Cover of the movie Matrix Reloaded
Following with the prior post, I'm going to expose some questions of the science that would be solved if we were in the Matrix. You will see that some of them are so rare and could be considered a glitch in the Matrix or a programming bug. Show more of "Glitches in the Matrix"

Robot in the uncanny valley
The uncanny valley, is a theory of the japanes expert in robotics Masahiro Mori that says that the emotional response of a human to a humanoid robot, will be empathic and positive as much more it's the resemblance to a human, but will arrive a point before that the similarity and the movements of the robot be totally human, in that the response will be of aversion. Overcomed this valley, when the robot is indistinguishable from a human, the response becomes so empathic as to any other human. Fill your mind with "Explanations of the uncanny valley"

Not a lot of time ago has been resumed one of my favourite series, Futurama, realized by Matt Groenning, the creator of the Simpson.
Between the scriptwriters of Futurama are involved several scientist that provides continuously references to the science. In this post I'm going to explain the cryptography used in the series for code some alien inscriptions. Continue discovering "The Futurama code: First part"
