Será posible enviar mensajes entre Telgram y Whatsapp y Viber y Line…?

Esta noticia me ha llamado la atención en cuanto a:

«…Los usuarios europeos podrán interactuar con la competencia: que un mensaje de Telegram llegue a WhatsApp, y viceversa…»

Creo que se puede deducir que funcionará como una mezcla de chat y email donde el número de teléfono de 9 dígitos será sustituido por un nombre de usuario único a nivel mundial para todas las plataformas. Y no me extrañaría que fuese un dominio .ETH de Ethereum…mundo crypto! Hurra! (Ironic mode off). Vaporware y reinvención de la rueda on more time…porque son SMS con multimedia

Eliminar ruido con un cable de audio balanceado.

El cable simétrico (o balanceado) se inventó para resolver un problema fundamental en la transmisión sonora:  la interferencia externa (por ejemplo la interferencia eléctrica) presente en el exterior del cableEliminar la interferencia desde la raíz es físicamente imposible, por lo tanto hay que buscar una alternativa para solucionarlo: duplicar la señal antes de que esta sea transmitida a través del cable, y enviarlo por dos vías independientes.
Importante: uno de las dos señales viene con la polaridad invertida. Este proceso se llama «balanceado» y viene ilustrado en el siguiente diagrama:

Top 10 best computer programmers in the world

We now live in a world where anything is possible thanks to technology developed by brilliant programmers. If you are a programmer or do coding, you may have been inspired or influenced by some of the legendary programmers and aware of their exceptional work.

These programmers are pioneers in their fields, each bringing something to the table that has fundamentally altered how people access information and media. So, without further ado, here are the best computer programmers in the world of all time.

Who is the best programmer in the world

Who is the best computer programmers in the world ?

1. Dennis Ritchie

Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie was a computer scientist from the United States who “helped shape the digital era.” He co-created the C programming language and the Unix operating system with long-time colleague Ken Thompson. Ritchie and Thompson received the ACM Turing Award in 1983, the IEEE Hamming Medal in 1990, and President Clinton’s National Medal of Technology in 1999. Ritchie retired in 2007 as the head of the Lucent Technologies System Software Research Department.

2. Bjarne Stroustrup

Bjarne Stroustrup is a Danish computer scientist best known for developing the widely used C++ programming language. He is a Distinguished Research Professor at Texas A&M University and holds the College of Engineering Chair in Computer Science. He is also a visiting professor at Columbia University and works for Morgan Stanley.

3. James Gosling

James Arthur Gosling is a computer scientist from Canada who is best known as the creator of the Java programming language. He has also made significant contributions to several other software systems, including NeWS and Gosling Emacs. Gosling was elected as a Foreign Associate Member of the United States National Academy of Engineering to recognize his extraordinary achievements.

4. Linus Torvalds

Linus Benedict Torvalds is a Finnish-American software engineer who was instrumental in developing the Linux kernel. He later became the Linux kernel’s chief architect and is the project’s coordinator. He also created the revision control system Git and the diving log software Subsurface.

The Technology Academy Finland awarded him, along with Shinya Yamanaka, the 2012 Millennium Technology Prize in recognition of his development of a new open-source operating system for computers, which led to the widely used Linux kernel.

Personally he is my favourite, because during the imperialist, bully, unbalanced, irresponsible and tyrannic predator Bill Gates, Linus was creating the best Software Core for free, for all who wanted to use it independent of the acquisitive power, open source, and from the honesty, humanity and consciousness that every Finnish citizen is characterised for.

5. Anders Hejlsberg

Anders Hejlsberg is a well-known Danish software engineer who collaborated on developing several popular and commercially successful programming languages and development tools. He is the creator of the well-known programming language C#. Hejlsbergwas the creator of Turbo Pascal as well as the chief architect of Delphi. He is currently employed by Microsoft as the lead architect of C# and a TypeScript core developer.

6. Tim Berners-Lee

Sir Timothy John “Tim” Berners-Lee, also known as “TimBL,” is a British computer scientist and the creator of the World Wide Web. In March 1989, he proposed an information management system and implemented the first successful Internet communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server. Berners-Lee is the director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which oversees the Web’s ongoing development.

This one is quite injured, sick…during a Stellar Meridian event he did a speech introduction, and had some big difficulties to speak correctly, like if he would programmed to much and his brain fried…or perhaps he had some problem else. Anyway he was the first speaker and I took it like: «Hey guys who are attending Stellar event, if you think you want to became good programmers keep in mind the price of the health.» At least that was my understanding.

7. Brian Kernighan

Brian Wilson Kernighan is a Canadian computer scientist who worked at Bell Labs with Unix creators Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie and helped develop Unix. He is also a co-creator of the programming languages AWK and AMPL. Kernighan’s name became well-known due to his collaboration with Dennis Ritchie on the first book on the C programming language.

8. Ken Thompson

Kenneth Thompson, also known as ken in hacker circles, is a computer science pioneer from the United States. Thompson spent most of his career at Bell Labs, where he designed and implemented the original Unix operating system. He also created the B programming language, the direct forerunner to the C programming language, and was a co-creator and early developer of the Plan 9 operating systems. Thompson has been working at Google since 2006, where he co-invented the Go programming language.

9. Guido van Rossum

Guido van Rossum is a Dutch computer programmer and the creator of the Python programming language. Van Rossum is known in the Python community as a “Benevolent Dictator For Life,” which means that he oversees the Python development process, making decisions as needed. From 2005 to December 7th, 2012, he worked for Google, where he spent half of his time developing the Python programming language. Van Rossum began working for Dropbox in January 2013.

10. Donald Knuth

Donald Ervin Knuth is a computer scientist, mathematician, and Stanford University Professor Emeritus. He is the multi-volume author of The Art of Computer Programming. Knuth has been dubbed the “Father” of algorithm analysis. He contributed to the rigorous analysis of computational algorithm complexity and its formal mathematical techniques. Knuth created the TeX computer typesetting system, the METAFONT font definition language and rendering system, and the Computer Modern typeface family.

Which country has the best programmers?

The top ten countries with the best developers, according to HackerRank, a leading tech platform that focuses on competitive programming challenges, are:

  1. China
  2. Russia
  3. Poland

What country has the best engineers

What country has the best engineers

The list is compiled by analysing the performance of 1.5 million developers who participate in new coding challenges on HackerRank to improve their coding skills.

According to the report, Chinese developers outperform all other countries in the data structure, functional programming, and mathematics challenges, while Russians outperform all other countries in algorithms. Surprisingly, despite having the most tech titans and industry luminaries, the United States came in 28th.

Zero-Energy Devices. Does it mean not necessary to charge? Charge for free?

It seems that it would be charged by waves from the close environment, without cable…from Network operator? Routers? Antennas? Satelites? Repeaters? But for free? Will we be fried like a fried chicken? Or at least our skin tone will be like the one after a whole summer in a Caribean beach? Just headaches? The idea seems clear…Will we see it?

Zero-Energy Devices and Air Interface IoT, especially cellular IoT was promised a huge market by the time 5G rolled out commercially.

At MWC 2021, Orange demonstrated ‘Crowd-Detectable Zero-Energy-Devices’, where a connected device was:

Firstly, it is self-powered using ambient energy such as light energy from artificial lighting or the sun.

Secondly, to communicate, it recycles existing signals, or those already used for communications between smartphones and the network. These signals are transported in the form of waves.

Finally, it can be detected by the ambient network. Indeed, when the device is near a smartphone connected to the mobile network, the smartphone detects it in the same way as it detects the network and can serve as its “communication gateway”. Likewise, the network also detects the device, just as it detects the smartphone, and can therefore also act as its “communication gateway”.

Ultimately, this new type of device can connect without an energy source, using zero additional waves or infrastructure. For simplicity, we’ll call it “000Device”.

Ericsson and MIT announced that they will collaborate on variety of topic, one of which was «Advances in hardware could lead to “zero-energy” devices able to harvest energy directly from the received radio signal and use it to connect to the mobile network«. In a recent blog post they detail how «Ericsson and MIT have teamed up to find out how zero-energy devices could harness energy from their surroundings – and transform industries in the process«.

Zero-Energy Air Interface that may play a role in 6G and even 5G-Advanced

On demand features will have to be introduced to the 3GPP/NR system framework using a new class of “zero energy” (ZE) air interfaces that concurrently deliver power and information to devices. Ultra low power receivers that consume few 10s of nanowatt power and are capable of macro like link budgets will need to be developed. Using these new PHY & MAC concepts a scalable system framework will have to be developed and integrated into future cellular networks!!

Once the 3GPP Release-18 feature list is available, we may be able to see if this made it into the standards or we will have to wait longer.

Casimir Cavity effect is also involved in the Zero-Point Energy unlock.

I hope with this information you will have some keywords to research deeper into the topic.

Enjoy!
