Lossless high entropy compression algorithm

Lossless high entropy compression algorithm

Implement your own sequence neural net

Ever dreamed of making the compression algorithm from Pied Piper featured in the popular Silicon Valley series? Here is your chance! The project aims at implementing a potentially lossless algorithm which, unlike others, can work even on high entropy data. The project will involve basic knowledge of Discrete Time Fourier Transform, signal processing. However, a major portion would involve developing expertise in neural networks with focus on RNNs, LSTMs, etc. You would implement your own sequence to sequence neural net aimed at performing a particular task which is essential to the working of compression algorithm.
