This talk is titled "ANS coding replacing Huffman and AC -- from introduction to patent issues," and was presented at LibrePlanet 2022 by Jarek Duda.
Jarek is an Assistant Professor with Jagiellonian University. Jarek will be joined by Jozef Halbesztadt.
This talk is about ANS and the patent vultures it has attracted. The ANS coding family, which in recent years is replacing Huffman and arithmetic coding in data compressors, is currently used, for example, in the Linux kernel, default DNA compression, products of Apple, Facebook, Google, and many others like JPEG XL.
