A powerful theory due to Ornstein and his collaborators has been successfully applied to many random systems to show that they are isomorphic to independent and identically distributed systems. The isomorphisms provided by Ornstein's theory may not be finitary, that is, effectively realizable in practice. Despite the large number of systems known to be Bernoulli, there are only a handful of cases where explicit finitary isomorphisms have been constructed. In this talk, we will discuss classical and recent constructions, and some long standing open problems.
