Learning Information Theory

I took a course on Information Theory years ago when I was taking master degree and completely forgot about everything when I need to learn it quickly to use the theory to support my arguments for an cryptographic issues.

I read some books that only caused more desperation, so I decided to google some introductions about information theory, and find these brilliant video tutorials:

Sometimes video tutorial seems to offer more advantages to me than reading textbooks. It’s easier to understand and does not cause dizziness or sleepiness, ha ha ah. OK now I have enough understanding to continue on writing next publication, and using information theory as one of the arguments. Yay 🙂
