The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption

The smooth human animal spends upwards of eleven hours out of each 24 in a kingdom of continuous intake. now not consuming, yet gorging on details without end spewed from the monitors and audio system we carry pricey. simply as now we have grown morbidly overweight on sugar, fats, and flour—so, too, have we develop into gluttons for texts, quick messages, emails, RSS feeds, downloads, movies, prestige updates, and tweets.

We're all scuffling with a hurricane of distractions, buffeted with notifications and tempted through tasty tidbits of knowledge. And simply as an excessive amount of junk meals can result in weight problems, an excessive amount of junk details may end up in cluelessness. the data vitamin indicates you the way to thrive during this info glut—what to seem for, what to prevent, and the way to be selective. within the approach, writer Clay Johnson explains the function details has performed all through historical past, and why following his prescribed nutrition is key for everybody who strives to be shrewdpermanent, efficient, and sane.

In the data nutrition, you will:
notice why eminent students are frightened approximately our kingdom of consciousness and basic intelligence
research how today’s media—Big Info—give us precisely what we need: content material that confirms our ideals
discover ways to take steps to increase information literacy, realization health, and a fit humorousness
turn into engaged within the economics of data via studying tips on how to present solid info prone
similar to a standard, fit nutrients nutrition, the data nutrition isn't approximately eating less—it’s approximately discovering a fit stability that works for you!

Our goal: we shall show that the Huffman algorithm necessarily produces an optimal binary prefix code. 30 1 Data Compaction But first several characteristic properties of optimal codes: Proposition Let C be an optimal binary prefix code, associated with p = (p0 , p1 , . . , pN −1 ). Then we necessarily have: 1. pj > pk =⇒ lj ≤ lk . 2. The code will have an even number of words of maximal length. 3. Whenever several code words have the same length, two of them will be equal except for the last bit.

5) The situation as in exercise (4). Suppose that all probabilities are powers of 12 : pj = 2−lj , 0 ≤ j ≤ N − 1. Show that in this case the arithmetic code word of a source word s1 s2 · · · sn is equal to the Shannon code word (obtained by simple concatenation of the code words for s1 , s2 , . . , sn ). (6) A memoryless source, producing the N letters a0 , a1 , . . , aN −1 according to the (“decreasing”) probability distribution p = (p0 , p1 , . . , pN −1 ). Let s1 and s2 be two source words such that c(s1 ) = c(s2 ) (they have the same arithmetic code word).

Then C is optimal for S. Proof The lengths of the code words (L for C , l for C): L(j1 ,j2 ) + 1, if j = j1 , j2 , lj = else. Lj , One gets for the average lengths (L for C , l for C): l = j=j1 ,j2 pj lj + pj1 lj1 + pj2 lj2 = j=j1 ,j2 pj Lj + p(j1 ,j2 ) L(j1 ,j2 ) + pj1 + pj2 = L + pj1 + pj2 . ). Thus, L minimal =⇒ l minimal. 1 Entropy Coding 31 Corollary The Huffman algorithm produces optimal binary prefix codes. In particular, the average word length l of the code words is constant for all Huffman codes associated with a fixed probability distribution p (note that you will be frequently obliged to make choices when constructing Huffman trees).
