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"

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 miss the rest of "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"

A photo has been converted in the standard of reference in the computer sciences. Over this have been applied, from the years 70, a big quantity of algorithms of graphic computing, compression and artificial intelligence. Show more of "The photo of Lena Söderberg"

JPG image very compressed
Surely that all of you know the image files ".JPG", and if you don't, you must know that your mobile, digital camera, web cam, tablet PC, etc., do photos in that format. Its use has proliferated so much because allow reduce the size of the image without compression 10 times, without we notice that the quality has been reduced, and this is achieved thanks to the application in the compression algorithm of the knowledge that we have of the eye.
