Welcome to Computable Minds, a new blog of popular science and curiosities focused in the informatics and oriented for all kind of people. Even if you don't like informatics I'm sure you found it interesting, since the informatics, how the other sciences, always are related with all other sciences and the improvement of our lives.

Signal warning of radiactivity
The processors aren't inmune to the radiactivity. This it produces soft errors, that are errors in the signals of its circuits, produced by the noise that generates the radiation on it. The consequences of the radiation over the machines aren't so devastating as over the human, because in the worst case we can reboot the machine, but the things that could do the machines affected by radiation to the humans, it could be dangerous. Surprise yourself with the rest of "The machines neither are inmune to the radiactivity"

Cover of the movie The Matrix
The hypothesis of that we are in a universe simulated by big supercomputer can't be proven because, if true, never will could see outside of the simulation, although is a funny mental experiment do speculation about this. Don't miss the rest of "How would be our universe if it would be generated by Matrix?"

Tsunami picture of Hokusai
The tsunamis or seaquakes can be generated by earthquakes, submarine landslides, volcanic eruptions and giant meteors. All this variety of phenomena can be simulated in a computer to take preventive measures. Enter into "Tsunami simulation"

Tom Cruise at Minority Report using a gestural interface
Do you remember that futuristic movie called Minority Report? In this movie appears Tom Cruise controlling a computer making gestures with both hands. This an idea that today is quite impressive but, really, wasn't nothing new in the 2002 when appears this film, in fact in that times it was possible make this without the need of using gloves.

Virtual singer Miku Hatsume
The voice synthesizers are those programs as Loquendo, which provide of human voice to the machine. Although the majority of them have a voice very robotic, without intonation and feelings, but we can understand it. Here you see roughly how is imitated the human voice in a computer and because is so difficult achieve a voice equal to the human one. Show more of "How works the voice synthesizers?"

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. Don't left of read the rest of "Glitches in the Matrix"

Gordon Moore’s photo
Gordon Moore, one of the Intel founders, published in a magazine of 1965 a "law" known as Moore's Law, that tells: "the number of transistor of a processor doubles every 24 month". Can be interpreted as: "every two years the processors are twice fast at the same price". That "law" it's satisfied every year, but, Will stop at sometime?

Robocup 2010 Logo
Although I hate soccer (because of the fanaticism that generate and the astronomical amounts of money that move that we could invest at investigation), how the next Sunday it's the world championship final, I'm going to talk about soccer with robots.
The Robocup is the robot soccer competition most important of the world. The last was made in Singapore and end at the past June 25. Here you can see some videos, inform yourself about the competitions and know the last news. Enter into "Soccer results of the Robocup 2010"
