Talk: Efficient Data Encoding

In computer science we often encode and store data files in their binary representation. When the data files are very descriptive, such as audio or video files, the binary representations may be inefficiently large.

In this talk I will discuss the Huffman encoding algorithm which is used to produce short binary encodings of data files.
