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. Follow reading "Robots, Kinect and the SLAM problem"

optical fiber
The Christmas arrived, the streets are full of led diodes of high luminescence, the house of Christmas trees of optical fiber, the computers of USB ornaments and Santa Claus brings robots and computers to the children. A lot of technology to celebrate the born of Isaac Newton as must be. In this post I'm going to talk about how works the Christmas trees of optical fiber. Learn more about "Christmas tree of optical fiber"

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. Enter into "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? Deep in "Could the CAPTCHA of the future distinguish a human from a machine?"

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. Follow discovering "Kinect: How works its multiarray microphone "

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. Follow reading "The bionic eye"

Kempelen machine reconstruction
Over two hundred years ago, in 1779, Christian Kartzenstein did 5 whistles that made blew the vowels artificially. Few years after, in 1791, Wolfgang von Kemplelen presented his "Acoustic-Mechanical Speech Machine" that we could consider the first voice synthesizer because it could produce isolated sounds and some sound combinations.

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? Continue discovering "When the machines talked to each other"

Alan Turing
The same as others disciplines as mathematics, the informatics don't have Nobel prize. So a equivalent award, had to be invented in computer science, called Turing prize, in honor to Alan Turing, that did important contributions to the computer science in the beginning of it.

The technological singularity it can be defined as a moment in the future where we will create an intelligence with the capacity to make another that surpass itself, at the same time, this new intelligence could do the same. This fact would trigger an exponential increment of intelligence and technology until the infinite, surpassing our intelligence and all our technology. If this happens our live would change in a totally unpredictable way. Read all about of "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"
