ON WHAT DEPENDS THE TRANSMISSION OF DATA
encoding / decoding
network delays could hinder it
medium used to transmit
whether it has to be compressed into one form and then decompressed eg things like false color in images on spacecraft / satellites
decoding the data
three aspects: signal, source, receiver
uncertainty and how we quantify it
HOW CAN WE ALTER THE PERCEPTION OF SIGNALS | INFORMATION ?
Using filters? context! << oohhhhhh!!!
difference between data and information–
data as just constant random input
information as data organised and contextualised to express something
i like the idea of context of comparing based on scale / relative size, even like a context of a different software / trying to open files in software they weren’t meant to be opened in, the medium of it reminds me of obsolete devices/technologies
perception is all about the receiver? adding randomness or uncertainty, filtering (eg Kalman filters), probability, adding events prior and after the one we are looking at (eg posterior probability)
SYNTHESIS & DIGITAL MATTER
Does playing a karaoke version of a song on youtube and singing on top of it count as synthesizing analog and digital sounds? lol
Processing, Programming, Creating.
Bringing things together.
I definitely only really think of music. I don’t jump to other forms of media when hearing this, but when you relate it to digital matter, then i stop thinking of music and think of waves.
We saw in the first session how waves, or frequencies can be applied to more than sound, with the JPEG compression stuff.
My first thought with the word synthesis is sound, the act of synthesizing sound putting things together maybe sound and image?
