Place: Weir 106

Title: Coding theory for scalable media delivery
Speaker: Michael Luby, VP Technology, Qualcomm Inc.

Abstract: I will describe some work that I have been involved with over the years that is focused on media delivery and media streaming.  The presentation in particular overviews the RaptorQ (IETF RFC 6330) technology, and describes how this technology has been and could be used in commercial deployments. No specialized background is necessary for this presentation.
