Robot in the uncanny valley
The uncanny valley, is a theory of the japanes expert in robotics Masahiro Mori that says that the emotional response of a human to a humanoid robot, will be empathic and positive as much more it's the resemblance to a human, but will arrive a point before that the similarity and the movements of the robot be totally human, in that the response will be of aversion. Overcomed this valley, when the robot is indistinguishable from a human, the response becomes so empathic as to any other human. Deep in "Explanations of the uncanny valley"

Fragment of an entity relation schema
Unfortunately a lot of people, thinks that design a relational database is something very simple and that anyone that have a pair of classes of Microsoft Access in a academy can dedicate to it. But doesn't occur the same when instead of a database the work is about design a flat, an airplane or a car. In all this cases the people knows that needs an architect, an aeronautic engineer and automobile engineer, respectively. But who has the guilty of this way of think? Show more of "Why a database can't be designed by anyone?"

Processor
In this post I'm going to do predictions about how will be the hardware of the future, but not guiding me neither by the movement of the stars nor the Tarot cards, instead I'm going to base my predictions in the market evolution and some trends.
Since the years 40, the computers are being build following the John von Neumann architecture, with one processor, a memory and a controller of input/output. This will change sometime? I think so. Follow reading "Four predictions about the hardware of the future"

grave with a computer
The past month died three great geniuses that had made that the computing be as it is today. I'm referring to John MacCarthy, Dennis Ritchie and Steve Jobs. Probably you only know who is the last, which is the only one that has had media coverage. However is the less important, because if the other two had not existed, Steve Jobs perhaps wouldn't have achieved anything.

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"

During any software development is normal that the client want that the application does more things. If the computer specialist don't have all the things well defined from the beginning can make more difficult the development, but that isn't a problem, the problem is that normally the client don't want to pay more than that was established in the initial budget.
