It is anticipated that future communication systems will involve the use of new technologies, requiring high-speed computations using large amounts of data, in order to take advantage of data-driven methods for improving services and providing reliability and other benefits. In many cases, information theory can provide a fundamental understanding of the limits to the reliability, robustness, secrecy, privacy, resiliency, and latency of such systems. The aim of this Featured Special Issue has been to develop a collection of top information and coding theoretic results that provide insight into future communication and computation systems.
