typewriter
Because of the close of the last factory of typewriter (Godrej and Boyce), I'm going to talk about the distribution of the keys on a computer keyboard, because they have inhereted the distribution of its keys.

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.
