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"

Cube of a multidimensional query
The data warehouses or multidimensional databases, are a kind of technology that has constant grow of use in the enterprises in the last years. This isn't strange, because with the techniques of data mining, the enterprises can predict the future, something very important to take decision. Do you want to know how?
