of eelgrass vulnerability to warming, disease

A combination of ecological field methods and AI has helped an interdisciplinary research group detect eelgrass wasting disease from San Diego to southern Alaska, and determine that it’s caused by warmer-than-normal water temperatures.

Harnessing machine learning to analyze quantum material

A collaboration led by Eun-Ah Kim, professor in the College of Art and Sciences, employed machine learning to analyze a massive dataset from a quantum metal to settle a debate about this material.
