62 years of error-correction coding (efficient & reliable digital storage)
The study of error-correction coding concerns the reliable storage and transmission of digital information. In this talk I'll start with an overview of the field, which starts with the work of Claude Shannon and Richard Hamming in 1948 and 1952, respectively. I'll discuss some of the most successful and widely adopted approaches to reliable storage and communication. I'll tell you how we are doing on one of the most canonical data links -- the Mars-to-Earth link. And I'll talk about some of the current frontiers of knowledge and some of my work in the area.
