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. Read 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. Show more of "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 left of read the rest of "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. Don't miss the rest of "Kinect: How works its multiarray microphone "

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. Don't miss the rest of "Turing prize (the Nobel of the computer science)"

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.

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? Learn more about "When the machines talked to each other"

Printed cookie
An investigation team of the laboratory of computational synthesis of the University of Cornell have developed a food printer. They want that one day, will be something common in the kitchen of any person. Read all about of "The food printer"

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. Fill your mind with "How works the voice synthesizers?"

Fractal of the Mandelbrot set
The fractal geometry, makes reference to geometrical objects fractured, is a mathematical tool very powerful to represent in a computer and, with fidelity, structures that we can find, either in the nature or some things created by the man. Furthermore allows realize simulations more accurate of all kind of natural phenomenons. Also it's applied, in certain situations, to resolve all kind of problems. Would you like know how are made?
