Happy Birthday Claude Shannon

Happy Birthday to Claude Shannon.

Shannon is known as the “father of information theory” because of the landmark paper he published in 1948. He is also known for founding both digital computer and digital circuit design theory in 1937. Shannon received the IEEE Medal of Honor in 1966 “For his development of a mathematical theory of communication which unified and significantly advanced the state of the art.” Claude Shannon would have been 106 on the 30th of April 2022.

Shannon had lots to do with the sampling theorem.

Happy birthday, Claude Shannon!
