Information embedding on actions Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: The problem of optimal actuation for channel and source coding was recently formulated and solved in a number of relevant scenarios. In this class of models, actions are taken at encoders or decoders, either to acquire side information in an efficient way or to control or probe effectively the channel state. In this paper, the problem of embedding information on the actions is studied for both the source and the channel coding setups. In both cases, a decoder is present that observes only a function of the actions taken by an …
