Maroon Minute highlights National Science Foundation grant

Monday, February 3, 2014

Dr. Steven Younger, applied science and engineering research professor, and Dr. Emmett Redd, physics, astronomy and materials science professor, have received a grant of $140,000 from the National Science Foundation. The funding is for their project on super computing and brain-like intelligence.

In the 1990s, a theoretical model was developed illustrating the possibility of a computer capable of unprecedented dynamic, flexible and interactive behaviors. Younger and Redd’s research consolidates experimental and theoretical research. They hope the result will be a machine that can perform well beyond the capabilities of present-day computers.

Younger and Redd’s research could contribute to the development of an advanced machine with a knack for common sense and the ability to learn well beyond the parameters of its programming.

Maroon Minutes highlight Missouri State University’s points of pride: the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students and supporters. Each Maroon Minute first airs during a home football or basketball game.
