In the last three decades of the existence of Microsoft's operative system Windows, has changed many things. But over time not only is the software, but its customers too - their appearance, their hardware, their favorite tools have been changed!
The picture which made FreeMake.com shows a simple way to display elements that different generations of users will find themselves in and will take you on a journey through various memories, services and programs. Maybe some of the operative systems are not mentioned (like Windows Milenium).. Do you recognize some of the evolutions?
Maybe you've seen or heard about a program called visual basic (which is an ultimate easy language) and it seemed interesting and, you want to learn some coding with it. Then you first need to know how and why is used that program and, what is that language which it contains. I will provide a little description of Visual Basic.
Visual Basic (VB) is a programming environment and language created by Microsoft, which based the language for beginners in programming and to have easy environment and it's easy to use. Microsoft developed VB to make it easy for developers to write programs for the Windows operating system.
Similar to VB, programmers wrote programs in the C or C++ programming language, which had no built-in support for accessing Windows functions like VB has. VB does have such support as part of its object-oriented programming approach. Object-oriented programming involves the creation and application of virtual blueprints called classes, and objects made from those classes.
First after you know what visual basic is you can go on with simple coding and at the end with more harder. The simplest code you can use is the msgbox command. Msgbox command is the message box which the user can see it and interact.
A tutorial about that made by us is under this text. What we will make is a simple msgbox program that is interactive, when the user clicks on the button he gets message saying "Hello World" and there is only ok button. Here is the video:
Those who follow the technology know that most interest among computer scientists today is the development of advanced artificial intelligence. Computers are still running database programs (list of instructions) that say that if A situation happened, they should make B. In a video game it means that if the computer player sees opponent should aim with his weapon and shoot. Of course in practice the algorithms are more complex than the examples described above, but they are only algorithms - computers don't have the ability to think, reflect and understand things, they just do the instructions given by the developers.
What really excites scientists all around the world is the idea that one day we will have real intelligence in computers. That's why we weren't amazed when we found out recently that the bulk of the development budget of Microsoft invested in the study of artificial intelligence, with the immediate objective is to develop a virtual assistant who can truly understand the user. The technology already exists currently in prototype form and is in the testing phase.
The first implementation of this technology will be Cortana, virtual assistant for Windows Phone devices. What is known so far is that this assistant you can talk to a male or female voice, and that should be the first assistant who really understands and understands complex issues.
This is rather dramatic assertion given that artificial intelligence has so far only had the ability to answer simple questions such as" What is the capital of Germany" or "The clock is now in Thessaloniki" - issues where the computer does not need to understand or understand something, just to connect facts.
That means that a human will be able to ask the mobile "Why I can't get slim even though I'm dieting ," and he responds "because you do not walk enough, and you don't enter all your snacks in the program for calories"? Perhaps examples seem absurd, but according to what Microsoft talks, their researchers develop artificial intelligence that monitors and examines and understands our personal habits... The first application we saw a week ago when Microsoft boasts a smart elevators that predict that floor would like to go according to our habits and tendencies .
Referring to Cortana, virtual assistant for Windows Phone - you know that first appeared on the Nokia Lumia models in April. Other Information about Cortana are really clear is not clear which with the level of intelligence will launch the assistant, nor are the other features of Cortana. For now, most experts predict that this Windows Phone assistant should at least offer weather information , calendar control, alarm, telephone calls and contacts, i.e to offer the same basic functions as Siri from Apple.
