Ridiculous Patent: Infinite Data Compression

Posted by in category: futurism

“claims to compress any input data by at least one bit”

“Now, suppose I compress 10 different files in this way — each of them compresses to a single ‘1’ or ‘0’ (a single bit).”

Why stop at a single bit? If it can compress any input by at least one bit, then it can compress an input of one bit into 0 bits. Infinite compression!
