The RGB color model is a great invention which allows that with the mixture of different intensities of red, green and blue, any monitor or television can reproduce the colors of the reality. But ... how is it achieve? and why the colors of the model aren't others? The answer is in our eyes.

The retina is the part of the eye where we capture the light, and this is made thanks to a kind of modified neurons for detect photons: the rods and the cones.

Turing test diagram
Today I woke up philosophical so I'm going to explain the famous Turing test.
The Turing test was proposed in a scientific paper called "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", wrote by Alan Turing in 1950. This is a test that must surpass a machine in order to show that it is intelligent. Continue discovering "The Turing test and the Chinese room"

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. Enter into "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"
