    How Does a Transistor Work?

    In this phone, there are nearly 100 million transistors, in this computer there’s over a billion. The transistor is in virtually every electronic device we use: TV’s, radios, Tamagotchis. But how does it work? Well the basic principle is actually incredibly simple. It works just like this switch, so it controls the flow of electric current. It can be off, so you could call that the zero state or it could be on, the one state. And this is how all of our information is now stored and processed, in zeros and ones, little bits of electric current. But unlike this switch, a transistor doesn’t have any moving parts. And…

    Behind the Mic: The Science of Talking with Computers

    [MUSIC PLAYING] [SPEAKING IN FRENCH] [VOICES SPEAKING] [LAUGHTER] [COMPUTER NOISES] GEOFFREY HINTON: We come into this world with the innate abilities to learn to interact with other sentient beings. Suppose you had to interact with other people by writing little messages to them. It’d be a real pain. And that’s how we interact with computers. It’s much easier just to talk to them. It’s just so much easier if the computers could understand what we’re saying. And for that, you need really good speech recognition. NARRATOR: The first speech recognition system was developed by Bell Laboratories in 1952. It could only recognize numbers spoken by one person. In the 1970s,…

    Two-way audio & 3D FPV [email protected] video telepresence over the web with head tracking

    Immersive Telepresence over the Web has never been so easy. The software at the heart of the little robot shown in this demo employes standard web technologies to send and receive encrypted audio video and data streams from one or more remote peers in the same network or in the cloud. In this simplified scenario a plugin-free web application tracks the smartphone orientation to move the stereoscopic camera head of the remote robot accordingly. The orientation data sent from the browser to the embedded server in the robot is processed in real time. On other side there is the robot capturing what it sees with its “HD eyes” and sending…

    IETF and Internet Hall of Fame 2013: Henning Schulzrinne

    Henning Schulzrinne I’ve been involved in the Internet technical community since the early ’90s, primarily in my academic role as faculty at Columbia and previously as a researcher at Bell Labs and in a German research lab here in Berlin, actually. And secondly, more recently, as a staff member for the Federal Communications Commission. In that role, I have been participating in traditional academic research, primarily in the networking realm, but also, working primarily within the Internet Engineering Task Force on standards development for Internet applications, primarily real-time applications. The topics I have worked on probably the most are, as I said, the real-time Internet applications, Voice over IP and…

    How to take a picture of a black hole | Katie Bouman

    In the movie “Interstellar,” we get an up-close look at a supermassive black hole. Set against a backdrop of bright gas, the black hole’s massive gravitational pull bends light into a ring. However, this isn’t a real photograph, but a computer graphic rendering — an artistic interpretation of what a black hole might look like. A hundred years ago, Albert Einstein first published his theory of general relativity. In the years since then, scientists have provided a lot of evidence in support of it. But one thing predicted from this theory, black holes, still have not been directly observed. Although we have some idea as to what a black hole…
