Two public service announcements
1. The 2014 IEEE North American Summer School on Information Theory will take place June 18-21, 2014 at the Fields Institute in Toronto, Canada.
2. For those of you who use Matlab or Octave, there is a new Information Theoretical Estimators (ITE) toolbox, an open-source toolbox “capable of estimating many different variants of entropy, mutual information, divergence, association measures, cross quantities, and kernels on distributions.” Some more details are available in the guest post by the toolbox’s creator, Zoltán Zsabó, at the Princeton Information Theory b-log.
