The Webinar on How to Use Math to Detect Errors? took place on Thursday, November 19th, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Gabriela Jeronimo, Professor at the University of Buenos Aires and Researcher at the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research of Argentina, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
The invited speaker started the virtual event by explaining the types of errors that we are referring to and described the origin of self-correcting codes. Gabriela Jeronimo presented with examples that the parity control code detects an error but does not help to correct it. The speaker also pointed out that the repetition code corrects an error but you need to send the triple amount of information, whereas the 2D parity control code corrects an error and saves redundancy.
