Map of Internet
Internet is formed by a tangle of cables and routers. These routers, have the mission of route the information through that spider web in order to arrive to its destiny, although really Internet is organized in a hierarchy of routers that goes from the router of our house to the router that send the data of a entire country.

Tsunami picture of Hokusai
The tsunamis or seaquakes can be generated by earthquakes, submarine landslides, volcanic eruptions and giant meteors. All this variety of phenomena can be simulated in a computer to take preventive measures. Continue discovering "Tsunami simulation"

Alan Turing
The same as others disciplines as mathematics, the informatics don't have Nobel prize. So a equivalent award, had to be invented in computer science, called Turing prize, in honor to Alan Turing, that did important contributions to the computer science in the beginning of it. Fill your mind with "Turing prize (the Nobel of the computer science)"

Cyborg insect
Not a lot of time ago are being developing cyborg insects. The main idea is quite simple, if the brain of the animals works with electrical impulses and the circuits too, instead of have to build a mechanical robot, we can use the bilogical hardware of the insect, connecting to it a chip in the brain, that will apply the appropiate electrical impulses to control it. Don't left of read the rest of "Cyborg insects"

When Ray Tomlinson invented the e-mail in 1971, surely he didn't thought that the at sign, will convert in an Internet symbol (Arpanet in that moment). Don't miss the rest of "History of the at sign"

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.
