Robot con Kinect
In one of the posts where I explained the how Kinect works, I said that wouldn't be strange that it will be use to build robots. Now are emerging the first robotic machines that someday will rebel and will begin to kill humans. Here I talk about some of them. Don't left of read the rest of "Robots, Kinect and the SLAM problem"

Kinect
Microsoft wants that we can play with the Xbox 360 moving us in front of the screen. For that have spend hundreds of millions of dollars in develop a device to realize the recognition and the tracking, not only of a complete person but several ones, including also 3D information, its name is Kinect. In this post you will discover how works the hardware and the artificial intelligence algorithms that uses. Continue reading "Kinect: How works its 3D body tracking"

Cover of the movie The Matrix
The hypothesis of that we are in a universe simulated by big supercomputer can't be proven because, if true, never will could see outside of the simulation, although is a funny mental experiment do speculation about this. Show more of "How would be our universe if it would be generated by Matrix?"

CAPTCHA
The web pages increasingly receive more SPAM of programs that automatically fill the forms of the webs. To avoid it, appears the annoying CAPTCHA ("Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart"). A CAPTCHA consist in a test that has to pass the person that is filling the form, to demonstrate that is a human. But, are there any test that can surpass a human and not a machine? Read all about of "Could the CAPTCHA of the future distinguish a human from a machine?"

Cube of a multidimensional query
The data warehouses or multidimensional databases, are a kind of technology that has constant grow of use in the enterprises in the last years. This isn't strange, because with the techniques of data mining, the enterprises can predict the future, something very important to take decision. Do you want to know how?
