Compression for Letter-Based Fidelity Measures.

Roy Timo, Institute for Communications Engineering, Technische Universität München (TUM).

Date et lieu

Mardi 2 février 2016, 11h.

ENSEA, salle 384.


This talk will present some new results in lossy data compression, and show how these results can be applied to mixed datasets, unequal error protection, sparse sources, and data clustering. The new results include infinite and finite-blocklength achievability and converse bounds. We will give a tutorial introduction to finite-blocklength lossy data compression.

Joint work with Lars Palzer and Gerhard Kramer.
