Conceptual and practical encoding/decoding, aimed at accurately reproducing remotely collected observations, has been heavily investigated since the pioneering works by Shannon about source coding. However, when the goal is not to reproduce the observables, but making inference about an embedded parameter and the scenario consists of many unconnected remote nodes, the landscape is less certain. We consider a multiterminal system designed for efficiently estimating a random parameter according… CONTINUE READING
