Ten years ago, the word “AI” was not used very often, except if we were talking about a futuristic world where cars can fly; however, nowadays, if you read about a new breakthrough in the field of artificial intelligence, you will not be surprised at all! As technology advances and man’s hunger to satisfy his curiosity will never end, you will find that the dream you once had for the future is not very far away. Actually there are already robots and applications with artificial intelligence like drones and IoT, so are we already in ‘the future’? Truth to be told, we are still far behind fully understanding and applying artificial intelligence, because the human mind is very complex and has a lot of peculiarities, making the process of imitating the human mind and use it in ap ...
How Augmented Could We Go?
Technological advancement gets tricky by the time. At some point we will need to admit that it has no limits. Since the discovery of the nucleus and technology has been jogging in a very high speed, if we didn’t catch up with it, we will flip over in life. One of the most important technologies nowadays is augmented reality. Augmented reality is when digital information is overlaid onto the real physical world. The process happens in fractions of a second but the technique used is a bit complex. The procedure depends merely on sensors to detect objects and their measurement then assign the suitable digital image to it. The software as well was precisely designed to realistically integrate augmentations with the real world using ARML (Augmented Reality Markup Language) Remem ...
Out Of The Blue
It’s a Trap! The cosmos, other galaxies, Pluto, Mars, etc; all of these have been Nasa’s concerns. However, the most important of which is finding any source of life in this wide universe. They’re not looking for E.T or Chewbacca (if you’re following the buzz, you’d know that they already found him). The kind of life Nasa is willing to discover could be some bacteria, fungus or plants that are able to grow despite the cosmos’ crucial conditions. On the 2nd of May, 2017, a group of scientists were able to discover a cold dwarf star with sev en planets revolving around it. (Honorable mention: Bill Nye wanted to call them by the seven dwarfs’ names) the system was then referred to as Trappist-1. It’s located 4o light years away, with the cons ...
Between Present and The Past: Farewell Moore’s Law
“Ladies and gentlemen, good evening to you! A group of scientists in the laboratory of Telephone Company was researching in a field of metals called semiconductors and they wanted to find out what greater scientific value these metals might have. Transistors are entirely different in construction and work. It has a completely new principle!” This was the introduction of a new episode of a scientific program upon the invention of the transistor. In 1947, scientists discovered the transistor effect then the invention of it came to life. While in 1958 the first integrated circuit was made. No surprise that those three scientists who invented the transistors were granted the Nobel Prize. As our life before 1947 is not the same at all after it. Nowadays, our life is full of electronic de ...
BIM; The Age Of Digital Information
Day by day world changes and new modes of thought pass into our lives, trying to create easier one. Civil engineering, as one of the most important aspects of life, and one of the oldest engineering domains in history which deals with construction, design, and infrastructure is trying to keep up with the development of modern technology to meet the needs of the changing-society. One of these serious attempts is ‘BIM;’ a technique that deals with the constructions’ projects from design through construction into operations, by creating 3 dimensional virtual- model that contains all of the key project information. The ‘BIM’ technique is widely-known to be directly related to ‘Revit’, but the truth is: ‘Revit’ is one of software desi ...
