This internship project with Deep Compression Inc. aims to produce a prototype demonstrating a new technique for asymmetric lossless data compression. Unlike conventional compression techniques, this prototype will allow representational information to be recovered using an algorithmic recovery procedure, algorithmic self-organizing structure (ASOS). This new approach could pave the way for previously unprecedented levels of data compression – a potentially revolutionary technology with the likelihood of affecting such diverse sectors as mathematics, life sciences, computing science, geoinformatics, the environment and the entertainment industry.
