iRobot 710 Warrior
Although Japan is the country more advanced in robotics, they are not sending a lot of robots to work in the nuclear plant of Fukushima. We don't know if this is because they spend more money in the robots than in the humans or because only have thought in build robots that do domestic task. However, at least they have sent one robot.

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. Finish reading "Tsunami simulation"

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. Follow discovering "Turing prize (the Nobel of the computer science)"

Cyborg insect
Not a lot of time ago are being developing cyborg insects. The main idea is quite simple, if the brain of the animals works with electrical impulses and the circuits too, instead of have to build a mechanical robot, we can use the bilogical hardware of the insect, connecting to it a chip in the brain, that will apply the appropiate electrical impulses to control it. Surprise yourself with the rest of "Cyborg insects"

Watson
From the years 60 are being developed question answering systems. I'm talking about applications capable of answer to questions realized by humans. At that time only was possible do systems restricted to a concrete context, as BASEBALL and LUNAR, that answer to questions about footbal players of EEUU and lunar stones, respectively. Since them these systems have been evolved a lot of and every time we are more near of achieve an AI with a level of knowledge of the world similar to the human beings.

Robot eyes
The vision is one of the principal senses of the human being. Give to the future robots a similar vision to the human is a big challenge of the branch of artificial intelligence called artificial vision. If you want know what is the difference between the human vision and the robotic vision, follow reading. Show more of "Computer vision vs biologic vision"
