very much so, since he also jumped and saved himself
Are we distinguishing between error detection and error correction?
I think we’re dealing with only bit flips, so detection = correction
I don't think that's true. You can send 8 bits + 1 parity bit to detect if an error happens, but you don't know which bit was flipped
(Find where error is, flip the bit?)
He is talking about encoding *which* error is happening so you'll know which bit to flip I suppose
Oh but under the condition you know which bit it is, which I think is what Steve is getting at with 2^r > M+r+1
