Sunday with a Scientist: Through The Net - How We Detect and Correct Errors in Data

We live in a world where we create and interact with data every day. We use our phones and computers to transmit data via messages, emails, and files, from one person to the next. The world is also a noisy place and errors can occur whenever data is transmitted from one device to another. We generally do not notice errors because most times they are fixed before we even see that an error has occurred. Join computer scientist Dr. Bonita Sharif from the UNL Department of Computer Science and Engineering and her graduate students, Cole Peterson and Niloofar Mansoor, in this game-driven activity where you will learn about how data is transmitted and checked for errors.
