BTN LiveBIG: This Maryland Day, Terps hunger for big impact

Part carnival. Part expo. All fun. It’s Maryland Day, which happens tomorrow at the University of Maryland’s campus in College Park. Along with games, activities and entertainment, Maryland Day features information about a variety of student-run organizations at the university. And Terps Against Hunger, fresh off of its win in Maryland’s annual Do Good Challenge, is looking to make another big splash at the event tomorrow. “[Maryland Day] is an invitation to the community to see what the university’s all about,” said Josh Turskey, a sophomore majoring in architecture and the current vice president of Terps Against Hunger. “We’re opening

BTN LiveBIG: Purdue 'rolls' out new partnership to develop tomorrow's jet engineers

One is known for Neil Armstrong and global engineers. The other is known for powering the world’s aircraft and producing exclusive luxury automobiles. Together, they’re planning to create the jet aircraft of the future. Purdue University’s campus in West Lafayette, Ind., is about 4,000 miles from Rolls-Royce’s global headquarters in London, but the company also maintains major engineering, design and manufacturing operations in Indiana and Virginia. While the geographic and cultural complexities among the two organizations might make a research and development partnership seem problematic, there’s actually a strong foundation for that kind of relationship. For one thing, more than

BTN LiveBIG: For Michigan professor, computer science is much more than a job

Thanks to Jason Mars, “Siri” could get a whole lot more effective in the years to come. An assistant professor of computer science at the University of Michigan, Mars and his team of researchers built their own intelligent assistant, named Sirius, which features voice-command and image-matching capabilities. They released Sirius in March 2015 to the rest of the world so other researchers could examine how to improve intelligent assistants too. “We designed an open platform for intelligent assistants like Siri, Cortana, Google Now,” Mars said. “And it made a really nice splash. These kinds of infrastructures were locked up at

BTN LiveBIG: A 'United' front in the war against inner-city violence

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. In my 10 years of working on video content, I’ve had a handful of shoots in elementary schools.  As a producer, you get excited knowing you’re going to capture footage of cute kids having fun and smiling. Add some slow motion to that and you’ve got gold! When I walked into Earle STEM Academy in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side,

BTN LiveBIG: Illini duo takes kids from classroom to cosmos

Many of us can recall sitting in a classroom, impatiently tapping a pencil on the top of our desk, barely paying attention as a teacher droned on about something we neither understood nor expected to use outside of the school. Well, a group of researchers at the University of Illinois is working on something that could capture the imaginations of similarly spaced-out students. Professor Robb Lindgren and graduate student Sam Wang, working with colleagues from Vanderbilt University and the University of Central Florida, developed a program of mixed-reality technologies that’s intended to improve comprehension of complex ideas — particularly in

BTN LiveBIG: Michigan State doctors repair pup's palate

In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. It’s hard not to fall in love with a dog like Mr. Moo. The stout, good-natured puppy greets people with a friendly vibe that wins them over instantly. But he had a problem, one that’s fairly common in his fellow canines as well as their two-legged companions: cleft palate. This condition causes part of the roof of a person’s (or animal’s) mouth

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State museum brings science down to earth

In Happy Valley, you don’t have to be a kid to play in the sandbox. This spring, Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Museum and Art Gallery debuted a new augmented-reality sandbox as part of an exhibit about topographical maps. Visitors shape the sand any way they want to inside the box. Then Xbox Kinect sensors relay information about the changes in elevation within the box to a computer that projects a topographical map onto the sand. “You can make rivers and valleys and mountains, and it will project it,” said Julianne Snider, the museum’s assistant director for

BTN LiveBIG: Wisconsin engineers fish for inspiration on artificial-eye development

If you don’t already, odds are that someday you’ll hold a newspaper at arm’s length to read it more clearly. This incredibly common eye condition, called presbyopia, generally affects those in their 50s and older. It occurs when eye muscles begin to age and harden, making it more difficult to focus on nearby objects. While this condition has been considered part of the normal aging process, professor Hongrui Jiang and his team of University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers are focusing — no pun intended — on a solution. Their innovative work developing components of an “artificial eye” recently received a great

BTN LiveBIG: Hoosier Tavis Smiley shares lessons from his life

Yesterday, we shared a biographical sketch of Indiana University alum Tavis Smiley, who recently released the book “50 for Your Future: Lessons from Down the Road.” Written the year he turned 50, his goal for the book was to help younger readers find an authentic life without falling prey to common pressures caused by one’s own ego or modern society. In the instant bestseller, he set down 50 valuable life lessons, many of which were learned on IU’s campus in Bloomington. Here are a few he shared with BTN LiveBIG: Tavis Smiley on Aging and Time Smiley has long appreciated

BTN LiveBIG: Indiana alum Tavis Smiley looks back on his half-century as a Hoosier

Tavis Smiley is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest interviewers of our generation. He’s a best-selling author and one of the most popular media figures in America. Time Magazine named him one of “The World’s Most Influential People.” Not bad for someone who was raised in a trailer in Indiana. Smiley grew up poor with nine brothers and sisters, all of whom lived in a three-bedroom trailer with their parents. And though space was limited, dreams were not. “There were 13 people in that trailer. Mom. Dad. A maternal grandmother named Big Mama,” Smiley said. “Many of the life lessons
