ICT FOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS 1
The course introduces key concepts about information representation in data storage and processing systems. Basic knowledge on the characterization of continuous and discrete information, on coding and compression techniques, and on a few encryption algorithms will be provided.
The course will introduce the topic of information representation in data storing and processing systems. Basic knowledge on the characterization of continuous and discrete information, on coding and compression techniques, and on some cryptography algorithms will be provided.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
After the course, the student shall know basic concepts about information representation in systems for the storage, the processing, and the transmission of data, signals, images, and video. He/she will also have a basic knowledge about analog and digital information; analog-to-digital conversion; source coding; audio, image, and video compression; and introductory notions of cryptography.
The concept of information: continuous and discrete signals and messages; basic key ideas of a communication system or network and of an information processing system. Continuous information sources: characterization and analog-to-digital conversion. Discrete information sources and coding: quantitative information measures and entropy; discrete source coding, examples of coding algorithms (e.g., Shannon-Fano, Huffman, Lempel-Ziv-Welch); basic concepts of cryptography and information security.
