Ostentatious utensil of virtual reality
The virtual reality is the creation of 3D interactive worlds by computer, with the intention of immerse the user in another reality. To this, normally, is used goggles that has an screen for each eye, creating the sensation of be in a 3D world around us everywhere. See here how has evolved this discipline.

Two terminators T-800 looking face to face
Was the year 1996 when the professor Weizenbaum created ELIZA, the first chatbot application and the first that the human could use to talk about their problems, because was a psychotherapist. Later, in 1971, Colby, Weber and Hilf developed PARRY, another chatbot, but this time was a paranoid schizophrenic made to chat with ELIZA. So they hooked up at ARPANET (pre-Internet) and put them to chat together. Do you want to know what happened? Learn more about "When the machines talked to each other"

Kinect
Microsoft wants that we can play with the Xbox 360 moving us in front of the screen. For that have spend hundreds of millions of dollars in develop a device to realize the recognition and the tracking, not only of a complete person but several ones, including also 3D information, its name is Kinect. In this post you will discover how works the hardware and the artificial intelligence algorithms that uses. Deep in "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

Turing test diagram
Today I woke up philosophical so I'm going to explain the famous Turing test.
The Turing test was proposed in a scientific paper called "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", wrote by Alan Turing in 1950. This is a test that must surpass a machine in order to show that it is intelligent. Read the rest of "The Turing test and the Chinese room"

linked data - semantic web
Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the Web, from the beginning wanted that his invention was semantic forming a global data base of the human knowledge, in which the information could be consulted by all the world and understood by the machines, to generate new knowledge, answer questions and create artificial intelligences that could surpass the Turing Test. This idea begins to become true, but first have to overcome several difficulties that I'm going to expose next. Read the rest of "The problems of the semantic Web"
