Monitor with giant cactus

In this post I'm going to explain something quite basic, but a lot of people unknown or simply don't understand well.
I'm going to clarify why the algorithms (sequence of steps that has to realizy a computer to complete a determinate task), are execute more faster in hardware than in software. Finish reading "Any algorithm in hardware is faster than in software"

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? Enter into "When the machines talked to each other"
