Webinar on Rec_nstruc_ion of Inf_rmat_on Us_ng Mat_emati_s

The Webinar on Rec_nstruc_ion of Inf_rmat_on Us_ng Mat_emati_s took place on Thursday, October 1st, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Tony Varilly-Alvarado, Professor of Mathematics at Rice University in the United States, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker began the virtual event by explaining the objectives of code theory through the example of “redundency,” which by fixing only one letter becomes the word “redundancy.” By creating a code with 4 words of 6 letters, which can be 0s or 1s, Tony Varilly-Alvarado described how to deal with a situation in which we receive a message that contains erroneous data or missing data. The speaker also presented two applications of this concept: the compact discs and how Facebook stores our photos.
