neutro-, neuter-, neutr-, neut- +
(Latin: neither of two; neither one nor the other)
2. In network design, the principle that an electronic public information network; such as, the internet, will be useful if all content, sites, and platforms are treated equally.
In the United States, Congressional legislation has been introduced to allow discrimination by broadband carriers on the basis of quality of service (tiering).
Critics maintain that, to remain neutral, the internet must forward packets on a first-come, first-served basis, without regard for quality of service.3. The principle that internet users should be able to access any web content they choose and use any applications they choose, without restrictions or limitations imposed by their internet service provider (ISP).
In other words, this term refers to a network as not favoring one application or certain web content over another, but rather it should provide services in a nondiscriminatory, unrestricted fashion.4. A "level playing field" for internet transport which refers to the absence of restrictions or priorities placed on the type of content carried over the internet by the carriers and ISPs that run the major systems.
5. The term used to prevent private companies from censoring web sites and giving the federal government the power to censor web sites.
2. Referring to undeveloped, non-functioning, or no sexual organs.
We now have three gender-characterized robots: androids, gynoids, and neuteroids.
This anthropoidal image is NOT a good example of the masculine nor the feminine humanoid-types of robots because it is a neuteroid; and so, it should not be identified as either an android nor a gynoid.
In other words, not supporting or favoring either side in a war, a dispute, or a contest.2. Neither moral nor immoral; neither good nor evil or neither right nor wrong.
3. Of no distinctive quality or characteristics or type; that is, possessing no distinctive quality or revealing no attitude or feeling about a person, situation, or thing.
4. Having no net electric charge; not electrified; or a neutral wire that has a zero electric charge or potential.
5. Not strongly colored; that is, not strongly or strikingly colored and so relatively inconspicuous and able to blend easily with other colors.
6. Having only a limited ability to react chemically; not active.
A neutral chemical which is neither an acid nor a base or neither acidic nor alkaline.7. A reference to a gear or being in a position in which no power is transmitted from a engine to the moving parts; a gear with no motion transmitted.
2. A line or plane, in a beam under transverse pressure, at which the fibers in the structure are neither stretched nor compressed, or where the longitudinal stress is zero.
2. In electricity, in a polyphase system, a conductor which does not carry a current unless the system becomes unbalanced.
It is used on a camera to decrease the amount of light entering a camera when the lens cannot be stopped down sufficiently for use with a given film.2. A light-absorbing filter whose absorption spectrum is moderately flat.
Depending on the type, the absorption curve is flat primarily in the visible spectral range, or it may extend to varying degrees beyond the visible range.
For video microscopy, this is an important procedure since the absorbance may or may not extend into the near-infrared region where the sensitivity of many video image pickup devices is very high.
2. A political policy or advocacy of nonalignment or noninvolvement in conflicting alliances nor of attempting to mediate or conciliate in conflicts between states.
The policy of not taking sides in a dispute; especially, in an international conflict or the policy, practice, or attitude of neutrality, noninvolvement, or nonalignment with power blocs.
