#1 – What Is Information
The more we learn about the nature of information, the more deep connections we discover. It seems like it is sometimes useful to see the universe as information rather than matter.
In this pilot episode of Codexpanse we will discuss the implications of Claude Shannon's seminal paper "A Mathematical Theory of Communication", talk about the connection between entropy in physics and in information, and fantasize about the future of AI-based communication.
