Video - How Do Error Correction Codes Work?

How do we communicate digital information reliably in the presence of noise? Hamming's (7,4) error correction code demonstrates how parity bits can help us recover from transmission/storage errors. This must be taken into account when thinking about Shannon's idea of channel capacity and information rate. (hamming code, error correction)
