One of the “fathers” of modern anthropology, Claude Lévi-Strauss, once described the scientist as “not a person who gives the right answers, [but] one who asks the right questions.”
Scientific progress, by extension, might be measured best not by the answers we get, but by the questions we ask to get those answers.
Questions are maybe our best tool in relating with ourselves and with the environment. Asking questions says not so much about the problematic nature of our environ [...]
Even since we are in kindergartner until we take our grandchildren to visit the Natural Science Museum, we try to learn something. Luckily, learning is in our human nature. We try to learn something about everything and everything about something. And I think that this is great. Yet, what is even greater and maybe more meaningful is what we do with the things we've learned; how we make use of that information and how we change our course of action according to the data that we gathered.
Image Reading and Object Recognition in Images is an important task and challenge in image processing and computer vision. A simple search for "automatic object recognition" on Google scholar will provide you with a long list of articles mixing all sort of sophisticated equations and algorithms, dating from early '90s until present. This means that the subject has been highly intriguing for the researchers in the field from the very beginning of search but is still a work that seems to be in pro [...]

Whenever we talk about SEO and the idea of optimization, some of the first things that come to our mind are content, backlinks or keywords. This is not wrong, but it isn't exhausting the possibilities of SEO either. Especially since there are plenty of factors that weigh in a page rank that are not purely backlink or content-driven. So it should not have come as too much of a surprise when in 2010 Google announced that page load speed was to become such a factor. Of course, one factor out of mor [...]
Fortunately, we are all different. This means that different users require different necessities, and therefore, different dashboards and displays. After being closely in touch with our clients, we realized that "one-size-fits-all" dashboards are quite difficult to read and use. As nothing brings us as much joy as a happy customer with healthy search engine rankings, we started working on a new dashboard, based on the idea that it should be fully customizable to fit our clients needs. After long [...]
Last time we looked at the Google’s Answer Boxes, we came up with quite a handful of interesting observations. However, we couldn’t quite give you the best explanation of what it takes to get your website there. We gathered you needed to be regarded as an authority site, but what does that really translate into?
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...' - Isaac Asimov
So we set out to find out more about th [...]
Google Indexation is one of those matters that not many understand completely but, one way or another, everybody needs it. Why do I say that? Although I know you are already familiar with this piece of information, let me remind you that:
When your customers are doing a Google search, they aren't actually searching the web. What they're searching for is the Google's index of the web.
This means that if your website is indexed by Google then a potential user will be able to find it in one of [...]
In a world where Google tries to make the SERP a safer place for its users, it seems SEO’s are exploring any opportunity in order to squeeze more visibility. Not long ago Google decided to remove Authorship photo’s from the results page in order to create a homogeneous and uniform look. One official explanation was given by John Mueller on a post from his Google+ account:
We've been doing lots of work to clean up the visual design of our search results, in particular creating a better m [...]
You may have noticed that when you use Google to search for a certain answer to a question, a lot of times you actually get some sort of answer and not just a series of search results. For instance, if you’ve just recently made a terrible decision about changing your go-to barber’s shop and would like to find out how soon the damage will fade away, you might ask Google “how fast does hair grow”, to which the famed oracle of wisdom will give an actual answer, in what we will refer to as [...]
