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.

Swarm robots, Kilobot
The previous post was about robots with body inspired by animals, so that in this I'm going to talk about robots with intelligence inspired in the nature. This are a lot of more interesting, because its programming, unlike to the robots of the prior post, is more related with the artificial intelligence than with the physics.

Bird robot
There are a lot of robots that simulate the behavior and imitate the form, structure and movements of some animals. The engineers copy them because they know that the evolution had have millions of years to get solutions that gives the maximum performance with the minimum energy expenditure, so reproduce the nature allow us resolve problems that in otherwise hardly we could resolve.

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? Learn more about "When the machines talked to each other"

Logo of Computable Minds in blue
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 left of read the rest of "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"

Turing test diagram
Today I woke up philosophical so I'm going to explain the famous Turing test.
The Turing test was proposed in a scientific paper called "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", wrote by Alan Turing in 1950. This is a test that must surpass a machine in order to show that it is intelligent. Don't stop reading the rest of "The Turing test and the Chinese room"
