Alan Turing Alan Mathison Turing, OBE (Paddington, Londres, 23 de junio de 1912 - Wilmslow, Cheshire, 7 de junio de 1954), fue un matemático, lógico, científico de la computación, criptógrafo y filósofo británico. Es considerado uno de los padres de la ciencia de la computación siendo el precursor de la informática moderna. Proporcionó una influyente formalización de los conceptos de algoritmo y computación: la máquina de Turing. Formuló su propia versión de la hoy ampliamente aceptada Tesis de Church-Turing. Entre otras muchas cosas, también contribuyó de forma particular e incluso provocativa al enigma de si las máquinas pueden pensar, es decir a la Inteligencia Artificial. La carrera de Turing terminó súbitamente luego de ser procesado por ser homosexual. El 24 de diciembre de 2013, la reina Isabel II de Inglaterra promulgó el edicto por el que se exoneró oficialmente al matemático, quedando anulados todos los cargos en su contra.[1] Biografía[editar] Su infancia[editar] Estudios[editar]

End-to-end internationalization of Web applications - Java World A typical Web application workflow involves a user loading one of your Webpages into her browser, filling out HTML form parameters, and submitting data back to the server. The server makes decisions based on this data, sends the data to other components such as databases and Web services, and renders a response back to the browser. At each step along the way, a globally aware application must pay attention to the user's locale and the text's character encoding. The JDK provides many facilities to enable an internationalized workflow from within your Java code, and the Apache Struts framework extends it even further. In this article, you explore what you need to accomplish when developing an internationalized Web application. A refresher on character encoding Depending on what article, book, or standard you read, you'll notice subtle differences in the use of the terms character set and character encoding. The familiar series of encodings was created. or Latin Alphabet for Nordic languages.

Unicode Origin and development[edit] Unicode has the explicit aim of transcending the limitations of traditional character encodings, such as those defined by the ISO 8859 standard, which find wide usage in various countries of the world but remain largely incompatible with each other. Many traditional character encodings share a common problem in that they allow bilingual computer processing (usually using Latin characters and the local script), but not multilingual computer processing (computer processing of arbitrary scripts mixed with each other). In text processing, Unicode takes the role of providing a unique code point—a number, not a glyph—for each character. The first 256 code points were made identical to the content of ISO-8859-1 so as to make it trivial to convert existing western text. History[edit] In this document, entitled Unicode 88, Becker outlined a 16-bit character model:[3] Unicode is intended to address the need for a workable, reliable world text encoding. Versions[edit]

:: ChineseCom :: A multimedia course to improve your business | Beginners' Chinese Antes del Big Bang Antes del Big Bang, título original en francés Avant le Big Bang, es una obra en forma de ensayo de física teórica de los hermanos Igor y Grichka Bogdanov. Trata de cómo puede haber sido la era pre-cuántica, antes de la era de Planck. Se basa en sus tesis doctorales, tanto de física como de matemática teórica. Llegando a conclusiones muy controvertidas entre la comunidad científica, el llamado Escándalo Bogdanov. Argumento[editar] En esta obra, los hermanos Bogdanov proponen que el Cosmos en sí mismo, es un Ente matemático con una ecuación global que lo determina. El Cosmos sería un ente abstracto llamado Álgebra Topológica. Ponen como ejemplo: el conjunto vacío en principio está formado por ningún elemento, pero el concepto matemático de cardinal, hace que podamos decir que el número de elementos del conjunto vacío en el que se encuentra el número Cero, es uno. ( / 0 / = 1). Véase también[editar] Enlaces externos[editar]

Do you understand BMP? Chinese input methods for computers Chinese input methods are methods that allow a computer user to input Chinese characters with a standard ASCII keyboard. Most, if not all, Chinese input methods fall into one of two categories: phonetic readings or root shapes. Methods under the phonetic category usually are easier to learn but are less efficient, thus resulting in slower typing speeds because they typically require users to choose from a list of phonetically similar characters for input; whereas methods under the root shape category allow very precise and speedy input but have a difficult learning curve because they often require a thorough understanding of a character's strokes and composition. Other methods allow users to write characters directly onto touchscreens, such as those found on mobile phones and tablet computers. History[edit] An early experimental Chinese keyboard with many keys was developed by researchers of National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan, but it never came to the mainstream. Categories[edit]

Internationalization Guide for Java Web Applications One World, One Character Set I've spent enough time solving internationalization problems that can be very time consuming bugs to track down. If I could help you out, great, but even better if you got something more to share. Projects come and go and every project has their own problems. Please send me more information on the subject! If anyone has good material you'd like to share, please let me know and I'll add them to this document. Introduction This short Guide tries to cover all the details required to write a web applications that are capable of handling Unicode (UTF-8) character set in every step back and forth. Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language. You should know this is not theoretical document.

Number Bases: Introduction / Binary Numbers Number Bases: Introduction / Binary Numbers (page 1 of 3) Sections: Introduction & binary numbers, Base 4 & base 7, Octal & hexadecimal This lesson is not yet availablein Purplemath Plus. Converting between different number bases is actually fairly simple, but the thinking behind it can seem a bit confusing at first. In our customary base-ten system, we have digits for the numbers zero through nine. Instead, when we need to count to one more than nine, we zero out the ones column and add one to the tens column. The only reason base-ten math seems "natural" and the other bases don't is that you've been doing base-ten since you were a child. Binary Let's look at base-two, or binary, numbers. The first column in base-two math is the units column. A "three" in base two is actually "1 two and 1 one", so it is written as 112. Converting between binary and decimal numbers is fairly simple, as long as you remember that each digit in the binary number represents a power of two. Now YOU try it!

The Geopolitics Of China - John Mauldin's Outside the Box - InvestorsInsight Publishing No matter where in the world I am, in South Africa, in Europe, in La Jolla, there's one question I get asked over and over, "What about China?" And small wonder. The increasing impact of China in the last generation is just staggering and seemingly accelerating every day. If you're in the market for oil, minerals, arable land, equities or debt, you're bidding against Chinese government-sponsored entities with a $1 trillion warchest. And the list of markets where China is a key player grows every day. The only thing that's crystal clear about China is the need to look long term, at the underlying forces that don't change day by day. On Monday, George and his team are releasing the second in their series of Geopolitical Monographs, called The Geopolitics of China. Look at the map below that shows how China is functionally an island. John Mauldin, EditorOutside the Box THE GEOPOLITICS OF CHINA: A Great Power Enclosed Contemporary China is an island. There was another reason. Conclusion

Si eres evolucionista arderás en el infierno | Sí, eso dicen en la web Chick Publications. Además te dicen que “Estarás en el lago de fuego con millones de personas que creen que evolucionamos de los monos”. Qué error, no es cierto que “millones de personas” pensemos que evolucionamos de los monos. La viñeta está llena de errores, completamente descontextualizada. Más adelante se puede leer que en el proceso evolutivo sobreviven los más fuertes, y salen las típicas imágenes de niños desfavorecidos. Es muy triste que haya gente tan radical que nos quiera llevar al infierno. Bueno, os dejo sólo dos cuadros de la viñeta, porque me ha parecido divertidos.
