IPv6
To identify any device in Internet, this must have a IP assigned (is something similar to a telephone number that identifies uniquely every computer). But these numbers, that use the format established by the protocol IPv4, are running out, making that in a few months would be necessary the use of numbers more large, whose format was established by the protocol IPv6.

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. Fill your mind with "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"

linked data - semantic web
Tim Berners Lee, inventor of the Web, from the beginning wanted that his invention was semantic forming a global data base of the human knowledge, in which the information could be consulted by all the world and understood by the machines, to generate new knowledge, answer questions and create artificial intelligences that could surpass the Turing Test. This idea begins to become true, but first have to overcome several difficulties that I'm going to expose next. Fill your mind with "The problems of the semantic Web"

Today I'm going to dedicate the post to explain some basic concepts about the files that the 99% of the people that use a computer don't understand it very well.
Some users know that the last letters that there are at the end of a file (the extension), identifies the type of file, so, for instance, an archive ended in .JPG is a type of file of image and another ended in .GIF is a different image format with other characteristics. This, is true for most cases, but causes confusion in the cases where the extension isn't of a concrete format, unless of a format container. Finish reading "Differences between extension and format in a file"

Radio-telescope
The distributed computing consist in the use of several personal computers to resolve, in less time, a problem for that we needed several years of computation with only one computer. This kind of computation usually use the processors of the users that voluntarily give their CPU cicles and GPU when they aren't using their computer, constituting a economic way of do an investigation when a supercomputer is not available.

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?
