RAM memory
In this post I'm going to explain a way of waste the RAM memory instaled in the computer, which affects to a lot of users.
Since some years ago, are being sold computers with 4 or more GB of RAM, but if we use an operating system of 32 bits, it will indicate us that we are using a little less of those 4 GB. Why occurs this? Follow reading "RAM memory: Why if I have 4GB or more the OS detect less?"

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. Learn more about "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. Continue discovering "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

Kinect
The new Xbox 360 peripheral has a multiarray microphone that is capable of separate the voices that there are in front of the device from the others sounds of the enviroment to chat and use voice commands. Here you will learn how is done this difficult task. Deep in "Kinect: How works its multiarray microphone "

de-fragmentation
In the computer science, sometimes, appears false beliefs due to the ignorance of that really occurs in the machine. This time I'm going to demystify some of this old beliefs, which say that the hard disk can't be fragmented when we run a Linux based operating system. Surprise yourself with the rest of "What is fragmentation and the old myth of the fragmentation in Linux"

Supercomputer Tianher-1A
Its name is Tianhe-1A, is located in Tianjin (China) and can execute 2.507 petaflops, that is equivalent to 2.507.000.000.000.000.000 floating point operations per second. Is, therefore, the computer that execute more operations with decimals per second, this doesn't implies that is the more fast in the world, as others say, but is the more fast making this kind of operations. Read the rest of "Tianhe-1A: The supercomputer with more petaflops in the world"

Code and a processor
In this post I'm going to explain something quite basic, but a lot of people unknown or simply don't understand well.
I'm going to clarify why the algorithms (sequence of steps that has to realizy a computer to complete a determinate task), are execute more faster in hardware than in software. Continue reading "Any algorithm in hardware is faster than in software"
