DISCUSSION / OUTLOOK

Our results show that neural networks are promising tools for loss-free data compression. It was demonstrated that even off-line methods based on small time windows can lead to excellent compression ratios - at least with small text files, they can outperform conventional standard algorithms. We have hardly begun, however, to exhaust the potential of the basic approach.
