This is the complex technology that allows us to listen in the deep sea

Hydrophones

Analyze the sounds that occur in the ocean is not a simple task. This activity has even been compared to space exploration; the difference is that in space there are several companies and agencies investigating, while the ocean is still pending and subject to some unknown point. Listening underwater work currently focuses on three disciplines: marine biology, geology and geophysics, and military activity.

For this type of underwater research succeed calls are used hydrophones, also known as underwater microphones, which are devices designed to capture and locate sources of sound in water, where its complexity and its wide range of possibilities make their use key for various tasks. Today we will know a little more about them and some of its major holdings.

The artificial brain is getting closer: IBM created the first artificial neurons phase change

The artificial brain

Although we have long been talking about computers as artificial brains, actually it has always been a metaphor. Although less and less. IBM has managed to implement a system of 500 artificial neurons with phase change technology they want to simulate the performance of organic brains. In a way that never before had gotten.

For years, scientists have tried to imitate the versatile computing capabilities of neurons. Today, it seems that is the only way to take a step beyond artificial intelligence projects that are underway and that promise to change the world.
