Where is the Action in Information Theory?
Inspired by control theory, we attempt to introduce ‘action’ into a few
theoretic frameworks. This attempt gives rise to problems ranging from
source coding with a
limited budget of side information measurements, through coding for
computer memories with a
‘rewrite’ option, to communication with ‘non-causal feedback’. I will
describe these problems, along
with some solutions and open questions.
Based on recent and ongoing work with Haim Permuter, Yossef Steinberg,
and Sergio Verdu.
