EITAGlobal to organize webinar on “Lossless Data Compression Methods and Compression Performance Met


(Free Press Release) Dr. Raymond Moberly, a consulting subject matter expert in the field of Information Theory, will be the Speaker at a webinar that EITAGlobal, a leading continuing education training provider in the IT space, will organize on January 28, 2014. The topic of this webinar is, “Lossless Data Compression Methods and Compression Performance Metrics”.

EITAGlobal to organize webinar on “Lossless Data Compression Methods and Compression Performance Met


This webinar looks at the foundations of data compression in the context of the broader subject of information theory.


The present information age is all about more and more data. The Internet, Big Data, Cloud Computing, and data storage requirements are measured in ever-increasing data. How does the Net handle this near deluge of data? Data compression is being looked at as a solution to counter this ever-expanding flood. But is it trustworthy?


Apart from data safety, there are other multiple and complex issues to be looked at. Are some types of data more compressible than other data? How do the methods of lossless data compression (covered) differ from loss-causing data compression? The speaker will lead participants into a meaningful and perceptive discussion on areas such as lossless compression, its limitations, and the tradeoffs between storage reduction and increased processing required to compact and re-expand data.


The speaker will impart valuable insight into how lossless compression works and why the techniques are robust and trustworthy. The measure of information is defined formally as entropy, a term that Claude Shannon borrowed from quantum mechanics.


This webinar will offer examples of Huffman coding and dictionary methods that fuel the popular dominant methods of Lemple and Ziv. Transform methods, such as the Lemple Ziv Welch, which provide advantages for compressing data with measurable periodicity, will be discussed, as will the closely related to data compression methods and data deduplication, which reduce the overall redundancy across one or more data storage systems.


This session will cover the following topics:

o Entropy as the measure of information

o Shannon's Source Coding Theorem

o Huffman Trees and Huffman Coding

o Arithmetic coding

o Dictionary methods

o Transform methods

o Data deduplication

o Implementation considerations, Open Source software, Hardware compression chips

o Performance


When: January 28, 2014, 10:00 AM PST | 01:00 PM EST
