A photo has been converted in the standard of reference in the computer sciences. Over this have been applied, from the years 70, a big quantity of algorithms of graphic computing, compression and artificial intelligence. Read all about of "The photo of Lena Söderberg"

The vitruvian Bender
Not a lot of time ago has been resumed one of my favourite series, Futurama, realized by Matt Groenning, the creator of the Simpson.
Between the scriptwriters of Futurama are involved several scientist that provides continuously references to the science. In this post I'm going to explain the cryptography used in the series for code some alien inscriptions. Don't left of read the rest of "The Futurama code: First part"

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. Don't stop reading the rest of "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"

HD break apart
A lot of people have only one partition in the hard disk where is the operating system, the virtual memory paging file and their personal files, because is as usually comes a computer newly purchased with Windows. Often I surprise discover the quantity of technical and people, that say be expert without having basics knowledges of the topic, that recommend have only one partition because, according to them, the hard disk works faster, when really is the opposite. Do you want to know why? Don't stop reading the rest of "Partitions of the hard disk. Are good or bad?"

Monitor with giant cactus
Formerly, when still the CRT (Cathodic Ray Tube) monitors were in use, emerge the myth of cactus that absorb the monitor radiations. This swindle probably was thought by some illuminated herbalist that saw the bulky filters antiradiaton that was putting in front of the screen. Surely though that he can win a lot of money selling cactus as substitute of this filters, because a cactus is a lot of more nice and friendly than an authentic filter antiradiation. Follow reading if you want to know why this belief is absurd. Learn more about "The myth of the antiradiation cactus"

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? Don't miss the rest of "When the machines talked to each other"

At the prior post, I did an explanation about how break the encryption of the alien alphabet 1, used subliminally in several episodes of Futurama. Today I'm going to do the same with the alien alphabet 2. Although you don't see Futurama, if you want know some mysteries of the cryptography, don't let of read this post.
