Redundancy as a Tool of Communication

What is Redundancy in Information Theory? A communication or message will generally contain one or more redundancies in order to avoid misinterpretation. Redundancy involves repeating or giving context to a communication to avoid miscommunication or misinterpretation....

It’s an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. is an information theory blog working towards a definition of Information Theory and its implications for communications and economics. Information Theory is an emerging pre-quantum idea for understanding the fundamental nature of the universe using concepts derived from Claude Shannon’s general information theory.

…what concepts are hovering just outside our grasp, outside your grasp and mine, implicit in our technology and in our biology, in our arms, our fingers, our cars, our planes, our cell phones, and our computers? What simple concepts are hovering in the air around us day after day? Simple concepts that we don’t get. Concepts that we don’t grasp because we haven’t invented the words and the ideas that will capture them.
