Robot con Kinect
In one of the posts where I explained the how Kinect works, I said that wouldn't be strange that it will be use to build robots. Now are emerging the first robotic machines that someday will rebel and will begin to kill humans. Here I talk about some of them. Surprise yourself with the rest of "Robots, Kinect and the SLAM problem"

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. Fill your mind with "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

CAPTCHA
The web pages increasingly receive more SPAM of programs that automatically fill the forms of the webs. To avoid it, appears the annoying CAPTCHA ("Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart"). A CAPTCHA consist in a test that has to pass the person that is filling the form, to demonstrate that is a human. But, are there any test that can surpass a human and not a machine? Don't stop reading the rest of "Could the CAPTCHA of the future distinguish a human from a machine?"

Bionic eye
Through the optical nerves, our eyes are connected to the visual cortex or cortex V1 located in the back part of the brain. If we decode the way in that the retinas of our eyes encode the information and how is interpreted after by the brain, we could connect a cable on the rear part of the head of a person to recreate in the brain an alternative reality. This seems take it from the script of Matrix, have already done to return the vision the blinds. Finish reading "The bionic eye"

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. Fill your mind with "The Turing test and the Chinese room"
