Arden L. Bement Jr. Distinguished Lecture
Monday, November 09, 2015 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EST
Fowler Hall, Stewart Center
Szpankowski, recipient of the inaugural Arden L. Bement Jr. Award, will speak on "Shannon Information Theory and Beyond" at 1:30 p.m. In his talk, after reviewing two main results of Claude Shannon's work concerning compression and reliable communication, Szpankowski will show how modifying the underlying model to bring it closer to modern-day applications may render these problems almost intractable. He also will present models and methods for quantifying information embodied in structures.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
