Information theory describes the fundamental limits on our ability to store, process and communicate data, whether in natural or artificial systems. Understanding and approaching these limits is important in a wide variety of topics in informatics, including compression, communication, machine learning, and data science. For more information, see the 5 min introductory video and preparation advice, and the course catalogue entry.
The Information Theory course is not running in the 2015/16 session.
For reference, you can see an archive of the 2014/15 course materials. The course may return in 2016/17, but that has not yet been decided.
