Directed information was born at the TUM Institute for Communications Engineering as a product of Hans Marko's efforts to create a bidirectional communication theory whose aim was to distinguish the direction of information flow for mutually coupled statistical systems. James Massey took up and refined the idea many years later and the topic is becoming increasingly popular for measuring causality and dependence. Application areas are, for example, communication network capacity, econometrics, gambling, gene networks, and computational neuroscience. This workshop brings together leading scientists working on bidirectional communication and directed information theory with the aim of advancing the boundaries of knowledge on the topic.
