Information-Theoretic Tradeoffs in Distributed Hypothesis Testing

Talk by Dr. Michele Wigger

Date: 24.11.21  Time: 15.00 - 16.00  Room: Y27H25

(**This eSeminar will take place in hybrid mode. The in-person venue is Y27 H25, University of Zurich. You can also follow the talk on Zoom using the same meeting details as previous seminars. If you do not have meeting details, please contact simran.tinani@math.uzh.ch **)

This talk presents an information-theoretic study of the rate-performance tradeoffs in distributed hypothesis testing, with a particular focus on systems with average communication-rate constraints. Different hypothesis testing scenarios will be considered, including multi-hop sensor communications and systems with multiple decision centres, where performance tradeoffs between the various decisions arise.
